Dr. Ebert relocated to Hernando County and established an internal medicine practice in Brooksville after completing his residency in internal medicine at New York Medical Center – Presbyterian Queens.
A Florida native, he attended Asbury University in Wilmore, Kentucky, where he completed his pre-medical education. He completed his medical school training at Autonomous University of Guadalajara School of Medicine and was accepted and completed his Fifth Pathway at the renowned Albert Einstein College of Medicine at Bronx Lebanon Hospital in New York.
Dr. Ebert has subsequently practiced internal medicine, hospital medicine and geriatrics, which is his subspecialty, for more than 30 years. He has participated in many medical organizations and served as Chief of Medicine at Oak Hill Hospital and president of the Hernando County Medical Society. In addition, he has been a member of medical committees at various hospitals over the years. He has worked with medical students at the University of South Florida and participated in a yearly mission trip overseas as one of the supervising physicians.
In 2010 Dr. Ebert was recognized by Oak Hill Hospital as its Frist Physician of the Year award winner. The Frist Humanitarian Award honors outstanding individuals for humanitarian and volunteer services. Named in honor of the late Dr. Thomas F. Frist, Sr., founder of HCA and renowned humanitarian, this award recognizes a physician who best epitomizes Dr. Thomas Frist’s commitment to the communities in which we serve.
Dr. Ebert enjoys physical fitness, biking, fishing, running, swimming, flying and especially Bible study. He is a two-time Iron Man competitor and he has combined his passion for physical fitness with his desire to support his local community. He presently demonstrated his commitment by competing in the 3,000+ mile Race Across America, a bicycle race that is more challenging than the Tour de France. Dr. Ebert spent eight consecutive days riding his bicycle from one side of our nation to the other, stopping to sleep for only three hours at a time. His goal, along with three other team mates, in finishing the race was to raise money for macular degeneration research. He was able to raise $30,000. In addition, Dr. Ebert has participated in medical mission trips since high school. For many years he utilized his expertise as a physician to continue missions.
