Aliza Epstein, MD

Dr. Aliza Epstein was born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Her passion for medicine started at an early age being positively influenced by her father who is a respected Oculofacial Plastic Surgeon in South Florida. She attended Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois where she majored in Psychology while pursuing pre-medical endeavors through her studies as well as clinical research. She traveled back to South Florida to attend the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, where she was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha, national medical honor society. While at the University of Miami, Dr. Epstein helped provide free vision screenings and eye care throughout South Florida through the Department of Community Service (DOCS) program, where she held multiple leadership positions.

Dr. Epstein received the prestigious John K. Robinson Grant, allowing her to publish multiple peer-reviewed articles and present at numerous national and international meetings during medical school. She completed her internal medicine internship at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital in New York City, and ophthalmology residency at the Kresge Eye Institute in Detroit, Michigan, where she was elected to be chief resident during her final year. She followed her passion for oculofacial plastic surgery, completing a two-year American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS) fellowship with TOC Eye and Face, where she performed thousands of surgeries. During that time, she also completed an American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS) fellowship focusing on facial cosmetic surgery. As a board-certified ophthalmologist, Dr. Epstein has published numerous peer-reviewed book chapters and articles in ophthalmology and oculofacial plastic surgery.
