“In today's rushed, impersonal and clinical medical environment, Dr. Baxley provides a level of care that is refreshingly real and genuine. He understands that when you are sick, you need access to your doctor. It doesn't get much more real than that!” — Brett F.

About The Practice

Rick Baxley, M.D. opened his family practice in 1988 in Orlando’s College Park neighborhood. Since then, it has become a medical home for people of all ages and medical conditions, providing comprehensive primary care and integrated health care services.

The cornerstone of Dr. Baxley’s practice is an ongoing, personal relationship with his patients that emphasizes preventative care, health maintenance and executive physicals in addition to acute care. The detailed medical history that develops from these long-term relationships gives Dr. Baxley the knowledge to better recommend the most appropriate wellness options and treatments.

At College Park Family Practice, we try to keep the billing part of your visit as simple as possible. We accept payment by cash, check, credit card, or Health Savings Account payment for the entire amount at the time of service. Most of our patients have some type of health insurance, but have chosen to see Dr. Baxley, as an ‘out-of-network’ provider. This means they use the ‘out-of-network’ benefits included in their plan, usually with the requirement they meet a deductible amount first and then are reimbursed for a percentage of the bill afterwards. (Please refer to your insurance card for the number to call and find out about your particular ‘out of network’ benefits.) At the end of each visit, you will be given everything needed to file with your insurance plan or, for your convenience, we have made provision with an independent billing contractor to file your claim for a fee.

The professionals who make up Dr. Baxley’s staff are an extension of the extraordinary care he delivers and their goal is to provide an exceptional office experience with the excellent customer service you expect and deserve. Because of the dedication of the staff, our patients enjoy little or no waiting room times, same day sick visits and timely return of phone calls. They take pride in the quality of care provided by this office and find great joy in helping care for all of their patients.

RICK BAXLEY, M.D., M.P.H.

Dr. Baxley is a native of St. Augustine, Florida and a graduate of the University of Florida. He earned his Medical Degree from the University of Miami School of Medicine as well as a Masters in Public Health degree from Loma Linda University in California.

The compassion he shows for his patients also is reflected in his dedication to community service. In 1994, President Bill Clinton honored Dr. Baxley in a Rose Garden ceremony with the President’s Volunteer Action Award from the National Points of Light Foundation for his work with the Health Care Center for the Homeless. In 1999, the Florida Academy of Family Physicians named him “Florida Family Physician of the Year.”

Outside the office, Dr. Baxley enjoys spending time with his wife Barbara (an early childhood educator) and his two daughters, working on his boat, fishing and listening to good rock and roll music. He also remains an avid University of Florida fan; even to the point of bestowing the name “Gator” on his family’s beloved German Shepherd.
