UF&Shands Jacksonville primary care centers offer services for patients during
every stage of life, from pediatrics to geriatrics.
University of Florida College of Medicine-Jacksonville physicians work with
physician assistants and advanced registered nurse practitioners in primary care
centers in Duval, Clay, Nassau and Baker counties.
Patient care is our top priority, so our offices offer appointments within 24 hours.
Services in many of our centers include annual checkups, well-baby visits, sports
physicals and disease prevention, as well as management of chronic medical conditions
such as high blood pressure, diabetes and depression.
Because we are affiliated with the UF Health Science
Center Jacksonville, patients have access to all of the benefits of an academic
health center, including advanced medical treatment from UF specialists such as
orthopedics, and the latest in cutting-edge research.

NCQA describes the Patient-Centered Medical Home as a model for care provided by
physician practices that seek to strengthen the physician-patient relationship.
