Product Overview

In Singular Intimacies, which the New England Journal of Medicine said captured the "essence of becoming and being a doctor," Danielle Ofri led us into the hectic, constantly challenging world of big-city medicine. In Incidental Findings, she's finished her training and is learning through practice to become a more rounded healer.
"Ofri's thoughtful and honest second book--the title is inspired by her realization, during her own amniocentesis, that conditions that seem minor to doctors are monumental when they happen to you--is equal parts The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and Kitchen Confidential."
--Nicholas Confessore, New York Times Book Review
"Dr. Ofri, a physician, distills wisdom from the maelstrom of New York City's Bellevue Hospital in this emotional memoir. In a series of poignant vignettes, the internist grapples with the hearts of the sick, literally and metaphorically. Her patients range from the terminally ill to manipulative hypochondriacs, from veiled Bangladeshi women to convicted felons. A must-read for students of psychology and medicine in need of a lesson in compassion."
--Psychology Today
"Danielle Ofri is a finely gifted writer, a born storyteller as well as a born physician."
--Oliver Sacks
