Dr. Eisenberger did his residency in internal medicine at Montefiore Medical Center, where he served for a year as chief resident. He then completed his fellowship in Hematology/Oncology at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, where his academic focus was management of clotting disorders and hematologic malignancies. While a fellow at Columbia, the Department of Nursing recognized Dr. Eisenberger with its Physician of the Year award.
At the completion of fellowship training, Dr. Eisenberger worked as an attending physician at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center in Newark, New Jersey, and served on the staff of its state- and federally-funded regional Hemophilia Center. While at this position, Dr. Eisenberger helped launch the NIH-supported Central-Northern New Jersey Sickle Cell Network.
Dr. Eisenberger is actively involved in research on the prediction of thrombotic complications in women using hormonal therapies such as birth control, as well as the hematologic complications of vascular devices such as ECMO and ventricular assist devices. His clinical practice currently focuses on the diagnosis and management of bleeding and clotting disorders, particularly in unique populations such as pregnant women and critically ill hospitalized patients. He also has extensive experience with difficult-to-manage blood disorders including antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APLS), heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT), immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA), thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP), hemophagocytic syndrome (HLH) and anemia in individuals who have undergone bariatric surgery.
