My name is Dr. Linda Ann Di Teodoro. I am from Staten Island, New York with a strong Italian American heritage.

After graduating from Wagner College with my registered nurse license, I entered medical school at St. George’s University. Following medical school, I relocated to Syracuse, New York for my internal medicine residency. My four years ended with the privilege of being a chief medical resident for Upstate University Hospital. My love for gastroenterology lead me to Jacksonville, Florida in 2004, where I commenced a gastroenterology fellowship at University of Florida. I then joined Mayo Clinic in 2007 to become a board certified transplant hepatologist. After Mayo Clinic, I joined the greatest gastroenterology practice, Borland Groover in 2008. I have board certifications in both gastroenterology and transplant hepatology.

Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville is the hospital I am assigned to. Being involved in the central hub of the Baptist Health system, I provide care to high complexity of patients. I am currently the chair of medicine of the department of medicine. I am involved in many committees such as: voting member of the CME committee, Pharmacy and Therapeutic committee and Women in Medicine.

Because of my family and personal plans, I travel to New York City many times per year. I am very close to my nieces and nephew. Both Jacksonville, Florida and New York City are my homes. The Assumption Catholic Church is my parish and place of worship. As an avid animal lover, I support The Humane Society and ASPCA. I am the biggest Jacksonville Jaguar football fan and attend all home games!

I enjoy spending time with family and friends. My recreational activities include cross training, running, yoga, movies and traveling. I am a very enthusiastic Gate River Run participant! Recently my niece and I visited Abruzzo Italy, which is The Di Teodoro family birthplace.
