Dr. Bernie Siegel – Love, Medicine and Miracles

“When troubles happen, tell yourself: God’s redirecting me, something good will come of this.”
-Dr. Bernie Siegel

Dr. Bernie Siegel attended medical school at Cornell University Medical College and completed his surgical training at Yale New Haven Hospital, West Haven Veteran’s Hospital, and the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.
In 1978, Dr. Siegel started the Exceptional Cancer Patients support group utilizing patients’ drawings, dreams, images, and feelings to facilitate personal lifestyle changes and empower his patients to discover their own healing potential.
He retired from practice as an assistant clinical professor of general and pediatric surgery at Yale in 1989 and shifted his efforts to helping patients and their caregivers.

Dr. Siegel is the author of over thirty books and in my opinion, his book Love, Medicine and Miracles: Lessons Learned about Self-Healing from a Surgeon’s Experience with Exceptional Patients is a must-read for cancer patients and practitioners.

Dr. Siegel is a brilliant and passionate physician. It was truly an honor to interview him. I know you’ll love this one, enjoy!

“Embrace each challenge in your life as an opportunity for self-transformation.” -Dr. Bernie Siegel
