George Mayzell, MD, MBA
Physician Coach and Speaker
Many doctors become doctors not because they want to run or manage a practice, but because they want to help and treat people. Dr. George Mayzell is different. He has spent the majority of his professional career between two worlds: one focused on care delivery as a physician, and another focused on effective management as an administrator. Dr. Mayzell’s clinical knowledge is matched only by his business acumen.
Dr. Mayzell has a passion for helping healthcare leaders, staff and physicians restore purpose and joy to their work. At the Healthcare Experience Foundation, Dr. Mayzell is working to innovate physician leadership development, build resilient and engaged physicians and providers, strengthen relationships between administration and medical staff, and develop patient-centered competencies.
As a physician, chief medical officer, senior leader, and now coach, Dr. Mayzell draws upon his extensive experience to help organizations create meaningful improvements that matter.
Before joining the Healthcare Experience Foundation team, Dr. Mayzell served in a variety of notable capacities over the years.

In addition to more than 10 years of practice experience, Dr. Mayzell has dedicated more than 10 years of his life working in senior leadership positions for the University of Florida and Shands Hospital, and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida. He has held positions on the c-suite, as medical director and has worked through complexities such as care management redesign, clinical variation, clinical integration and physician leadership.
Dr. Mayzell has co-authored several books including “Leveraging Lean in Healthcare” and “Physician Alignment, as well as “Population Health”.
Dr. Mayzell is a board certified internist and geriatrician, having received his medical degree from The Rutgers News Jersey Medical School, and his MBA from Jacksonville University.
