Dr. Justin Moy, MD
Justin Moy, MD, is a board-certified otolaryngologist (ENT) at Baptist Medical Center South. He is a former Navy commander and a decorated veteran who spent 13 years caring for military families on both coasts, including serving as a department head for otolaryngology at NAS Jacksonville. He specialized in Otolaryngology because of the diverse nature of the field and his interest in disorders of the ear, nose, and throat.
His areas of expertise include:
●Sinonasal disorders ●Thyroid disorders ●Throat disorders ●Balloon sinuplasty
Dr. Moy treats infants to seniors. His philosophy of care is a patient-centric, collaborative approach. He focuses on establishing rapport with my patients so that he and the patient can decide on the best course of treatment together.
While serving in the U.S. Navy, he advanced to the rank of commander and practiced medicine in naval medical centers on both coasts, including Jacksonville. He moved to Jacksonville in 2012 and he and his family enjoy activities, including swimming, biking, fishing and spending time at the beach.
Dr. Mary Czerny, MD, is an experienced, board-certified otolaryngologist at Baptist Medical Center South who treats a broad range of conditions of the ear, nose, throat, and neck. Dr. Czerny enjoys the blend of medical and surgical treatment in her field, which allows her to provide comprehensive care to a diverse range of patients. Her areas of expertise include:
●Nasal and sinus disorders ●Endoscopic sinus surgery ●Thyroid masses and surgery ●Vocal cord lesions and paralysis
Dr. Czerny treats infants to seniors. She has suffered from seasonal allergies her entire life, so she can relate to allergy and sinus patients and how their problems affect their quality of life. Dr. Czerny values having an open dialogue with her patients so she can understand their main concerns. She likes to educate patients so they leave with more than just a treatment plan--they also have knowledge about their condition.
After decades of cold Midwestern winters, Dr. Czerny was thrilled to fulfill her dream of living near the ocean by moving to Jacksonville. Her family, especially her two young children, enjoy the beach and water-based activities.
Her last name, Czerny (pronounced “Chur-nee”) comes from her native-born Polish husband. As a person who enjoys learning about different languages and cultures, she spends some of her free time working on expanding my Polish vocabulary.
