Dr. David Dosa

David Dosa MD, MPH is a practicing geriatrician and health services researcher at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. In July 2007, David garnered international attention for an essay on Oscar that was published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

After the story made headlines on morning television programs and newspapers around the world (not to mention People Magazine), David decided to write a book about his experiences with Oscar. That book, entitled Making Rounds with Oscar-The Extraordinary Gift of an Ordinary Cat was written mostly on nights and weekends during the ensuing months.

David lives with his wife Dionne and their two children outside of Providence, Rhode Island. Unfortunately, like many of the characters in his book, David and his wife are also now part of the “Sandwich Generation”- a generation caught between raising children and caring for a parent with Alzheimer’s Disease.
