Dr. Steven Rosenberg, DPM
Dr. Rosenberg chose podiatry because he saw it as being an “internist for the foot.” He was born in Atlantic City, New Jersey, but decided to learn about the West by attending the University of Arizona for his undergraduate work. He moved to San Francisco where he earned his podiatric degrees from California College of Podiatric Medicine. He thought he’d try returning to the East when he did his surgical residency at St. Mary’s Hospital in Philadelphia, but soon came...
Dr. LeRoy Perry Jr, DC

Going to medical school, he inadvertently walked into the wrong operating room and saw a white glistening membrane in the very center of the brain. He was hooked. Instead of focusing on orthopedics, he became a neurosurgeon. Recently he realized he wanted to become a better integrative...

Awesome and informative podcast
Great to hear leading doctors speak about their passions and the journeys in their careers.
I met Lynda at an aquatic therapy conference in San Diego this past September and she was a great instructor. I immediately signed up for her email newsletter and when I saw she had a podcast was so excited! Loving the idea of this podcast and the behind the scenes content from doctors she is giving us.
