‘Desert Doc’ docuseries offers inside look at Odessan emergencies

“Desert Doc,” a 2024 docuseries on Amazon Prime, is offering a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the real-life emergencies and dangers that Odessans face every day.

The first season of the docuseries includes 13 episodes centering on Dr. Sudip Bose, the medical director for Odessa Fire Rescue. With a past that includes serving as combat physician with the U.S. Army in Iraq, Dr. Bose now helps save lives in West Texas, according to Amazon Prime.

At its heart, “Desert Doc” offers a sobering look at emergency medicine stretched to the limits.

From his time in the ER and on the battlefield, Dr. Bose said on his website that he has become one of America’s most experienced doctors on mass casualty, disaster care, and PTSD.

The City of Odessa said that Dr. Bose works hand in hand with Odessa Fire Rescue to continue improving emergency health care response from the moment the 911 call is made until the patient arrives at the hospital.

Since 1973, Odessa Fire Rescue has been the emergency medical service provider for the City of Odessa and Ector County, according to the City of Odessa.

Viewer discretion is advised by Amazon Prime due to the real-life emergencies featured in the docuseries. Check out this video about it from the city.
