Richard Campana, Founder

Welcome to the Leslie-Cam® Stop Smoking Center, the region’s first clinic to utilize auriculotherapy for smoking cessation. Leslie-Cam® has treated over 90,000 patients since opening it’s doors in 1991.

Auriculotherapy treatment was first introduced by UCLA in the 1950s. We have modified it to specifically treat smoking cessation. Once a habitual smoker, I utilized this therapy to help overcome my daily dependency on cigarettes. Nicotine was indeed ruling my life. Auriculotherapy made it possible to once and for all stop smoking.

Realizing the high costs and health issues associated with smoking, Roger D. Leslie, MD, and I founded this clinic to help others eliminate their nicotine dependency and to help save lives. Over the years, we have greatly improved this therapy and offer the most effective method found anywhere to treat nicotine addiction.

I am personally involved with the day-to-day management of patient care. My background includes in-depth studies of the sciences related to addiction and endocrinology. This includes a BSC degree from St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia, Canada, and an MS from Boston College. I have also been part of a scientific team at the Harvard Research Labs in Boston, MA.

Our medical advisor is Neil Ettinger, MD. Dr. Ettinger received his undergraduate education at Vanderbilt University and earned his Doctor of Medicine from Washington University. He is board certified in Internal Medicine, Pulmonary Disease, Sleep Medicine and Critical Care Medicine.

Dr. Ettinger is also a member of the American College of Physicians, American College of Chest Physicians, American Thoracic Society, American Sleep Disorders Association, and American Association of Bronchology.

You can be assured you will receive the most effective treatment for smoking cessation available today when you visit the Leslie-Cam® Stop Smoking Center. We look forward to seeing you.

– Richard J. Campana, BSC.
