Dr. Gino J. Sedillo, M.D.
It seems Dr. Gino Sedillo has been on the move his whole life. Literally, as a youngster and, as an adult, professionally.
“I had an interesting childhood, much in part due to my father,Arthur’s, profession,” said Dr. Sedillo, who was born in Albuquerque, N.M. A former Golden Gloves boxing champion and U.S. marine, Dr. Sedillo said his dad began his law enforcement career as a state patrolman and eventually became the first Hispanic agent in the Drug Enforcement Administration. “As such he was transferred to cover all of Central and South America. We relocated every two or three years on average, because of security issues and in an attempt to respond to the rapidly expanding illegal drug trade,” he said.
Jessica Levanti, PA-C
Jessica Levanti was born and raised in Sarasota and attended Riverview High School where she was first introduced to the Physician Assistant profession through an internship program there. Although assigned to work with an orthopedic surgeon, she was instead enamored with the position of Physician Assistant. To achieve her dream, she attended the University of Georgia and obtained her bachelor’s degree in Health Promotion, which gave her a foundation in preventative medicine and patient education. Next, she added a master’s degree in Medical Science through The University of South Florida College of Medicine prior to her Physician Assistant training.
The University of Florida’s PA program is the most competitive and prestigious PA school in the state, and Jessica was accepted into the program in 2016. She graduated in 2018 with Honors and completed specific rotations in Cardiology with USF Health and Cardiothoracic Surgery at UF Health Jacksonville. Jessica enjoyed volunteering at the UF Health Equal Access Clinic, providing medical care to uninsured patients. She was also part of the UF Medical Jeopardy Team and helped UF win its first state championship at the FAPA winter symposium.
