We're not often deficient in drugs and surgery. There's plenty of that to go around. What we are deficient in is connection—connection, love, support, and providing a sense of significance. That's what the physician of the future will be armed with, and Dr. Steven Eisenberg is leading the way.
Laughter heals, music is medicine, and each patient is a unique, beautiful soul in this world. These are just a few of the truths we in the medical community sometimes lose track of in the day-to-day routines of patient care. If an oncologist can figure out how to bring this kind of love, joy and compassion to his work, can’t we all?

Steven Eisenberg is a doctor who understands that health is just as much spiritual as physical. He puts music, laughter and heart front and center, and the results are magical.
Mark Hyman, MD
Two parts eminently qualified oncologist, one part comic, one part troubadour—Dr. Steven Eisenberg is a true original. His story of learning to practice medicine with a creative mind and a wide-open heart is an inspiration.
Healing comes in many forms, but this singing doc collaborating with his patients shows us a rare and special kind. This is the ideal physician to shine a light on the extraordinary power of music and creativity in medicine.
The story of this “singing doctor” and the patients who guide and inspire him is TLC for the soul. Dr. Eisenberg’s commitment to bringing hope, understanding, comfort and kindness to those in his care will make you want to kiss your kids, dance with your partner, call your mom, and put a little more love into your world.

While many doctors have remained skeptical or indifferent to the effects of positive emotions on recovery from serious illness, Dr. Steven Eisenberg has made it his life's work. He has used not only his first-rate medical acumen to heal, but he's enlisted the power of music as a partner in that process.
