Danielle Ofri, MD, PhD
I’m an internist at Bellevue Hospital, the oldest public hospital in country, and a faculty member of NYU School of Medicine. I am also editor-in-chief of the Bellevue Literary Review, the first literary journal to arise from a medical setting.
I write about medicine and the doctor-patient connection. My most recent books are What Patients Say, What Doctors Hear and What Doctors Feel: How Emotions Affect the Practice of Medicine. The book that really came from my heart was my first one, Singular Intimacies: Becoming A Doctor at Bellevue.
My writings have also appeared in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, the New England Journal of Medicine, the Lancet, Slate Magazine, and on CNN.com and National Public Radio.
I’m currently working on a book about medical error, while several unfinished novels in various states of disrepair gather prime New York City dust under my bed. I live with my husband, three children, and the endless challenges of the cello in a singularly intimate, Manhattan-sized apartment.
