Pinsky attended Polytechnic School and after matriculating, went to Amherst College where he studied biology. After graduating in 1980, he attended the University Of Southern California School Of Medicine to get an M.D. He served at the USC County Hospital and then later became the chief resident at Huntington Memorial Hospital. Eventually, he left this work to go into private practice.

Drew’s radio work started in 1984 when he began appearing in a segment of KROQ-FM called “Ask a Surgeon”. Soon it combined with another show called “Loveline”, of which Pinksy became a co-host. The show went national in 1995 and would then have a television version the following year – his net worth started to grow as quickly as his popularity.

In 2007 he started another radio talk show called “Dr. Drew Live”, however, it only lasted for a year. Eight years later, he would launch a new weekday program called “Dr. Drew Midday Live with Mike Catherwood”. His longest running show “Loveline” then ended its run in April 2016.
For his television work, Drew’s first appearance on a television show was as a contestant in an episode of “Wheel of Fortune”. In 2000, he served as a health and human relations expert in the first season of “Big Brother”, and he’s hosted numerous shows with relatively shorter runs including “Strictly Sex with Dr. Drew” and “Strictly Dr. Drew”.

In 2008, he starred in the reality show “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew” which featured the doctor as the resident medical expert at Pasadena Recovery Center. The show eventually led to a spinoff – “Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew” – and the shows helped increase his net worth further. Pinsky has also appeared as a guest on numerous programs. He’s also acted in several shows including “Family Guy” and “Dawson’s Creek”. One of his latest shows was “Dr. Drew on Call” which ended its run last August 2016.

Pinsky’s also been consulted on the deaths of various celebrities such as Michael Jackson and Heath Ledger.

Aside from these media appearances, Pinsky co-founded the internet website Dr Drew.com, however the website was sold after running out of funds. He also authored the book “Cracked: Putting Broken Lives Together Again” which recounts some of his experiences. He’s been invited as a guest speaker at numerous colleges, and has also appeared in a PETA ad campaign promoting the neutering of pets.

For his personal life, it is known that Pinksy married Susan Sailer in 1991 and they have triplets. He is very interested in fitness and runs as well as weight training regularly. He also sings opera, and travels a lot. He was previously diagnosed with prostate cancer though he recovered from it. He’s also a non-observant Jew, meaning that he has abandoned most of their practices.

1If you're doing 20% success, you're really doing very well with a group of addicts, and here we have a group that are mostly unmotivated for treatment; they kind of want to get paid, they want to get on TV; and we're ending up with about half of them really doing very well and nearly all of them, when they finish treatment, start out resistant. When they get question from the press, "don't you feel exploited," they're like "are you kidding, I went in there to exploit those guys, I wanted to get paid, I wanted to screw up their treatment process," and they ended up engaging in treatment and wanting to be an inspiration to other people.
