My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As your primary care physician, my hope is that we form a close doctor-patient partnership to help you live healthier – no matter your current state of health. I offer holistic (whole-person), patient-centered, medicine with over 35 years of experience. I also offer many choices to help encourage you to take action and strive for a healthier lifestyle which is so important to your well-being and quality of life. Each day, we can take a step closer to a cleaner, more active and healthier life.

We are a teaching clinic with osteopathic medical students from Auburn University and nurse practitioner students from all over the southern United States. It is exciting for these students to see firsthand the benefits of a more personal and proactive approach to patient care.

My MDVIP-affiliated practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices.

I am affiliated with Twin Cities Hospital and serve patients from Freeport, DeFuniak Springs, Crestview, Niceville, Seminole, Fort Walton Beach, Destin and the surrounding areas.  


 It is important, now more than ever, to have a primary care doctor who has the time and resources to care for you personally and proactively. Watch this video to hear more.

I’m so glad to be in the care of a MDVIP doctor. She takes my vitals, discusses everything I need to cover in detail, takes lots of notes, gives ME a copy. She adjusts my medication/dose till we get it fine tuned and I am a happy guy!

from Robin in FL January 27, 2024 for Julie A. Staats, DO, FAAFP

I have been a patient of Julie Staats for years. She is the most caring, diligent and knowledgeable physician I’ve ever known.

I am very grateful to Julie and her fantastic staff and I praise God for directing me to her.

from Jackie in FL January 19, 2024 for Julie A. Staats, DO, FAAFP

My husband & I had been going to the same doctor for about 16 years. Because of our age we decided we needed a doctor that did more than refer us to specialist.

Because of the change in my health, my husband joined. Dr… See more
