Dr. G: Medical Examiner, an American documentary-style show, premiered on Discovery Health in 2004. It stars Dr. Jan C. Garavaglia, a physician specializing in anatomic and forensic pathology who, during her tenure at the District Nine Medical Examiner's Office in Florida, performed over 5,000 autopsies to determine cause and manner of death.

Each episode features Dr. G as she investigates the death of a person whose cause remains unclear. Throughout each investigation, Dr. G is seen in conversation with law enforcement personnel, family members, and friends of the deceased. The show also features reenactments and footage from news events that pertain to the case.

One primary objective of the show is to educate viewers about the importance of forensic pathology and the science behind determining cause of death. Dr. G strives to explain the world of medical examiners and how they play a critical role in solving cases.

The investigations conducted in each episode can focus on a broad range of deaths, including those deemed natural causes, suicide, homicide, accidental deaths, and medical malpractice. Dr. G explores how external factors, such as drug use or a pre-existing medical condition, could influence the cause and manner of death.

Through her investigations, Dr. G aims to educate viewers on the consequences of unhealthy lifestyle choices, including pseudo-medical treatments or not seeking timely medical care. The show's authenticity is dedicated to the detailed and meticulous background information of each case and the team's efforts to pursue each lead.

Dr. G: Medical Examiner is a show that combines science with storytelling. It is one of the few shows that reveals the intricacies and challenges faced by medical examiners as they seek to uncover the truth behind the death of a person.

The show features real-life cases that are often graphic in nature; therefore, viewer discretion is advised. However, the main focus of the show is to educate viewers on the science of determining cause and manner of death, rather than shock and awe.
