Affordable Abortion Fees, Private Care in Jacksonville, FL
“Unparalleled privacy, known safety, and professional experienced medical care and abortion care options at affordable prices”
Florida Women’s Center is truly committed to keeping our medical fees affordable to all patients while maintaining and allowing women the opportunity to obtain true peace of mind in knowing they are receiving only professional level care by known and highly experienced medical and surgical abortion professionals in a safe and truly private medical office environment. Patients now realize they have options as to what type of environment they seek abortion care from, and now have the choice to obtain the high level of professional, safe, and efficient patient care they deserve, as we offer women a private and predictably professional option for care in contrast to lengthy, uncomfortable, and often unpredictable clinic type environments. Our advanced level abortion care option is offered in a full time medical facility and our physician is available everyday for patient safety and patient peace of mind.
Fees for the medical care and services provided at Florida Women’s Center, including both medical and surgical abortion procedures, are always based and determined on many criteria, depending on what services a patient requests and the associated complexity of each individual patient’s situation. Fees to obtain an abortion procedure are generally determined initially by how many weeks the pregnancy has progressed, with a standard cost increase as the pregnancy advances beyond 12 weeks and for factors that may make the procedure more difficult and require a more medical abortion related experience to perform safely. The date of a pregnancy is always calculated from the first day of your last normal menstrual cycle, which is actually approximately two weeks before a women’s conception date, or more commonly known as the time a woman becomes pregnant. At every office visit, a verification ultrasound is performed on each and every patient by the doctor performing all procedures to assure accuracy and safety. Privacy is of paramount importance and our private facility is not located on a public street but deep inside a truely private medical complex, directly behind a major hospital. We don’t just claim we are private, our facility is private.
The costs for abortion services in different cities, and even in geographical areas may vary somewhat, but generally fall within a range depending on whether care is being sought at full time physician run, modern abortion providers like ours at Florida Women’s Center or if care is being sought at what are considered older group-scheduled type abortion clinic environments. Prices may fluctuate in some clinic or family planning type facilities but these cost differences or “discounts” are often simply reflective of the type of experience that is offered by a facility, as well as different levels of medical experience, privacy, safety, comfort that is available and being provided to patients. As part-time facilities don’t provide abortion care procedures every day, some clinics may use reductions in cost to initially attract patients to come to their facility on the days they have expect to have a physician available. Patients realize though, in modern times, that true professional medical care options when seeking abortion procedures are very limited relating to available facilities and truly experienced caring doctors providing abortion related care, and these difference in the limited options often relate to very different types of facility experiences which include factors of physician experience, appointment availability and reliability, privacy, and even safety.
Providing our patients a professional, experienced level of care and personalized appointment scheduling is very important for privacy and ensuring women are treated by experienced and known physicians. These are essential components of providing safe and comfortable abortions in modern times. All women deserve to know the reason why any medical procedure is being offered at a discounted price. We realize that safety and comfort are the highest priority and women’s health and safety is Florida Women’s Center’s primary concern. Our private scheduling focuses on our patients as we have a full time doctor. At Florida Women’s Center, you can be seen immediately and reliably and you will have the peace of mind that is so important to transition safely through this time.
In reality, there are very few abortion providers even in the entire country that provide full-time comprehensive abortion options and care like Florida Women’s Center. As with all medical care, we want all patients to always feel comfortable with their choice of medical providers and always encourage patients to know your doctor, know the facility you are seeking care from, and schedule care with known experienced doctors and offices that they feel will provide them the best care to meet their needs, their safety, and their comfort.
