Matthew Modansky, MD Biography and Info
Matthew Modansky, MD, first became interested in medicine after serving as a volunteer student trainer for his high school football team. He has maintained a love of medicine ever since, having served as an assistant medical director for the annual Gate River Run, and as the chairman of the Mayor’s Council on Fitness and Well-being. His areas of expertise include:
- Acute Illness and Injury (non-automotive)
- Sports Medicine
- Preventive Care
- High Blood Pressure
- High Cholesterol
I am proud to call the First Coast my home, after living and traveling to various locations, including Africa, Iceland, Tibet and the Amazon. I have spent my career working in both the Emergency department and in Primary Care.
My philosophy of medicine is that “knowledge is key.” I believe listening, understanding, and teaching are the cornerstones of this approach. Providing an atmosphere for comfortable open dialog gives us the strongest position to achieve success in preventive care and illness.
I enjoy being part of the community in which I work and live. Outside of the office, you may find me at health fairs, lectures, and sports activities. My family and I enjoy spending time together at the beach, camping, fishing, and biking. In my downtime you can find me in front of a piano or behind a camera lens.
