A spinoff of “Grey’s Anatomy,” this steamy drama focuses on the lives and loves of several doctors, Derek Shepherd’s ex-wife Addison Montgomery, at a private practice in Southern California. Dell Parker, one of the few nurses featured in a significant role, originally worked as a receptionist at the practice, though he was also a registered nurse. The character did make significant strides in his time at Oceanside Wellness Group, such as training to be a midwife.
