In the 1980’s, Dr. Richard Lawrence Dombroff was recognized as one of the most prominent plastic surgeons of his time, and his operating room on Park Avenue in New York was a pilgrimage destination for surgeons from all over the world. Dombroff amassed a fortune and lived a life of private jets, Trump Tower penthouses, and worldwide media spotlight adulation.

However, in a page torn tragically from Hemingway or Tom Wolfe, Dombroff's rarefied world came crashing down, leading him through a desert of darkness and a decade of desperation, ultimately all the way from the 30th floor of Trump Tower to the foot of the Cross.

Now, Dombroff tells all in “The Great Physician” as he explores the ugliness of all the “broken places.” Dombroff shares his journey to discovering faith, redemption, and healing as he is determined to bring the Gospel of Jesus to a hurting world.

“It is written for those who are sick and suffering, alone and so desperately sad and distraught,” said Dombroff. “My greatest hope is that after reading this, people will develop a thirst to know Him better and to love Him more.”

Today, Dombroff is a senior Christian chaplain, specializing in terminal care at nursing homes and hospices, where he ministers the message of hope to the sick, the suffering, and the dying during their final days and moments of life. He is also renowned as “The Facebook Chaplain” for the innovative Christian ministry he founded, ministering 24/7 to the worldwide social media community on Facebook.

“This is the perfect book for those looking for healing and hope,” said Dombroff. “No matter what you’re going through today, you will turn the last page emboldened and ennobled, knowing in your heart that somehow it has been written just for you.”
