About

Bio

I am a 42 year old ObGyn physician in private practice for 12 years. I did my ObGyn residency at the University of Florida in Gainesville, and then came back to my home town to open my practice. I have delivered thousands of babies and cared for thousands of women in my community. I am honored to be able to provide them with the excellent, personalized care that they each deserve. I am the proud mother of 8 year old identical twin boys. I am also a patient with early onset Parkinson's disease. I have an extensive knowledge base about this disease process, and I serve in many positions advocating for patients with this devastating condition. I am the Founder of the Nicole Jarvis MD Parkinson's Research Foundation, and I serve on the Patient Council of the Michael J. Fox Foundation.
