Call me Dr. Paul! I am a native of Brooklyn,NY but have lived in Baltimore -Washington for 40 years. My wife and I love each other but she lives and works in LA. My projects are my 'children." Maybe I'll be a real dad in my next life. But great that you have kids! Hats off to you, truly! I am a house calls physician (yup I make house calls) and geriatrics specialist ( and hotelier) I love both aspects of my work (health care and hospitality) . As an associate clinical professor of medicine at George Washington University I round with my enthusiastic medical students to the homes of homebound elders in underserved areas of the District of Columbia. In this - the autumn of my career - I aspire to support medical excellence, build team spirit, teach and inspire medical students and residents and keep patients well cared for. By sharing medical judgement, humility, warmth and humor, I strive to keep my patients comfortable and happy. My other passions include African art and culture, architecture, Judeo-African connections, interior design, cinema and community service.I am honored to be the co-founder of the Port Antonio Homeless Shelter, which I help fund through rentals at Madison House Baltimore. I am the founder and designer of socially conscious, ecotourism retreats in Port Antonio, Jamaica - Great Huts Resort and Africana House (see (Website hidden by Airbnb) and I have the honor of having established a number of internationally recognized cross cultural educational programs in Jamaica including Cinema Paradise: Portie Film Festival.

I am completing my second book, House Calls: Tales of an Aging Geriatrician. I am a percussionist and vocalist and often sing American standards and Broadway favorites at Supanos and other Karaoke venues. Come sing with me!
