Dr. Steven R. Feldman is a professor of dermatology, pathology, and public health sciences at the Wake Forest University School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Dr. Steven Feldman has made significant, award-winning contributions to medical research, and he shares some of his findings in his book Compartments: How the Brightest, Best Trained, and Most Caring People Can Make Judgments That are Completely and Utterly Wrong.

In Compartments, readers journey into conflicts in healthcare and other groups and organizations, uncovering strange behaviors and hidden truths. These stories explain how separations and borders cause conflict between groups of people: first, there are things in other groups that we don’t see; second, there are things we do see that we shouldn’t trust; and third, our perceptions are controlled by the context in which we make observations.
