We’ve expanded — to Medical City.
UCF Health, the College of Medicine physician practice, opened its second location March 16 at 9975 Tavistock Lakes Blvd., Orlando, in the heart of Medical City.
“We are thrilled to expand our multispecialty practice to serve more people across our community,” said Dr. Deborah German, UCF vice president for medical affairs and dean of the medical school. “We are excited to be bringing needed out-patient care to our Lake Nona neighbors.”
UCF Health provides primary and specialty care under one roof. All physicians are faculty members at the UCF College of Medicine who care for patients under the motto of, “We practice what we teach.”
The first doctors at the new location are internal medicine specialist Dr. Anteneh Addisu, a physician-scientist who holds both an M.D. and a Ph.D. in molecular science, and Dr. Shazia Bég, who is board certified in internal medicine and rheumatology and cares for patients with diseases of the joints, muscles and bones, including arthritis and lupus. The College of Medicine will be adding dermatology and other additional specialties soon.
UCF Health’s first location opened in November 2011 at University and Quadrangle Boulevards, just two blocks from the main UCF campus. It was previously called UCF Pegasus Health.
