Greatest Grey’s Anatomy Doctors – No. 6: Dr. Alex Karev

It’s Karev’s turn now. One of the few remaining original members of Grey’s Anatomy, I wonder how many of you thought he would still be here 15 seasons later?

Well, he is, and that is by no means because of luck. Shonda doesn’t believe in such ho-donkey nonsense. Karev is still around because of how great he is.

A pediatric surgeon who advocates for children probably better than Arizona ever did, Dr. Karev is always trying to do the right thing, no matter the situation he’s in. He looks out for his friends and colleagues despite not really liking them.

And he is officially now Meredith’s “Person.” If there is one thing every Grey’s Anatomy fan knows, it’s that being someone’s “Person” is a pretty big deal.

It’s hard to believe that this is the guy who gave George syphilis, which sounds completely wrong if you don’t know the details. Still, that isn’t the worst thing Karev has done. He almost ended up in prison for assault, and there was that one time he was chased by a bear.

Why do we love this guy again? I have no idea; that’s just what it is like being a Grey’s Anatomy fan.