“Florida Women’s Center is currently Jacksonville’s only full time abortion provider that is directly owned, operated and staffed by a well-known respected and highly experienced local Florida licensed medical doctor who provides abortion care and procedures every day of the week, with both morning and afternoon appointment options available daily for your privacy, safety, and comfort”
When seeking abortion services, more now than ever before, it is well known that every day matters when seeking an appointment for abortion services to assure a woman has all options available when seeking abortion services and care. There are a growing amount of important time limitations being imposed on women in the current environment and abortion related options and care is determined by how far a pregnancy has progressed, with limits of service based on gestational dating. Immediate evaluation and medical work-up is essential in assuring women have all options for care available. Our full time, physician operated medical facility provides patients the opportunity for true immediate medical care and we always offer immediate scheduling. Patients never have to wait for care in our facility as we have a full time doctor on staff, every day for patient safety. You will know we are a full time facility when you call and can be provided immediate care, often even the same day if needed. As we are an actual physician owned medical office, and not a part time medical provider like many clinics offering to provide abortion services in Florida, we provide the true medical environment patients expect with the safe and reliable ability to seek immediate care every day, including being available for any medical questions or follow-up concerns and care if needed. This is peace of mind. This is modern abortion care all women deserve.
The immediate needs of women seeking our specialized care is well known. Abortion care has always been recognized to be a relatively urgent care medical issue and full time facilities like Florida Women’s Center are always able to accommodate immediate, timely appointments if needed. There is never a delay in patient care or a need for delay in appointment making for patients because Florida Women’s Center accommodates all patients for immediate care by expanding our full time schedule if necessary to meet the needs of all patients with our ability to provide thorough and full time medical care. There is never any unnecessary prolonged waiting or unnecessary delays from unavailable contacted doctors coming in from out of town. We realize that delays by abortion clinics who are not open to provide patient procedures every day as they don’t have regular medical doctors can result in patients not knowing if their pregnancy may be more advanced, and even may lead to women losing the option of elective termination if not seen reliably and most importantly, immediately. Florida Women’s Center, in contrast to part time abortion clinics, is available to provide immediate care for patients seeking our services. After over 22 years of continual, full time operations in the Jacksonville metroplex, Florida Women’s Center has a well known, well established, and well recognized reputation for offering and delivering experienced, safe and time-sensitive care. We will always provide patients with the opportunity to receive care from our known and respected on-staff physician which allows patient’s the incredibly important peace of mind of knowing they are being provided care by an experienced, safe, recognized, and known area medical doctor who is dedicated to providing reliable, safe, and comfortable abortion related medical care. This is modern abortion care.
We always recognize that cost of medical care is very important to patients, so we always make sure that our care is as affordable as possible, while also adhering to the highest safety standards and providing only truly safe and quality medical services with privacy and dignity by experienced professionals. Florida Womens Center remains fully committed to providing the most private and dignified environment to everyone with the most modern and effective processes and procedures, our fees reflect affordable modern, safe and thorough care in a truly physician run private medical facility.

Here are a few things to look for when determining costs and fees when seeking abortion procedures:
You will find that fees in different cities and some standard clinics can be very different and there are many reasons costs may vary. As with many businesses, there may be “clinics” that offer reduced and discounted prices for various reasons, but we always recommend that patients confirm who the doctor providing your care will be and that all respected medical facilities should readily provide this information. Your health and safety is very important and patients should know if their medical care is being provided by qualified, experienced and fully licensed medical doctors. The fees for advanced or complicated procedures may vary based on many factors, even including the experience and abilities of the medical doctor who will be providing your care. It is well known that not all abortion providers have the same level of experience and many only work part time and often live in other States or cities. This is why some facilities bring in patients early for group work-ups and then may make patients wait many hours just for a part-time doctor to arrive. This is not how Florida Women’s Center operates and patients appreciate the fact that care is provided when they arrive for their scheduled appointments. Florida Women’s Center stands out proudly as a full time abortion care provider, with a doctor who works full time in the office and we are the only facility in our area that is able to offer this kind of continuous, comfortable, safe, and efficient type of service due to our full time medical office operations.
