GERALD SMALLBERG is a practicing neurologist in New York City. He is an Attending Neurologist at Lenox Hill Hospital and Director of The Murray G. & Beatrice H. Sherman Cerebrospinal Fluid Dynamics Center at Lenox Hill Hospital. He is also an Attending Neurologist at the Hospital for Special Surgery.
The practice of neurology over the years has provided Gerald Smallberg with clinical experience to fully appreciate that although medicine is compelled to rely on its understanding of the natural history of disease with its patterns and probability, correlations and associations, cause and effect, it still will crash up against the element of chance and the uniqueness of each patient. From his privileged position caring for patients, he has with his writing tried to capture the enigmas and mysteries that define the essence of the human condition.
He is also the playwright of Charter Members and The Gold Ring that had short runs off-off Broadway.
