In memory and tribute to Dr. Edward Alan Mizrahi, Founder
Dr. Edward Mizrahi
August 24, 1945 – June 28, 2018
He was born in Tyler, Texas and raised in Jacksonville, Florida where he was an Eagle Scout. He graduated from Landon high school, earned a B.S. degree from the University of Pennsylvania Wharton School of Finance, and then received his medical degree at the University of Florida. He also earned an accounting degree while in medical school and proceeded to the Medical College of Georgia where he completed his medical residency training. He then completed his allergy & immunology fellowship at the renowned National Jewish Hospital & Research Center in Denver, Colorado.
This is a phrase that Dr. Mizrahi learned from one of his mentors many years ago while he was a young physician in training. It was truly one of his favorite quotes and he never failed to impress it upon all his employees throughout his career.
Dr. Mizrahi was a practicing allergist/immunologist in the Jacksonville area for 40 years and the founding partner of our practice, Allergy & Asthma Specialists of North Florida. He was a local pioneer in the field of allergy and immunology. He was well-respected among his peers and known for his meticulous and thorough nature. His sense of humor was unique, and he was never afraid to let his opinions be heard. Dr. Mizrahi was beloved by his employees, past and present. He was not only an admired colleague but a wonderful mentor and a dear friend.
Above all, Dr. Mizrahi’s knowledge and skills as an experienced physician helped improve the lives of thousands of patients, both young and old, suffering from allergies and asthma over the past four decades. When his retirement was announced, our office was inundated with dozens of cards, letters, and kind notes from his patients which is a genuine testament to his enduring commitment to his patients.
First the patient. Second the patient. Third the patient!
This simple yet powerful adage epitomizes Dr. Mizrahi’s dedication to his patients and will continue to resonate throughout our practice for years to come. While Dr. Mizrahi is no longer with us, his memory and imprint will live forever at Allergy & Asthma Specialists of North Florida.
