In 1965, I returned to Northwestern as Chief of Psychiatry and Neurology, VA Research Hospital. While serving as a LCDR, USN Medical Corps (1961-65), my original research documented abnormalities of adrenal dysfunction in depressive disorders. In 1969, with the rank of Associate Professor, I resigned my position at VA Research. I went into full-time private practice. I was a Senior Attending Psychiatrist, and Senior Attending Neurologist at Evanston Hospital until shortly after 9/11/2001. During most of those years, I taught neuropsychopharmacology to Evanston Hospital psychiatry residents. Following 9/11/2011, I resigned from inpatient and teaching responsibilities because I was requested to serve in an advisory capacity for national government service. I continued my private practice in Kenilworth, and it still remains active.
I am a Distinguished Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, Life Fellow of the Pan-American Medical Association, and Fellow of the Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine. I was a founding member of the board of directors of the Institute for Advancement in Prosthetics, and a director of the Barr Foundation. There has been perennial recognition as one of America's Top Psychiatrists by the Consumers Research Council of America, selection as a charter member of Peer-Reviewed Physicians, and as a top doctor in the Global Directory of Who's Who.
My recent book Medical Dollar$ and Life-Saving Sense is a medical travelogue for patient enlightenment about obtaining economical, quality care in the 2014 environment of managed care and Obamacare.
Following about 40 years of full time family practice, I practiced part time and served as Physician Electronic Heath Record Advisor. I wound down by part time correctional medicine, and fully retired on 31 October 2013. I did not renew my license to practice medicine.
