Meet Our Experts

Dr. Shirley Hartman, MD

Dr. Shirley Hartman combines the best of traditional medicine and science with acupuncture, nutrition, frequency-specific microcurrent, kinesiology (muscle testing), and Cranio-sacral therapy.

Her openness to alternative medicine began in the ’60s and 70’s when her mother (an Iowa farm wife) studied metaphysics.

Dr. Hartman majored in biochemistry and minored in nutrition at Iowa State University. She received her Doctor of Medicine degree in 1982 and completed her residency in 1985. She was board certified in Family Practice in 1985 and was re-certified in 1991, 1998 and 2005. 

She received her acupuncture training in Jacksonville from 1985-1987. Acupuncture has remained an integral part of her practice since.

Robyn Hughes, DNP, APRN, FNP-BC

Robyn received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Doctor of Nursing Practice degrees from the University of Florida. She worked as a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit nurse for 4.5 years before beginning her career as a nurse practitioner.

She developed a love of alternative medicine after training under a functional medicine nurse practitioner during her schooling. She loves the opportunity to get to know her patients on a more personal level and collaborate with them to establish effective treatment protocols.

Robyn grew up in Orlando, FL, but relocated to Jacksonville, FL with her husband in 2017 to be closer to family.
