Check-Up (Series) (1963)

Check-Up was a half-hour show on health care over the summer of 1963. Each program was devoted to a specific medical problem or disease. In the first part, a doctor examined a patient and makes a diagnosis. In the second part, the program host, Lloyd Robertson, introduced the doctor to a panel of laymen. Under their questioning, the doctor explained his observations and his decisions regarding treatment. In a third part, the doctor and patient are shown in a scene from several days or weeks later, so that viewers can observe how the treatment has worked or how the malady has progressed. In a conclusion, Robertson and the doctor discuss the significance of the disease or problem.
