Dr. G: Medical Examiner
Dr. G: Medical Examiner is a reality television series shown on the Discovery Health Channel . Dr. G, or Dr. Jan Garavaglia, is a Medical Examiner with Florida's District Nine Medical Examiner's office in Orlando, Florida.
This series features Dr. G working on unexplained deaths in the Orlando area, as well as similar deaths from her last position as a Medical Examiner in Bexar County, Texas. The shows feature dramatic re-enactments of the events leading up to the person's death as well as the autospies. Also interviews of Dr. G, family members, and other people connected to the deaths are shown.
The unexplained death cases that Dr. G works on can come from a variety of factors, such as undiagnosed medical conditions, accidents, or foul play. In one instance, a woman who attempted suicide died a few days after her attempt. Dr. G found that her death was actually due to another condition and was not by her own hand. Another instance dealt with human bones that had been found by railroad tracks. Through an autospy and investigative work it was discovered that the remains were those of a missing girl who had been killed by her mother.
