The Cookie Doctor


Peter T. Pugliese, MD


In the prequel to his current role as the most beloved educator in professional skin care, Peter T. Pugliese, MD shares his own true stories of his early family medical practice in historic (and often 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 addiction, post-partum depression, incest, anorexia and more health problems no one spoke openly about sixty years ago.
