In the prequel to his current role as the most beloved educator in

professional skin care, The Cookie Doctor, Peter T. Pugliese, MD shares

his own true stories of his early family medical practice in historic

(and at times hysterical) Bernville, Pennsylvania, from 1958 to 1978. At

age 88, this vibrant storyteller shares an intimate and fascinating

look back at his own pathway of obstacles and miracles that led him from

Catholic school to the seminary where he planned a life in the

priesthood, to two wars, to falling in love, and unexpectedly falling

into one of the most remarkable medical practices of our time. The

stories contain themes that still resonate today, as the reader sees how

young Dr. Pugliese dealt with health problems of addiction, post-partum

depression, incest, anorexia and more, secrets that no one spoke openly

about sixty years ago. Patients brought every kind of crisis to the

young doctor, whose descriptions of the picturesque farmlands and small

close-knit community give the reader a sense of a time, and certainly a

kind of medicine, we will never see again. The historical accuracy of

medical breakthrough moments is woven beautifully throughout a powerful

patchwork quilt of recollections and reflections. A man of deep faith

and humanity, Dr. Pugliese has always demonstrated a vision for the

future, and for the health and security of the people entrusted to his

care. With a global presence as an educator in the field of esthetics, a

practice which will continue to grow as the population ages, Dr.

Pugliese is truly a healer for our time.
