Together with his wife, Mary, he has been providing part-time complementary medicine services to patients at the Cleveland Clinic Cancer Center since 2017.

He is the author of twenty-two books that cover nonfiction, poetry, and photography, in addition to many articles in academic and professional journals. In October 2023, he published a popular personal memoir, 'Stories from an Hourglass, ' which shares many insights from his personal and professional life. Born in the steel and coal regions of Eastern Ohio, Don's early life in Martins Ferry and St. Clairsville lends a genuine depth to his life story. He and his wife live in Chagrin Falls, Ohio.
