Leon E. Curry, M.D. spent a
career as a successful small-town physician in Metter, Georgia. He was
one of the first physicians to pioneer treating children with ADHD in
1969, and developed Georgia’s first rural hemodialysis center in 1973.
But none of this prepared him for
the chance encounter that changed his
life in 1975 - one that challenged everything he had learned in his

in his office, hospital, and dialysis centers, and at the Rhine
Research Center, Medical University of South Carolina, and Medical
College of Georgia. He has spent more than three decades researching
the link between psychic phenomena and medical diagnosis, while
maintaining a healthy scientific curiosity and scholarly skepticism.
In The Doctor and the Psychic, Dr.
Curry makes a powerful argument
for continued study of this under-explored field of medical research.
You will learn firsthand about their discoveries, see the impressive
results of their experiments, and hear directly from people whose lives
were powerfully impacted, personally and medically, by Greta
