Our Physicians

We’ve loved every minute of our journey

Gloriosa Antiporda,MD

Licensed in the state of Florida

University of the East College of Medicine, Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center, Philippines

Internship and Residency, Catholic Medical Centers of Brooklyn and Queens

Over twenty years of successful private practice.

Her journey as a physician has spanned many locations, and has exposed her to

every type of patient imaginable. After her residency, she

chose Jacksonville as her home. Her various duties as an internist have

provided her the privilege of treating a wide range of patients, from indigent

and inmates to the Mayor and Sheriff.

When people ask her what her specialty is, she says, ‘Compassion’.  Dr. Antiporda’s compassion is evident not only in her professional life, but also through her volunteer work.

She took a leave of absence from her medical career to sponsor an order of

Catholic nuns to get them established in Jacksonville, as well as volunteering

work at a clinic sponsored by St Luke’s Catholic Church and Jacksonville

Neighborhood Clinic some years ago.

She feels strongly about educating her patients on how lifestyle plays an

important role in preventing diseases. She counsels her patients on proper diet

and exercise, to eat anything in moderation, paying close attention to food

portions. She feels medical marijuana can play a significant role in overall patient health and wellness. 

Her philosophy of patient care? “I want to make people feel better, as well as

help them to feel good about themselves and the world around them”.

Kristin Scott, M.D.

Dr. Scott is board-certified in both neurology and hospice and palliative medicine. She completed neurology residency and hospice/palliative medicine fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida in 2015. She has published articles in the Journal of Palliative Medicine, Northeast Florida Medicine, and Neurology. In 2012, she received the Mayo Clinic Above and Beyond Award. Her volunteer work includes outreach clinics, a domestic violence shelter, and a medical mission trip in the Dominican Republic.

She earned her medical degree in 2010 from Indiana University, where she previously earned a

bachelor’s degree in psychology with highest distinction. From 2002-2006, she used her psychology degree to serve people with developmental disabilities by assisting them in the acquisition and refining of behavioral, practical, and social skills so that they were able to participate more fully in the community.

Prior to joining Releafe Now, Dr. Scott spent 5 years caring for terminally ill hospice and palliative care patients in our community. In her roles as associate medical director for Community Hospice and Haven Hospice, she empowered patients to maximize their quality of life by minimizing their symptom burdens. She also taught physicians gaining specialty expertise in the field of Hospice and Palliative Medicine (HPM) in her role as Program Director for the HPM Fellowship at University of Central Florida from 2021-2022.

Dr. Scott is both professionally and personally familiar with the havoc wreaked by serious illness and its treatment. She is a 4-time cancer survivor with a rare genetic disease called Li-Fraumeni syndrome. She is grateful to be cancer-free currently and also for the excellent symptom management treatments she has received throughout the course of her treatments. She is excited to share with Releafe Now patients her expertise acquired both as a physician and as a patient to help others improve their quality of life.
