MEHDI M. MOEZI, MD, FACP

BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Mehdi Moezi is board-certified in medical oncology, hematology, and internal medicine, and practices at our Fleming Island location. Originally from Iran, Dr. Moezi earned his Doctor of Medicine from the University of Tehran before completing his residency and fellowship programs in New York. He began his practice in 1990 at SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn New York, where he spent 10 years researching with some of the world’s leaders in lymphoma and myeloma. Dr. Moezi and his family settled in North Florida in 2001, when he began practicing at CSNF.

As the Chair of the CSNF’s Clinical Research Committee, Dr. Moezi understands and appreciates the way clinical research and trials have changed the way cancer is diagnosed, understood, and treated – especially within the last decade. “I have participated in many clinical trials, and the outcome of some of this research has changed the standard of care for treating malignancies,” he says. Dr. Moezi has also had the privilege of actively participating in the design of clinical trials that help find new treatment options for cancer patients.

Aside from the clinical research program, Dr. Moezi enjoys the “teamwork, excellent co-workers, and comprehensive care” that serve as the foundation of CSNF.

When not in the office, Dr. Moezi enjoys spending time with his wife and two grown children, and enjoys performance arts, music, reading, traveling, skiing, tennis, and museums.
