Primary Care

UF Health primary care centers at Jacksonville 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. We also offer primary care services in St. Marys, Georgia.

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. Online appointments are also available through our UF Health Virtual Visit program.

Because we are affiliated with the University of Florida, patients have access to all of the benefits of an academic health center, including advanced medical treatment from UF cardiologists, neurologists, rheumatologists and orthopaedic surgeons, as well as the latest in cutting-edge research.
