Always Room for Hope – Dr. Bruce Eisendorf

Posted on Feb 15, 2012

Living life more fully and deeply is possible for everyone, says Bruce Eisendorf, M.D., a family medicine doctor at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation’s Santa Cruz main clinic. “Whether you have one day or 50 years more to live, have a life-threatening condition or are in intractable pain, there’s always room for improving the quality of one’s life. What’s most important is feeling a connection, some sense of peace and equanimity.”

Dr. Eisendorf has found that a person’s beliefs, state of mind and emotions have a strong impact on health. “I try to connect with people in this sense, always believing that there is hope to love, live and connect more deeply,” he says in this video, which is part of a series highlighting the diverse voices of PAMF physicians.
