Recently, the Jacksonville community lost a truly remarkable man, retired decorated Navy Commander, John Hunt, MD. He was an extraordinarily talented physician who served our community for more than 20 years. Dr. Hunt was a pain management and addiction medicine specialist who made it his mission to help as many people as possible throughout his career. He owned NexStep Integrated Pain Care prior to joining Coastal Spine and Pain Center. Dr. Hunt, a man who earned two Purple Hearts, saved thousands of patients from addiction and built a beautiful life with his wife Mary, will truly be missed. His legacy and work in medicine will continue to live on.
