The doctor becomes the patient on 'Dr. Ken'

Episode 111: "Ken's Physical" airs Friday, January 15 at 8:30pm on ABC

On this week's Dr. Ken, the tables are turned when Ken has to get a physical.

Inspired by executive producer/star Ken Jeong's real life and career as a medical doctor, the multi-camera comedy Dr. Ken follows Dr. Ken Park, a physician with bad bedside manner trying to juggle medicine and being a family man to his wife and kids -- and not quite succeeding on either front.

Dr. Ken also stars the awesome Suzy Nakamura as Ken's wife Allison, Krista Marie Yu as daughter Molly, and Albert Tsai as his son Dave. They're all great. The cast is rounded out by Tisha Campbell-Martin as Damona, Jonathan Slavin as Clark, Kate Simses as Julie and Dave Foley as Pat.

Allison is upset to find out that Ken hasn't had a physical in years and urges him to do so. Ken asks Julie to sign that he's had a physical, but Julie insists on doing the real thing due to her professionalism. After the physical, Julie learns that Ken is suffering from moments of high stress – he blames Allison at first, but then they both realize it's due to their kids and their growing concerns. Meanwhile, Molly is having trouble holding down a job to earn money to go to skiing, but uses her entrepreneurial spirit to make the den's bathroom available to a nearby film crew – much to her parents' dismay.
