About the author (2010)

JEROME A. KESSLER graduated from the University of Minnesota Medical School in 1980, completed residency training in North Dakota, and then started a private practice in 1986. He holds a B.A. in psychology, an M.D., and national board certifications in three specialties – Internal Medicine, Family Practice and Geriatrics. He is a devoted husband and father.
