Dr. Bernie Siegel
Thank God for Living and Learning
Dr. Bernie Siegel, who prefers to be called Bernie, not Dr. Siegel, speaks in stories. Listen as Bernie shares his stories, presented in vivid tales about finding the ‘gift’ in every life challenge and ultimately finding the best in the worst situation. Bernie’s will to live joyously in the face of adversity, mixed with his insistence on seeing the lessons in ‘life-threatening’ illnesses, will lift your spirit. The way he still communicates with his deceased wife, his Guardian Angel, and with God will make you smile.

Bernie was born in Brooklyn, New York. He attended Colgate University and Cornell University Medical College. He holds membership in two scholastic honor societies, Phi Beta Kappa and Alpha Omega Alpha and graduated with honors. His surgical training took place at Yale New Haven Hospital, West Haven Veteran’s Hospital and the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. He retired from practice as an assistant clinical professor of surgery at Yale of general and pediatric surgery in 1989 to speak to patients and their caregivers.
He lives in a suburb of New Haven, Connecticut. He and his wife and coworker Bobbi had five children and eight grandchildren. Bernie and Bobbie co-authored their children, books, and articles. Their home, with its many children, pets and interests resembled a cross between a family art gallery, museum, zoo, and automobile repair shop. It still resembles these things, although the children are trying to improve their appearance in order to avoid embarrassment. Bobbie died on January 18, 2018.
In 1986 his first book, Love, Medicine & Miracles was published. This event redirected his life. In 1989, Peace, Love & Healing and in 1993, How To Live Between Office Visits followed.
Bernie’s realization that we all need help dealing with the difficulties of life, not just the physical ones, led to Bernie writing his fourth book in 1998, Prescriptions for Living. It helps people to become aware of the eternal truths and wisdom of the sages through Bernie’s stories and insights rather than wait for a personal disaster.
He wants to help people fix their lives before they are broken, and thus not have to become strong at the broken places.
