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.

Dr. Eisenberg is one of our greatest story-telling physicians . . . an insatiably expressive and creative soul via song and poetry . . . and a wise, compassionate and optimistic healer, frequently against tough odds.

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?

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.

Each of us intuitively knows that body and spirit are intimately intertwined. Dr. Steven Eisenberg puts that intuition into practice as he helps his patients focus on what they love, not what they fear.

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.
