Strong Medicine: Two Doctors Like Fire and Ice (Original Title: Strong Medicine ) is an American television series that was produced by Tammy Ader and Whoopi Goldberg for the US cable channel Lifetime . On February 5, 2006, the series was canceled in the United States after five years and a total of 132 episodes, because the audience was not satisfied. The series was until then as the longest produced series on US cable television.


The two doctors Dr. Dana Strowe and Dr. Luisa "Lu" Delgado are actually two completely different women, but they work together at the noble Rittenhouse Hospital for Gynecology. Dana comes from a famous family of doctors, is now chief gynecologist, Harvard graduate and is eager to find a remedy to cure cancer. Luisa comes from a ghetto in Philadelphia, is a single mother and previously worked at the South Philly Women's Clinic in a socially disadvantaged district, but the clinic had to be closed due to financial difficulties. While Dana hardly lets feelings flow into her work, Luisa does everything possible to care for her patients, especially the poor and disadvantaged.
