Seymour Diamond, M.D. and writer Charlie Morey have announced the introduction of Dr. Diamond’s biography, Headache Godfather – The Life and Times of Seymour Diamond, M.D.

Headache Godfather traces the life of Seymour Diamond, who was born in 1925, the son of Jewish immigrants from Ukraine and Slovakia, in Chicago, Illinois. Dr. Diamond revolutionized the practice of headache as a medical specialty when he opened the United States’ first private headache practice, the Diamond Headache Clinic, in 1974. It quickly became a headache haven for sufferers from around the world. He also established a non-profit organization, the National Headache Foundation, to support research for headache relief and to spread the knowledge among doctors and headache sufferers alike.

At 87 years of age in 2012, Dr. Diamond looks back on his battles with the Food and Drug Administration over headache treatments, the political skirmishes with those who would block his will to succeed, his globe-trotting adventures to learn and share current headache knowledge, the hundreds of thankful patients who claim that his headache treatment literally saved their lives, a frightening and emotionally painful malpractice lawsuit, and even a relationship with a Chicago mafia member whose family Dr. Diamond treated early in his medical career, and who was ultimately found in the trunk of a stolen automobile, shot to death.

Seymour Diamond is a living example of an individual who succeeded at living the American Dream. Working several jobs while attending college and medical school, applying his intelligence, energy and imagination to the world of headache medicine, and providing for his wife Elaine and their family of three daughters while building an empire of headache health, Seymour Diamond is indeed the Headache Godfather.

Headache Godfather is available in several formats, including a printed version, an Amazon Kindle eBook and a Barnes & Noble Nook Book.
