Hank's pathetic attempts to keep working with back-pain without painkiller are doomed from the start. Evan ceases the opportunity to test Hankmed's contingency plan: a loco, and due to unclear instructions, Evan gets to select Dr. Paul Van Dyke. Despite his disappointment not to be closely collaborating with Divya, he proves a commercial genius compared to Hank, a natural at recruiting regular clients. However Paul's refusal to accommodate crazy expectations, like from Ms. Newberg, whose phantom pains can't be tested, make Evan reassess the HankMed unique selling proposition. Hank meanwhile concentrates on counseling advanced lupus-diagnoses golf pro Jack O'Malley, who is inclined to participate in immunology specialist Nina Greene's double-blind drug experiment. Divya hopes to settle her debts by auctioning collector china, but it gets stolen by parking valet Floyd, who has a terrible accident while chased by her and Jill. Written by KGF Vissers
