Affordable Abortion Fees in Jacksonville, FL
“Unparalleled safe, private, and professional care options at affordable prices”
We are truly committed to keeping our medical fees affordable to all patients while maintaining the highest level of professional, safe, and efficient patient care. Fees for medical services provided at Florida Women’s Center, including abortion procedures, are based and determined on many criteria, depending on what services you request and the associated complexity and length of pregnancy of your individual 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 expertise to providing care. 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 conception. Privacy is of paramount importance and our facility is not located on a public street but deep inside a true medical complex. We don’t just claim we are private, our facility is private.
The costs for abortion services in different cities and geographical areas often vary somewhat, but are still remarkable similar, depending on whether patients are seeking care from what are considered standard abortion clinics or from full time physician run and operated abortion providers like Florida Women’s Center. The cost differences are primarily based on experience, privacy, comfort and continuity of care, depending whether you are seeking care from a full time abortion provider with a known highly experienced doctor like Florida Women’s Center or from technically part-time “family planning” abortion clinics that actually focus on low cost care and low cost nurse provided birth control but may only open only a couple days a week, depending often on whether they can obtain contracted doctors who will come and are willing to provide abortion services. There will always be a clinic with what appear to be discounted or less expensive costs, but this does not mean they are providing the same type of care or have the same level of experience which is the essential component of safe abortions in the modern age. All women deserve to know why a medical procedure is cheaper. Most likely, society knows there are good reasons that “discounted prices” are being offered. But safety, not cost, should always be the highest priority and women’s health and safety is Florida Women’s primary concern.
In reality, there are very few abortion providers even in the entire country that provide full-time medical 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 schedule care with doctors and offices that they feel will provide them the best care to meet their needs and 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”
Our full time, physician operated medical facility provides patients the opportunity for true immediate medical care and immediate scheduling. As we are an actual physician owned medical office, and not a part time medical provider like many abortion clinics in Florida, we provide the true medical environment patients expect with the safe and reliable ability to seek immediate care every day, including for any medical questions or follow-up concerns. We truly understand the immediate needs of women seeking our specialized care and we are known for our proven respect of a woman’s time and comfort. Abortion care has always been known to be a relatively urgent care medical issue and full time facilities like Florida Women’s Center are always able to accommodate immediate appointments if needed. Additionally, our dedicated full time staff work and provide care and medical access to patients every day. 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 for contracted doctors to arrive or delays from doctors not being available for scheduled care. We realize than delays by clinics who are not open to provide facilities every day like normal medical practices can result in patients not knowing their pregnancy is more advanced, and even lead to women losing the option of elective termination. This is never an acceptable situation that should occur only because a part time abortion facility doesn’t have the staff or is not open to provide care every day. Florida Women’s Center, in contrast to part time clinics, is always available to provide immediate care for patients seeking our services. After over 20 years of continual full time operations in the Jacksonville metroplex, Florida Women’s Center has a well established and recognized reputation for offering and delivering experienced, safe and time-sensitive care and we will always provide patients with the opportunity to receive care from our known and respected staff physician which allows patient’s the incredibly important peace of mind of knowing they are being provided care by an experienced, recognized, and known area medical doctor who dedicates his medical practice to providing reliable, safe, and comfortable abortion related medical 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 providing on safe and quality medical services with privacy and dignity. As we are fully committed to providing the most private and dignified environment to everyone, our fees reflect affordable care in a truly physician run private medical facility. This affords women the option of privacy and efficiency, with private and confidential appointments being completed 98% within 2 hours from check-in to discharge. And the pill process, having no requirement for post-op recovery in the office, takes even less time, commonly taking less than an hour for the complete medical eval and office visit. Most importantly, our quality of care, physician expertise, and patient experience is kept at the highest possible level in the largest and most comfortable facility in Jacksonville in a private medical complex. Our appointments and care are always private and patient oriented for comfort and convenience. We provide affordable abortion options and procedures while also allowing patients the true benefit of our private and professional medical care environment and the option to have the procedure performed by our highly experienced physician staff. And our physician and medical services are available everyday of the week, because our doctor is part of a team designed solely to make the patient experience as efficient and pleasant as possible.

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 may make patients wait literally for hours just for a contracted doctor to even show up. 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.
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. ASK for the name of the doctor. If they don’t divulge this information, this may be a “fake pregnancy crisis center” or there may be some other reason they are not divulging the doctor’s name if a doctor even works there. 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. 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 and only provide care privately and individually and since the ultrasound accuracy is extremely important for safety, only our doctor performs all the ultrasounds for accuracy and safety. As we are providing highly sensitive medical care, we also never subject patients to group environments or group counseling that are 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 can vary under unusual circumstances 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 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 perceived privacy and “increased” confidentiality. At Florida Women’s Center, all of our patients are provided VIP care and we provide our private service to everyone for same affordable price. 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 scheduling making everyone’s appointment as private and timely as possible. We schedule all our patients to keep privacy as reasonably 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.
Florida Women’s Center focuses on patient care, patient comfort, and quality medical care. We strive to make our services as comforting and complete as possible all for one affordable price.
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.