Also, as always it is prudent to be cautious of advertising tactics used by facilities relating to fees and services, including the internet. Pregnancy “crisis” facilities that actually DO NOT EVEN PROVIDE abortion procedures often will attempt to confuse or entice patients seeking abortions into their facilities with offers of free ultrasounds and free pregnancy testing and will even list their facilities under abortion services categories and make web sites that look somewhat like medical websites. These “pregnancy help center type facilities”, which do not provide any abortion services, may even provide prices for aboriton over the phone, despite not offering or providing abortion services. You often won’t even know they are not licensed medical facilities and don’t even provide abortion procedures until you arrive. Always ASK for the name of the doctor and ask a doctor is in the building. If they don’t divulge this information, this may be what is commonly known as a “fake pregnancy crisis center or some type of help center” or there may be some other reason they are not divulging the doctor’s name if a doctor even works there. That should be red flag as every patient has the right to know this information. Some facilities will even label standard testing, ultrasounds, anesthesia and even follow-up visits as being “free” but in actuality, these services are uniformly included in the modern abortion procedure for one base fee. If a place has a sign that says “free ultrasounds” in front of the building, it is likely one of those “crisis or help facilities” that does not provide abortion services or medical care. As these services are already standard and necessary services that are part of the modern abortion process for patients seeking a pregnancy termination, they are included in the base cost of abortion related care. While this is becoming less and less common, advertising things for free still occurs, although these free items are known to be part of the routine base fee when you pay for an abortion procedure.
At Florida Women’s Center, we provide comprehensive care for one set fee, in a full time medical practice which is what patients expect and appreciate when seeking medical care. As is standard, fees are collected upon arrival and a highly efficient, time sensitive multi-step individualized evaluation begins, including an ultrasound and an individual personal meeting with the doctor after appropriate information is obtained during the intake process to review the procedure and answer any questions or concerns. We always provide care privately and only individually and since the ultrasound accuracy is extremely important for safety, our medical doctor always is the one who performs all the ultrasounds for accuracy and safety. As we are providing highly private and sensitive medical care, we also never subject patients to group environments or any type of group counseling that may be common in standard abortion clinics. Our office strives to keep patients comfortable, informed, and safe during this medical transition and an abortion office visit is almost always less than 2 hours due to our private care. Fees may vary of course under unusual circumstances or in rare cases, but the fee only varies if there are circumstances that warrant it, as we treat everyone individually and some patients may have greater needs than others. Our recognition of every patient’s individuality is what sets us apart from others. Although 98% of patients don’t have additional needs, we want to make sure if you do that we recognize them and we let you know so together we can work through them to provide you with the best options for care.
We, of course, offer walk-in basic urine pregnancy tests at no charge, so that women have a reliable place to go to get this sensitive information in a truly supportive and non-judgmental environment that is licensed to practice medicine and able to give you medical advice and assistance. At Florida Women’s Center, our inclusive fee includes all of the standard laboratory work-up, personal physician evaluation, ultrasound, and RH blood typing, which is part of the normal evaluation of every patient seeking a pregnancy termination. In addition, a follow-up visit is recommended for all patients and included at no additional charge within a designated time period.
Finally, there are still a handful of clinics that may provide or use a menu-type system, sometimes even claiming to provide patients with the option of what they call “VIP” services to allow them to charge an increased rate for privacy or “increased” confidentiality. This really says it all. At Florida Women’s Center, all of our patients are provided private, individualized VIP level care, and we provide our private service platform to everyone. With our truly large and comfortably designed facility, all of our patients are treated with the highest respect and strictest confidentiality protocols, and our private, individualized scheduling makes everyone’s appointment as private and as timely as possible. We schedule all our patients to keep privacy as effective as possible, and our thoughtful patient oriented scheduling keeps our patient flow smooth, comfortable, and private. Of course, like all of our care, if a patient has truly exceptional needs, the patient can call our office and arrange for these needs to be met..
Our commitment at Florida Women’s Center has always been to provide every patient we care for only the highest level of care in our private and comfortable physician staffed, private medical environment. Our open and honest fee approach makes sure that patients only receive modern and complete medical care and abortion services.
