After returning from my drafted 2 years in the army, I returned to LAC/USC to complete my residency. I began working with my mentor Dr.Nicoloff in clinical and research thyroidology. With his help I received a 2 year NIH fellowship to study under him. Following the 2 years I applied for a Royal Society of Medicine traveling fellowship to study under Reginald Hall in Newcastle upon Tyne.
When I returned to the US, I opened my thyroid practice in Santa Monica Cal. Both Professor Hall and Dr.Nicoloff have both passed away. Both were world expert thyroidologists. Professor Hall published many thyroid articles including this book.
