The Washington, D.C., jail has big metal doors that slam shut. It looks and feels like a jail. But down a hall in the medical wing, past an inmate muttering about suicide, there's a room that looks like a normal doctor's office.
"OK, deep breaths in and out for me," says Dr. Reggie Egins to his patient, Sean Horn, an inmate in his 40s. They talk about how his weight has changed in his six weeks in jail, how his medications are working out and if he's noticed anything different about his vision. Egins schedules an ophthalmology appointment for Horn.
