By Douglas Lorah
Meet Dr. G, Chief Medical Examiner. During her free time, she's the devoted wife and mother of two young boys, but during days and many evenings and weekends, she spends her time solving medical mysteries as one of the nation's leading forensic pathologists.
Discovery Health Channel's highly acclaimed series profiles the profession of Dr. G -- formally known as Dr. Jan Garavaglia -- in DR. G: MEDICAL EXAMINER, a series that premiered in July and continues to air regularly on Fridays at 9 PM ET/PT. New episodes will premiere Friday, January 28 at 9 PM ET/PT.
In this compelling series, Dr. G explains to viewers how people can die suddenly and unexpectedly. She uses cutting-edge forensic science and technology to solve the mysteries of life and death.
Dr. G's work is a public service to the community as she determines cause and manner of death. She also plays a significant role in helping family members obtain closure and cope with the tragic loss of a loved one.
Each episode follows several unexplained cases. Viewers have the opportunity to witness the extent to which Dr. G goes to ensure that the victims -- and the families they've left behind -- rest in peace.
