I am an author, speaker, blogger and former surgeon who helps people who are always sick or tired to once again reclaim their health and energy. For the past 13 years in private practice and 9 years in academia, I have helped thousands of men and women breathe better, sleep better, and live more fulfilling lives. My passion and mission is to empower people to overcome their sleep-related breathing problems, which most people don’t realize is the real reason for many of their common medical ailments. I left the field of medicine in 2021 to focus all my energy on educating the general public on my mission through doctorstevenpark.com and Health Wise Media, LLC.
I am a native of New York City and received my undergraduate degree from The Johns Hopkins University and my medical degree from Columbia University’s College of Physicians & Surgeons. My otolaryngology residency training was completed at Albert Einstein/Montefiore.
- Fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery
- Member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine
- Board-certified in Otolaryngology (ear, nose, throat) – Head & Neck Surgery
- Board-certified in Sleep Medicine
- Former Assistant Professor of Otorhinolaryngology, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY
- Was actively involved in teaching residents and other surgeons in cutting-edge surgical techniques.
I practiced integrative medicine and surgery, with a firm belief that other models of health and disease can complement traditional, Western medicine. I have produced teleseminars and podcasts with experts not only related to obstructive sleep apnea, but also professionals in other areas—including an acupuncturist, dietician, anthropologist, and a neuro-linguistic programming and hypnosis expert in the past. I firmly believe that one must treat the whole person first, including addressing his or her diet, lifestyle, stresses and emotional states, rather than focusing on one simple symptom or area of the body.
I’m also a published author of the Amazon Best-selling book, Sleep, Interrupted: A physician reveals the #1 reason why so many of us are sick and tired. It was endorsed by numerous New York Times best-selling authors such as Dr. Christiane Northrup, Dr. Dean Ornish, and Mary Shomon.
In my spare time, I love to cook Latin food and bake. I’m also an avid runner. I’m happily married to my wife Kathy for almost 25 years, and we have 3 three sons.
