Sinai Hospitals in New York, and was later awarded a fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh. He was the first Jewish doctor hired in Boston at the Lahey clinic. He later returned to Edmonton as the first allergist in Western Canada and became a Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Alberta. He published over 50 professional papers and wrote three chapters in Medical texts. He was selected as one of the 100 Physicians of the Century by the Alberta Medical Association in 2005.
