His surgical training took place at Yale New Haven Hospital, West Haven Veteran’s Hospital and the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.

In 1978 he originated Exceptional Cancer Patients, a specific form of individual and group therapy utilizing patients’ drawings, dreams, images and feelings. ECaP is based on “carefrontation,” a safe, loving therapeutic confrontation, which facilitates personal lifestyle changes, personal empowerment and healing of the individual’s life. The physical, spiritual and psychological benefits which followed led to his desire to make everyone aware of his or her healing potential. He realized exceptional behavior is what we are all capable of.
In 1986 his first book, Love. Medicine & Miracles was published. Since then he has published numerous books including Peace, Love & Healing, How To Live Between Office Visits followed, Prescriptions for Living, Help Me To Heal, 365 Prescriptions For The Soul, Smudge Bunny, 101 Exercises For The Soul and Love, Magic & Mud Pies, Buddy’s Candle, and Faith, Hope & Healing.
