Growing up in a professional family, Dr. John Horowitzsays it was clear his career path would be in a service profession.
“I didn’t always know I wanted a career in medicine but being a dentist like my father didn’t appeal to me,” Dr Horowitz says. “I had a few choices for medical school but chose Temple because of the legacy component since my father went there for dental school. There was a sense of family pride about Temple, and I knew it would be an excellent choice for medical school.”
After graduation, Dr. Horowitz stayed at Temple for his surgical residency. He later completed a vascular surgery fellowship at Ohio State and then moved to Florida to join a vascular surgery practice.
“When I arrived in Florida, I was immediately busy and the excellent clinical training I received at Temple was essential to my success,” Dr. Horowitz shares. “The overwhelming theme at Temple is one of little ego, getting the work done, and being part of a team. It’s an environment of encouragement in which senior residents take younger residents under their wing, bring them along, and help them develop.”
After eight years in group practice, Dr. Horowitz decided to strike out on his own.
“The principles of success were instilled in me early on at Temple,” Dr. Horowitz recalls. “I had all the character traits and training I needed to be successful.”
Today, Dr. Horowitz owns the Central Florida Vein and Vascular Center, a well established, comprehensive facility that is widely recognized for its care.
“We’ve got three locations and 36 employees,” Dr. Horowitz says. “Owning the practice satisfies my desire to be a good clinical surgeon and an entrepreneur.”
“I haven’t been back to Temple in 20 years, but I could talk about it forever,” adds Dr. Horowitz.
