Dr George G. Ritchie in 1967 entered a private psychiatry practice in Charlottesville, Virginia and in 1983 moved to Anniston, Alabama, to serve as head of the Department of Psychiatry at the Northeast Alabama Regional Medical Centre. He returned to Richmond in 1986 to continue in private practice until his retirement in 1992. He died in 2007.
"George Ritchie's gripping account of his near-death experience and subsequent spiritual transformation is the best such book in print. Dr. Ritchie is the finest man I've ever known, and I urge everyone who is interested in the extraordinary visions of the dying to read "My Life After Dying."" --Raymond Moody, PhD, MD, author of "Life After Life," inspired by Dr. George Ritchie's story
