As we all know, being a patient doesn’t begin or end in the exam room. At The Paper Gown, we explore every step of the patient experience — getting sick and getting well, preventing disease and living with it. We never pretend that insurance policies are simple or that all patients have equal access to healthcare. And above all else, we strive to help patients feel informed, empowered and understood, one story at a time. 

The Paper Gown is powered by Zocdoc and edited by Theresa Fisher, a health and science journalist.
