Publisher Comments:

When Danielle Ofri enters the doors of New York's legendary Bellevue Hospital as a tentative medical student, she is plunged into the teeming world of urban medicine: mysterious illnesses, patients speaking any one of a dozen languages, overworked interns devising audacious strategies to cope with the intensity of a big-city hospital. In a facility where poverty and social strife are as much a part of the pathology as any microbe, it is the medical students and interns who are thrust into the searing intimacy that is the doctor-patient relationship. With each chapter, Ofri introduces us to a new medical crisis and a human being with an intricate and compelling history.

About the Author

Danielle Ofri is an attending physician in the medical clinic at Bellevue and assistant professor of medicine at New York University. She is cofounder and editor- in-chief of the Bellevue Literary Review. Her essays have been published in numerous journals.
