1977 Best Inside Man

Dr. Kurt Isselbacher

Mass. General’s gastro-intestinal unit chief is a leading ileitis authority and colon specialist; he passes the inside dope along to Harvard medical students when he’s not writing it up for textbooks. We know of an intern who, upon learning that a friend of his was Isselbacher’s patient, asked her to secure for him the autograph of the good doctor.
