Ignatius 'Iggy' Frome is a main character on New Amsterdam. He is Head of Psychology at New Amsterdam Medical Center, and a respected psychiatrist. He works closely with other department heads, specifically Vijay Kapoor, and treats his patients carefully.
Concerns that Iggy is too involved with his patients — and that he is breaching hospital policy — are filed against Iggy by a social worker that witnesses him hugging one of the children in his care. This damages Iggy's confidence to some extent, however he eventually recovers after a short-lived investigation by Helen Sharpe.
