Maci McDermott, , M.D.

Maci McDermott M.D.

Dr McDermott has recently joined the practice at North Florida Pediatrics. From childhood she had a desire to care for others- especially children and animals- so becoming a pediatrician fell perfectly into place. She completed Medical school at Ross University School of Medicine and residency at T.C. Thompson Children’s Hospital in Chattanooga, TN. She enjoys all aspects of primary care and working with children of all ages, especially helping parents navigate the different stages of childhood and adolescence. She is especially passionate about newborn care/breastfeeding, weight management/healthy lifestyles, and preventive medicine. Outside of work she spends most of her time with her husband and playing with their 5 children. As a strong believer in parents as the first teachers she enjoys interactive play, reading, music, simple art projects and outdoor play with them. Dr. McDermott also loves traveling (especially if there is a beach involved!), working in her yard/garden and practicing yoga. Although originally from the midwest, Dr. McDermott is so happy to be calling sunny Florida home.

Dr. McDermott is truly amazing! Very sweet and kind! As a first time mom who went through postpartum depression, she listened to me and my concerns, and made me feel more at ease with her advice. She always answers all of my questions and never rushes the appointment. I can tell that she really cares about my child and her we being. I’m so happy with my decision of choosing her as my daughters pediatrician! 💗☺️

We LOVE Dr. McDermott! She has been with us since she first came to Tallahassee and took the time to go over things with us when I was pregnant. Ever since she has provided top notch medical care. She goes above & beyond and we are so grateful for her!

She's warm and welcoming, and direct and kind at the same time.

From day 1 we have loved her. Her compassion and dedication to her patients is worth noting. She has been by our families side thru some serious health issues, holding our hands the entire way and going out of her way to accommodate us. So glad she came into our lives. She is truly a blessing.

Dr. McDermott is hands down the absolute best physician in Tallahassee. She makes each appointment a personal experience and I not only have a Dr for my children, I consider her a friend. I love that she believes in healthy lifestyles and alternative medicines versus prescription medications (unless absolutely needed). I would recommend Dr. M to everyone in the Tallahassee area. #BESTDREVER

My Daughter was and does have multiple health issues and concerns. Maci McDermott seen us, got right on it and started sending her to specialist and doing everything possible to get her the care she needed and testing on our very first visit. She listened , was concerned, and was active right away in my Daughters health and well being.
