Email a Friend

Dr. Eric Manheimer, the former Medical Director of Bellevue Hospital, discusses his memoir,Twelve Patients: Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital, which tells the stories of very different patients-from a UN dignitary to a prisoner from Riker's Island, from illegal immigrants and Wall Street tycoons. He also discusses his own cancer diagnosis and facing his own illness and possible death while he struggles to save the lives of others.
