I am a prostate cancer survivor and an ordained rabbi with a doctoral degree in gerontology, and I live with my family in Sarasota, Florida. See my complete bio for more information about my background.
In my 30 years as a congregational rabbi and chaplain, I often counseled people faced with serious illness. Following my successful robotic surgery for prostate cancer in April, 2007, I was moved to share my experience by writing CONQUER PROSTATE CANCER: How Medicine, Faith, Love and Sex Can Renew Your Life.
Like my book, this site is an extension of my life's work, reaching out to people who seek support and guidance. Also contributing to this site are Robert Carey, M.D., Ph.D., who is a robotic surgeon at the Urology Treatment Center of Sarasota, Florida, David Kauder, M.D., formerly managing partner for one of the largest urology practices in Massachusetts, and James Occhiogrosso, N.D., a Natural Health Practitioner and herbalist specializing in male and female health and sexual issues. All three of these men have agreed to serve as volunteer consultants for this site and to respond to your questions. We will be happy to respond to any general questions you may have – just click on the Ask A Question link.
We aim to educate and enable you to recover and maintain your health based on informed opinion and our combined experience. We'll provide solid nourishment for your body, mind and soul, with the hope that you’ll share your successes as well as your challenges. However, you should make your medical decisions with the guidance of your doctor or health care practitioner.
