I wasn't sure what to expect when I drove up to the dilapidated apartment building. His neighbor, who had made the referral, thought that he had broken his leg when he had tried to leave his third-story walk-up apartment for the first time in 6 months. I parked my car and took out my black bag, which had grown over the last year—now able to hold a portable EKG machine, lab supplies, handheld Doppler, and a host of other diagnostics. These were the resources that I had initially come to rely on in my practice. As a young, white, female physician, I never wore my white coat for fear of further “sticking out” in a very urban, poor, predominately black neighborhood in Washington, DC.
