Prior to becoming an ophthalmologist, Dr. Endicott served the Navy as a Naval Flight Officer, flying the Grumman EA-6B Prowler jet onboard the USS KITTY HAWK aircraft carrier and deployed throughout the western Pacific Ocean, Indian Ocean, and the Persian Gulf.
After attending medical school at the Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine in Glendale, Arizona, and the completion of a Family Medicine internship at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, he was trained as a Naval Flight Surgeon. He served as a flight surgeon with the US Marine Corps in Okinawa, Japan, and deployed throughout the western Pacific to Indonesia, the Philippines, and Korea on numerous occasions.
Upon completing ophthalmology residency training at Naval Medical Center San Diego, CA, he transferred to Jacksonville, FL. After being stationed in Florida numerous times over his career, including Orlando, Pensacola, and Jacksonville, he considers Ocala his forever home. “I’ve been all over the world and I can say Ocala is truly a special place and I am proud to call it home.”
“It has been a true privilege and absolute honor to serve in the US Navy as a Naval Flight Officer, Naval Flight Surgeon, and as an Ophthalmologist providing top-notch eye care to our active duty service members, military retirees, and their family members. I now look forward to providing the same high-caliber ophthalmology care to our Ocala and Central Florida residents. I am grateful for such a privilege to serve and care for my past, present, and future patients.”
