From a doctor Oliver Sacks has called a born storyteller, a riveting account of practicing medicine at a fast-paced urban hospital.

For two decades, Dr. Danielle Ofri has cared for patients at Bellevue, the oldest public hospital in the country and a crossroads for the world's cultures. In Medicine in Translation she introduces us, in vivid, moving portraits, to her patients, who have braved language barriers, religious and racial divides, and the emotional and practical difficulties of exile in order to access quality health care. Living and dying in the foreign country we call home, they have much to teach us about the American way, in sickness and in health.

    " Excellent personal testament on how medicine becomes the art of relationship with patients, especially in learning and feeling different lives. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debbie Blicher | 10/9/2013

    " Weak narrative through-line, weak editing between sections. Worst of all, though I'm sure Ofri is lovely in person, she comes off as self-centered & clueless as a narrator. "

    " Interesting about the range of patients and backgrounds but I guess I was looking for more medical, less background. "

    " It's a great read. Good storytelling and a glimpse of medicine, a healer's story. "

    " A wonderful peek into the mind of a practicing physician working with patients from every culture. Highly recommended "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kieran | 10/21/2012

    " Eh. Interesting stories but the book had no structure to hold them together. One of the most blatant examples of "I make more money from a book than from New Yorker articles, so I guess my articles make a book!" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 4/25/2012

    " Thumbs up for this 3rd Ofri book which covers her work with torture victims and immigrants, and her own sabbatical to learn Spanish to communicate better w/ her patients. And thank you to her patients for letting her write about them! "
