Vivid Imagination – Honore de Balzac

While he lay sick on his deathbed, the famous French writer Honore de Balzac (1799-1850) was unhappy that his health care was in the hands of some unknown doctors who unsuccessfully tried to help him.

-I do not want you to treat me - cry out in delirium the sick writer. Call doctor Bianchon! - pleaded Balzac.

Was Bianchon a famous doctor? In a certain sense, he still is. 
Horace Bianchon was a character from Balzac’s novel “Old Goriot(Le Père Goriot) - a fictional character.
