Since 1998, in support of The American Lung Association, The American Cancer Society and "The Great American Smokeout" I have conducted marathon sessions in the office of my private practice. In 2014 a decision was made to set a goal to assist 250 people in their effort to be a non-smoker. I am pleased to report that we exceeded that goal and after a weeklong campaign approximately 350 individuals were treated. This accomplishment was made possible by the generous support of Southampton Hospital, The Ed & Phyllis Davis Wellness Institute's of Southhampton and Hampton Bays and with special thanks to Gurneys inn at Montauk, New York.

This was all done the week before Thanksgiving Holiday. Traditionally The Great American Smokeout is recognized Thursday before Thanksgiving. Individuals are encouraged to not smoke for that 24 hour period. 

In late Spring of 2015 a decision was made to launch the inaugural "Great Hamptons & North Fork Smoke out" with a goal of assisting 2500 smokers to reclaim their health, happiness & life as non-smokers. 

The Great Hamptons & North Fork Smokeout 2015 begins on August 25, 2015 at The Ed & Phyllis Davis Wellness Institute, Southampton, New York and continues through January 12, 2016. Currently the Smokeout locations will be at The Ed & Phyllis Davis Wellness Institute's and Southampton & Hampton Bays, New York, the Riverhead Hyatt, and at my private practice in Westhampton Beach. Currently I'm in negotiation with locations in Southhold, Montauk, East Hampton and Patchogue. Please check the schedule at the website at as will be updating and adding dates and locations throughout the Smokeout.
