This medical comedy starred Gregory Sierra as Dr. Menzies, the harried chief resident of an inner city emergency ward. "A.E.S." stood for Adult Emergency Services.

The location was Hudson Street, New York City, an area as run down as the hospital itself. Perpetually short of funds and surrounded by a staff of lunatics, Dr. Menzies nevertheless dealt with the various accident victims coming through the door as best he could, with good humor and an occasional yearning to be somewhere else in the medical profession - anywhere else. Dr. Glick was the resident psychiatrist and J. Powell Karbo the bureaucratic hospital administrator.
