dr maggie garcia

“I enjoy providing patients with a custom, multimodal and stepwise approach to reclaiming their quality of life. I take pride in my ability to intently listen and deliver compassionate care to my patients as they will always have an active role in the treatment process with me. The most fulfilling aspect of pain management for me is that I am able to treat not only the physical, but the mental and emotional aspects of pain as well. ”

Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, Dr. Garcia received her Medical Degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago before completing an anesthesiology residency at Northwestern University and a fellowship in pain medicine at Rush University. She is very excited to join the team at Jax Spine & Pain Centers and to call Florida her new permanent home after enduring years of arduous winters.
