Jaunice Scopelliti Cottone, PA-C
Physician Assistant


As an infertility patient herself, this field is near and dear to Jaunice. To be able to walk alongside her patients and provide support during their journey to becoming parents, and any routes it may take to get there, is something that brings her great joy. She strives to consider all aspects of the patient when providing their care and pays attention to even the smallest details, which can often make the biggest difference.

She is originally from Boise, ID, attended college in Reno, NV, and moved after college to Tampa, FL. She spent the last 18 years in Tampa, and it is where she met her husband, became a PA, had her daughter and son, and discovered her love for learning to salsa dance!  Her family recently moved to North Carolina to join the Duke Family, and she looks forward to the four seasons, being closer to snow, finding a church family, and making new friends and memories here!
