‘Grey’s Anatomy’ fans will likely remember seeing Greg Germann don a white coat in the long-running medical drama. He portrays Dr. Tom Koracick, a neurosurgeon with a turbulent past who never quite got over the death of his son David. He makes his first appearance in the season 14 episode “Go Big or Go Home” and becomes a recurring character until becoming a regular in seasons 16 and 17. Germann returns as a guest star for the next two years, officially walking the show in the Season 19 episode “When I Come To The Limit”.
Tom is extremely skilled at his job and isn’t afraid to praise himself even when others don’t like him for it. But really, he often puts on a tough exterior, and he drops that facade to comfort those in need, including Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson) after she suffered a miscarriage, something his ex-wife experienced twice. Due to David’s death – which occurred after being hit in the head with a baseball bat – Tom is known to have a soft spot for children. This is especially true when he’s dealing with Kimmie Park (Nayah Damasen, in a recurring role in season 14). Despite her terminal illness, Tom goes to great lengths to prolong her life so that she can fulfill her dream of seeing as many Broadway shows as possible before she dies.
Germann reprized his role on the spin-off Station 19, in which he covers battalion commander Robert Sullivan (Boris Kodjoe) in the season 3 episode “Eulogy.”
