She revealed that speaking to medical professionals this year was extremely different than years past. Vernoff shares:</p><blockquote>"Every year, we have doctors come and tell us their stories, and usually they're telling their funniest or craziest stories. This year, it has felt more like therapy. The doctors come in and we're the first people they're talking to about these types of experiences they're having. They are literally shaking and trying not to cry, they're pale, and they're talking about it as war — a war that they were not trained for. And that's been one of our big conversations about Owen, is that he's actually trained for this in a way that most of the other doctors aren't. I feel like our show has an opportunity and a responsibility to tell some of those stories."</blockquote>
