I’m Sapana Adhikari, an ER doctor and a medical illustrator. Over the years, I’ve been collecting all the questions that patients ask (anatomy, diagnosis, etc.) I thought that if someone had a question, several others likely do as well. So, I started illustrating the answers to what patients actually ask. I tried to simplify them for the non-medical audience.

Every Tuesday, I’ll send you an illustrated post about “What Patients Ask.” Please share these posts with your friends and family. My goal is to educate the non-medical population about medical concepts simply and visually.

In addition, I’ll send an occasional post (once every 1-2 months) about things that inspire me: medical humanities, creativity, medical art, books. I’m also an oil painter in the genre of Narrative Medicine and will share occasional information on my art projects and processes.
