Brandon Ebanks, MPH, PA- C played a vital role at Vitale ENT as one of our key providers, servicing patients throughout the Tampa Bay area. Brandon graduated from Nova Southeastern University in 2015, with a Master of Medical Science degree. He received his Bachelor’s of Science degree in Biology from Florida State University and a Master’s degree in Public Health with a focus on Global Communicable Diseases.

Brandon found the ability to interact with patients and help guide them through their health care to be the most rewarding part of practicing medicine. Brandon was always dedicated to making sure his patients’ needs were addressed and took the extra time to make sure all their concerns were addressed before leaving the office. He received his education and training in various specialties and brought that wealth of knowledge with him into the examination room so that he could help care for the patient’s ENT needs, as well as any other whole body concerns they may have. Brandon was a member of the American Association of Physician Assistants and received his certification from the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.

Brandon’s hobbies included building models, cycling, video games, playing soccer, learning survival skills, home repairs, tinkering with things to figure out how they worked, and cooking. He was born in Brooklyn, New York and raised in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. He knew the lines to the movie Grease word-for-word and enjoyed spending time with his kids. They would go to Disney’s Not So Scary Halloween every year in costume.

Brandon lost his battle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in May of 2019. He fought so hard and will be greatly missed by so many. Brandon leaves behind four beautiful boys, a lovely wife, his parents, and siblings.

Brandon Ebanks, MPH, PA- C will forever remain in our hearts as a vital member of the Vitale ENT family.
