Danielle Ofri

Physician & Author

When Danielle Ofri isn’t seeing patients at Bellevue Hospital, the oldest public hospital in the country, she’s writing about medicine and the doctor-patient connection for the New York Times and other publications. She is the co-founder and editor-in-chief of the Bellevue Literary Review, the first literary journal to arise in a medical center. Dr. Ofri is the author of four books about the world of medicine: What Doctors Feel, Medicine in Translation, Incidental Findings, and Singular Intimacies: Becoming a Doctor at Bellevue.

Danielle lives with several unfinished novels in various states of disrepair under her bed, three kids, an aging lab-mutt, and the forever challenges of the cello in a singularly intimate Manhattan-sized apartment.
