Welcome to Our Family Health Clinic

At the Heekin Clinic, we believe that pain-free mobility is key to your health and happiness. When you can’t do the things you love, it affects every aspect of your life. That’s why the Heekin Clinic is on a mission to give the people of Jacksonville and Northeast Florida the best orthopedic care anywhere, starting with you.

At the Heekin Clinic you’ll have a one-on-one relationship with one of Florida’s top orthopedic surgeons, Dr. Ralph Rizk. A fellowship trained orthopaedic surgeon who treats adults and children, he specializes in hip and knee reconstruction/replacement, as well as surgical treatment of shoulder, hand, foot & ankle conditions.  Dr. Rizk utilizes the most advanced surgical techniques, including robotic hip (anterior approach) and knee replacement, as well as multimodal pain management to decrease patient pain and discomfort after surgery, leading to faster recovery.

Our surgical or non-surgical orthopedic treatments focus on: knowing your needs, easing your pain, and getting you moving again.

Working alongside Dr. Rizk is a caring and professional staff that ensures each visit moves you toward your best outcome. We recognize that a friendly smile along the way can help ease the pain, too.

Our Mission Is to Provide a Professional & Honest Approach to Health Care

Dr. Heekin replaced my left hip on February 1, 2012. At 69 years young I wanted to be able to continue to work and stay physically active. I have been able to do all of that and more. Thank you…
