Jeremy Coleman, M.D., is a native of Yulee. As a former athlete who experienced numerous injuries, Dr. Coleman’s love for sports and wellness persisted well after his playing days ended. This experience, in addition to his love for science and improving the health and lives of others, spawned his interest in sports medicine. He earned his degrees at Morehouse College and Duke University School of Medicine. During family medicine training at Louisiana State University, he covered a myriad of athletic events, such as high school sports and professional wrestling. He was also selected as the Resident of the Year. He then served as a team physician at the University of Alabama as a sports medicine fellow with Dr. James Robinson. Dr. Coleman has numerous peer-reviewed publications and has presented sports-medicine topics at local and national conferences.
Most importantly, his love for his family and community led him back home. Currently, he is the medical director at UF Health Family Medicine – Yulee and UF Health Family Medicine and Pediatrics – St. Marys. Dr. Coleman is also team physician for Yulee and West Nassau High Schools, and a physician at the Nassau County correctional facility. He is a devoted husband to his best friend and wife, Shalanda Coleman, and a loving father to his three daughters.
