Dr. Knudson is Japanese and comes from a very different medical culture than we're used to in the US, so she can sometimes come across as harsh. That said, no one goes to bat for her patients like Dr. Knudson. If one of her patients is not being treated right, she'll demand that it be fixed right...more
