'Private Practice' Recap: Switcheroo!

Change is in the air at Oceanside Wellness and Pacific Wellcare (don't you just love how they have the same name?) this week, with doctors switching jobs all over the place. But we'll get to that. First, there's our patient of the week: a little boy whose mom is a 15-year-old homeless girl. Cooper, Addison, and Sam meet her at a homeless shelter and when they realize the boy has serious heart problems, they bring him in.

Sam wants to operate on him for free, knowing no one else will do it, but Addison tells him he can't just jump back into surgery. Addison opts to call the girl's mom instead. That turns out to be a disaster, sending the girl and her boy back out onto the street, where the boy's condition worsens. But Coop and Addison find them, Sam operates, and then the young mom makes peace with her own mother. It's actually touching, despite the After School Special sentimentality.
