Peter Benton is a very good surgeon. He has an abrasive personality and that is shown repeatedly through his treatment of intens and co-workers. He is typically very ambitious and in the first few seasons proved to be a mentor, friend, and antagonist to John Carter. Throughout the series he helped John Carter overcome a drug addiction and dealt with losing his nephew and his deaf son.
