our story

University Medical Care Doctors The vision of University Medical Care started when I moved to Tampa, FL from Philadelphia, PA in July 1987, to start community based Internal Medicine practice. I opened University Medical Care in January 1990 as a two physician practice. In 1992, we expanded in South Tampa and bought another practice. In 2003, we opened a new location in Citrus Park area and Dr. Shital Mehta from New Jersey joined me. In 2007, we bought the practices of Dr. Frank Tagliarini and Dr. Leon Mitchell in New Tampa and Dr. Sam Scolaro in Brandon, FL. We also opened a new location in Wesley Chapel in 2008. We serve the Tampa Bay area with 4 locations.

Our vision is to provide superior & comprehensive medical care. Currently in our practices, we have 6 Physicians and 2 Nurse Practitioners. University Medical Care is also known as The Diabetic Treatment Center of Tampa. We provide a wide range of diabetes care including diabetic classes, onsite diet teaching by a Certified Diabetic Educator, an exercise program by a Certified Physical Fitness Instructor, Yoga meditation classes by a Certified Yoga Instructor as a form of treatment to diabetic patients and extensive education about insulin injections and insulin pump treatment.

All locations are equipped with vascular and ultrasound labs, lower extremity circulation testing and breathing testing (Spirometry). We perform minor surgeries by trained Internists and well women examinations by our female Nurse Practitioners. We also provide inpatient care to all of our patients at most hospitals in the Tampa Bay area. We believe in one stop shopping for all patients for their comprehensive medical care.
