RE: The Passing of Bryan Kagan, DPM



I first got to know Bryan when he joined the American Society of Forensic Podiatry (ASFP) a number of years ago. He got involved in the forensic field immediately in research, teaching, and lecturing widely on the subject of pedal evidence. He established a forensic podiatry club at NYCPM and established the first undergraduate courses on forensic podiatry at NYCPM. He established himself as a leading figure and pioneer in the field of forensic podiatry.


 


He served as a member of the Board of Directors of the ASFP and most recently as Secretary-Treasurer for a number of years. With all his academic and professional accomplishments acknowledged what's most important with his passing is his loss as a gentleman and man of great integrity. Rest in Peace my friend.

A great loss for his family and the profession. A true gentleman and man of integrity. May he rest in peace.


 


Arthur E. Helfand, DPM


 


I heard the news of Ed's passing with mixed feelings. He had a very difficult last few months and finally he is at peace. Ed was responsible for elevating our profession to new heights. Without his efforts, it would have been decades before we were granted hospital privileges and equality with other members of the medical community. I will always remember the many good times we had together. I will miss his humor, his smile, his kindness, and his graciousness. Rest in peace, my friend.

RE: The Passing of Earl R. Horowitz, DPM


 


I knew Earl since my graduation in 1968. What a great man. What a great loss for all of us.


 


Mark Feldman, DPM 


 


I just saw that Earl passed. Not only a monumental podiatrist but a man. I had the pleasure of working with him in his podiatry life. I respected him throughout my involvement in podiatry, from his everyday uniqueness to his leadership when podiatry needed him. The profession and his input will be greatly missed. What a shock. Thanks to him for being one of the greatest. Our prayers are with his family.

RE: The Passing of Earl R. Horowitz, DPM


 


I really got to know Boots this year. He was among other things, the oldest podiatrist in the world to start using laser therapy. I talked with Boots almost every week during the past year. Boots was a scholar and a gentleman, a man who had a passion to learn and grow his practice even at 87. 


 


In a very short period of time, I grew to love Boots and my respect for him grew more every day. His love for podiatry and his patients was beyond something I can explain. I was told that God took him from us on his way home FROM his office. An 87-year-old podiatrist on his way home from treating his patients, who loved him as well. Thank you Boots for being my friend.

RE: The Passing of Earl R. Horowitz, DPM


 


I am saddened to hear about the passing of Earl “Boots” Horowitz. He was a tremendous asset to podiatrists and patients with his innovations and teachings with limb salvage using the circulator boot and other pioneering treatment protocols. He was passionate about podiatry and laid the foundation for thousands of podiatrists to achieve board certification. 


 


I was involved with him to promote MIS board certification at our AMIFAS meeting in New Orleans. He got a standing ovation from our group when he spoke passionately about how MIS surgery can be life-changing for patients, especially for geriatric and diabetic patients.

I was so disappointed and saddened to learn of Earl’s passing. He really had a friendly and warm style and manner...he spoke well from the podium and commanded everyone’s attention when he did so. He was very dedicated to our profession  and worked hard to continue to bring new ideas into focus and consideration. He is a big loss. He was a tireless fighter for all of us.

What a sad way to end the year. Dr. Earl R Horowitz was a "mensch" and true gentleman who spent his years advancing the profession, We were students during the same period at Temple. His gentle ways and integrity were something that we can all strive to emulate. My deepest sympathy to his wife and family. He will be remembered and may his soul rest in peace.

RE: The Passing of Earl R. Horowitz, DPM


 


I am saddened to learn of the untimely passing of one of the great personages in podiatry, Earl “Boots” Horowitz, DPM. I initially met Earl when I did an externship in his office in 1976. He was as warm and generous a teacher as I ever encountered and his enthusiasm and drive to improve the practice of podiatry was as absolutely relentless as his competitiveness on the tennis court. 


 


Boots always had the latest diagnostic or surgical gadget in his office, often an early prototype, which he would persistently promote. I will forever treasure those moments sitting courtside under the Jacksonville sun with a Moosehead Beer after being thoroughly thrashed by him on the court. The man was a winner who mentored a generation of podiatrists and should be enshrined in whatever Halls of Fame we have. My condolences to his family. RIP.

RE: The Passing of Earl R. Horowitz, DPM



It was a very sad day, both personally and professionally when I learned of the tragic loss of Earl Horowitz, President of the ABMSP since its inception, and a champion of podiatric certification. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. I first met "Boots" several years ago when we first began our discussions about minimally invasive foot and ankle certification under the umbrella of the ABMSP. 



In recent years, we often lectured together and presented the value of board certification and the value of MIS surgery, especially for the elderly. I especially always enjoyed our talks about podiatric history and the numerous characters who have graced our wonderful profession in the past. He was a giant of our profession and his like will not soon be seen again. We at the academy and I personally send our heartfelt sympathy to the family and the many friends of Boots. Our seminars will not be the same without him.

I just learned of the traumatic passing of Earl “Boots” Horowitz, and I felt lucky and honored to have known him.  Boots was a lifelong fighter for our profession, a leader, an innovator, an educator, and a really nice man. Never was a SAM meeting in Florida a success until Boots shared his insight with the audience. There are many DPMs who truly made a difference and who will never be forgotten. Earl "Boots" Horowitz lived an incredible podiatric life, and I’m lucky to have called him a friend. Click here to read the transcript of his interview on Meet the Masters in 2011.

I was always very impressed with his charm, his brilliance, his amazing positive energy, his sense of humor, and his love of our profession. He was one of the finest, most knowledgeable, and most entertaining speakers I have ever heard at the podium. I was proud to call him a mentor and a friend. He gave it all he had for 60 years. We are all better off for having known him. I miss him already. My deepest condolences to his family. May he rest in peace.
