Dr. Steven Eisenberg – Love Is The Strongest Medicine

My first interview of 2022 is with the incomparable Dr. Steven Eisenberg.

Dr. Steven attended medical school at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed his medical oncology and hematology fellowship at Georgetown University Medical Center. He’s triple-board certified in Internal Medicine, Medical Oncology, and Hematology and sees patients at a private practice called cCARE in San Diego, California.

Dr. Steven is also known as “the singing oncologist” and is the host of The Dr. Steven Show. He’s a married father of three and author of Love is the Strongest Medicine: Notes from a Cancer Doctor on Connection, Creativity, and Compassion.

Dr. Steven and I had a chance meeting at midnight at a health conference many years ago. I’ve wanted to interview him ever since and we finally made it happen. Dr. Steven Eisenberg is an incredible human and physician. You’re gonna love him.
