He practiced ophthalmology in Arizona from 1971 to 1992, including 20 years in Scottsdale and 18 years in Huron, South Dakota, prior to moving to Arizona.

Together with their mother, Roberta, the sons dedicate their practice to WRJK’s memory. Today, Roberta still visits the staff, bringing homemade cookies and her famous lemon bars—which is exactly the way WRJK would have wanted it.
