Some kind words from our raving fans

  • Dr. McClelland has been an excellent doctor for us. She listens, asks questions and assesses the situation in a timely manner. Thank God these doctors are calm in all of our panic situations. I feel I can trust this group of doctors with my kids and know that they do their best given the difficult health issues that arise. Any doctor can treat your kid but not everyone has the special caregiver approach that Jacksonville Pediatrics has. Thanks for your help when we need it!

  • I love each and every one of the doctors in this practice! The nurses are kind and gentle when administering shots. The office staff is very friendly and accommodating in scheduling both well and sick child visits. My son started to see Dr. Stanley in 2013 and now regularly sees Dr. Cantville. I have had to have sick child visits with each doctor and they are each fabulous! They always take the time to answer all of my questions and alleviate any concerns I have. I'd recommend them 100% with no reservation or hesitation.

  • Best Pediatricians in Jacksonville! We've been going here for many years and have always been happy. All the doctors and nursers are so kind and caring. I've always been able to get same day appointments when my son has been sick and never wait very long in the waiting room. I highly recommend you check them out if you're searching for a new pediatrician!

  • We have been coming here since Cole (almost 18) and Claire (12) were born and it feels like home. Most of the staff is the same. Christie always answers my calls and many questions. Love and miss Dr. Stanley but try to schedule when he is here. All the doctors have seen the kids at some point over the years and always take great care of us. They even spend a little time talking on a personal level with the kids. I am so glad that God lead us here all those years ago. Wouldn't want to be anywhere else. Thanks for caring for all the kids.

  • We have been going here for 8 years. My kids love Dr. Thornton! All of the doctors are patient and make the kids feel super comfortable! The staff is also great and welcoming upon walking in. I have always been able to bring my child same day when we had a sickness. We never have to wait long for our appointments. I love being able to call the nurse on duty and get my questions answered right away. I like that the newborns are brought in right after lunch when no other children are present. I love that my girls had their ears pierced in a professional environment. Before I even chose this practice, Dr. Thornton met with me while I was pregnant to introduce their office and what to expect with a newborn. I highly recommend this practice.
