“Besides my interest and love of medicine, I am an avid baseball fan. I love the game and love watching my grandchildren play it. I also like to read espionage novels and political papers. However, my first love, aside from my wife and family, is medicine. My GP (family doctor) when I was eleven, Dr. Paul Siegel, was my inspiration. He was always so happy when I saw him. Because the practice of medicine can be stressful, I do serious treadmill aerobics and weight training at least twice weekly. I also de-stress every Friday evening at Temple Emanu-el. That spiritual experience prepares me for the next week.”
