In 2004, Domińczyk appeared in the short-lived television series The Help, which also starred Mindy Cohn and Antonio Sabàto, Jr. The following year, she appeared as Bernadette in the 2005 movie The 40-Year-Old Virgin. From 2006-2007, she guest-starred on the ABC's Brothers & Sisters as Tyler Altamirano. She reprised her role in the last two episodes of the show's fifth season. Despite her being of Polish extraction, her looks have often led to her being cast in Hispanic roles, such as Anna in The Help and, most recently, as South American agent Isabella in Get Smart's Bruce and Lloyd: Out of Control. She appeared in Who Do You Love?, the Las Vegas episode "3 Babes, 100 Guns, and a Fat Chick" (2008) as a bounty hunter, and Danny's Marine Sergeant in Iraq, and as a Russian informant to Cool Breeze, played by her by-then husband Scott Foley, in The Unit. She also starred in National Lampoon's Bag Boy.
Domińczyk played the role of Lara in the film I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell. She was then signed for the recurring role, in ABC's drama series Grey's Anatomy, of Dr. Eliza Minnick, an orthopedic surgeon and residency-instruction consultant who became a love interest for Jessica Capshaw's character of Dr. Arizona Robbins, which role she originated as the program's thirteenth season began. Ultimately, Dr. Minnick's approach to surgical-residency programs led to her being fired from the hospital, and Domińczyk was, herself, released from the cast. In 2019, Domińczyk recurred as Tina Marek on ABC's Whiskey Cavalier, which starred her real-life husband Scott Foley.
