Greatest Grey’s Anatomy Doctors – No. 7: Dr. Arizona Robbins

We’re fast approaching the top five now, so fast it’s as though we have roller sneakers on our feet. Speaking of roller sneakers, say hello to Dr. Arizona Robbins, the next entrant on our list.

Flying in way, way back in season 5, everybody was a bit unsure of what to make of our new pediatric surgeon, especially Bailey. Like most of the doctors in the series, at first, we hated Dr. Robbins, but came to love her. (Except Minnick; for her it was hate, then super hate.)

There are a number of reasons Arizona makes this list. First, Jessica Capshaw, who played Arizona until the most recent season of the series, is an extraordinary person and brilliant actress. It’s hard not to immediately like her.

As a character, Arizona has had many great moments. Her constant fight to save as many tiny humans as possible, her caring nature…they all speak to how great her character is. And how could we forget about that time she sang the lullaby “Dreams, Dreams”?

Then there’s the fact that she specializes in not one but two fields of medicine. Very few doctors at Grey Sloan do that.

In fact, the only reason Arizona is not listed higher is because she ran off to Africa and made us all panic that she was gone for good. You don’t give a fandom a heart attack like that.
