    ​My wife has pancreatic cancer diagnosed Mar. 3, 2012. By January 15, 2013 it had spread to her lungs and she is on heavy chemotherapy now. I have cut back to the point that I am in the office only three hours a day. Barry Mennen MD, my able student, is renting space in the office to see patients when I'm not here. In a pinch, he could cover me. He knows what I know and uses my methods.

    In December I will turn 65 years old. I will look into Social Security & other assets and decide whether to retire. After 8 years of science, 30 years of practice and 18 years of bariatric study, I have reached perfection. I never fail with my target group--overweight or modestly obese motivated smart people. I do better with women than with men. But I am as baffled as any of you with the majority of the population, people who aren't smart or motivated, and the super-obese.

    I'd like a new challenge. I want to teach journal club at a medical school, teaching students that doctors must study scientific literature even if they don't get paid for it. The practice of medicine is an art, a profession, NOT a mere business. Most practicing American doctors are pampered, lazy, greedy, illiterate men (mostly men) who deserve no respect. Their mental lethargy holds our country back, making medicine expensive and ineffective. I said so on television, and I can back up the assertion. Read my book on Amazon & Kindle "Medical Myths Doctors Believe".

    I can't make an impact on doctors in practice because they are out of touch, but maybe I can influence young minds before they are corrupted. Albert Einstein said, "Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think."

    So sorry to hear about your wife. Best wishes to your family as your wife faces this challenge. I have been reading here for quite some time. I think your future plans sound perfect. We need more rational, caring doctors like you.

    I am keeping you, your wife and your family in my prayers. As a client over many years, you have helped me a lot. I first met you when I was in high school, saw you once again after I graduated college and married, then again after I had my second child. Throughout my weight management journey, you have been there for me and I checked into your website once again as my second baby prepares for kindergarten in the fall because I know your method works. While I am saddened to learn about your wife's prognosis, I know that this is just the beginning of a new adventure for you and your family. I wish you only the best.
