Billy Goldberg, M.D.
- Host

Dr. Billy Goldberg is a 20-year emergency medicine physician and two-time New York Times bestselling author. He currently practices clinically in the emergency rooms at Bellevue Hospital Center and the New York University Langone Medical Center in New York City. He has performed research and published on topics including trauma, cervical spine injury, pulmonary embolism and resident education. 

Known for examining the tough, and often weird, questions of medicine, Dr. Goldberg published “Why Do Men Have Nipples? Hundreds of Questions You’d Only Ask a Doctor after Your Third Martini” with comic-novelist Mark Leyner. The book became a bestseller, and its hilarious, yet stealthily informative tone set the stage for upwave’s YouTube original series “Why Do Men Have Nipples?” that Dr. Billy hosts.
