Hino Rintaro is an excellent psychiatrist who has good intuition and great empathy for his patients. He works at a renowned university hospital, and he often appears as a guest consultant on television shows.

Although his superiors are offering him a professorship position, Rintaro would rather remain an ordinary psychiatrist because he wants to spend most of his time treating patients.

While out on a meal with the president of the hospital, Rintaro meets a geisha who goes by the name Yumeno. He later runs into Yumeno, who's real name is Aizawa Akira, and Rintaro is confused that she doesn't seem to recognize him. He is also troubled at how different her demeanor is when she's not working, as if she's an entirely different person.

Dr. Rintaro is an interesting drama about psychiatry and psychiatrists. Psychiatry is a medical field concerned with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental health conditions. Psychiatrists are medically qualified doctors who specialize in psychiatry, and they can prescribe medication and recommend treatments.

When he was younger, Hino Rintaro's mother had depression but he wasn't aware of it until it was too late for him to do anything because she had committed suicide. Rintaro decided he would dedicate his life to helping people with mental health issues.

Rintaro is a psychiatrist who sometimes treats his patients in unorthodox ways, but he manages to help them get better anyway. Although I don't quite agree with his methods, I suppose he should be given enough credit for getting the work done.

I think Dr. Rintaro did a fine job in raising awareness about psychiatric issues, and how important it is to seek a professional's help in some cases. However, many patients in the drama were cured through Rintaro's treatments in a very short time, and that doesn't seem to be a very realistic outcome.
