About the Author
Lucy E. Hornstein, MD
has been a solo family physician in the Philadelphia suburbs for 18 years. She was born and raised in Washington DC (which has left her with a deep and abiding apathy for all things political) and attended college outside Boston before coming to medical school in Philadelphia, which, she has discovered, is a black hole. (No one born here ever leaves; no one who moves here ever leaves.) She has been blogging since August 2006 when she assumed the persona of ""#1 Dinosaur,"" a nod to the impending extinction of primary care.
