Salen has been putting pressure on Shaun, according to his fans. Shaun was stressed by the changes she made. Season 5 Episode 4 of The Good Doctor featured Shaun being surprised to see a billboard featuring his image and the tagline “Doctor with ASD.” He confronted Salen.
Before displaying the billboard at the hospital, she didn’t even ask Shaun for permission. Salen and Shaun had a second debate about the incident.

Shaun gets pulled off a case
Episode 4 of The Good Doctor Season 5 featured a young girl who was admitted to the hospital with abdominal problems. Her father was well-versed in her condition and had done extensive research on the matter for many years. Salen ordered Shaun then to listen to his father and be treated as a medical consultant.
Shaun wasn’t happy with the decision that would create a stressful environment for someone with ASD. He refused to listen to his father and suggested that the child needed surgery. The test results showed that Holly didn’t need surgery and the father was correct. However, Shaun refused to listen to anyone without a medical license.
In Episode 4, Walt has a risky idea, which Shaun opposed. Andrews continued with the suggestion, which led to Holly coughing up blood. After the incident Shaun lost his cool, and he snapped at Walt, her father. Andrew then kicked Shaun out the medical room.
Later, Shaun suggested an alternative to the intestine surgery. Everyone agreed. Walt was able to accept the remodified surgery as a success, and Shaun said that he was the best father Shaun ever had.
