Edward J. Lefeber, Retired Physician and Colonel, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in internal medicine.
Dr. Lefeber grew up around the medical profession, as his father was a doctor, and his mother was a nurse. He longed to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a doctor, which prompted him to attend the University of the South. There, he earned a Bachelor of Arts in 1962. Several years later, he graduated from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston with an MD. He then completed an internship at the District of Columbia General Hospital and then a residency at Georgetown University Hospital, both in internal medicine. Prior to beginning his professional endeavors, he completed his education with his role as chief resident at the William Beaumont Army Medical Center.
After becoming certified in internal medicine and licensed to practice in the state of Texas, Dr. Lefeber proceeded to loan his expertise to several different hospitals. From 1982 until 1995, he was the chief of general internal medicine at the Veteran Affairs Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona. He later worked in similar roles at the University of Phoenix Medical Center and the University Hospital in San Antonio. Prior to retiring as a general internist in 2014, he was a consultant with the National Institute of Medicine in Geriatrics and Internal Medicine.
In light of Dr. Lefeber’s professional accomplishments, he is featured in numerous editions of Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in Medicine and Healthcare, Who’s Who in Science and Engineering, Who’s Who in the South and Southwest, and Who’s Who in the World. In 2018, he became a recipient of the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award.
