Dr. Chanley Dudley joined the practice in July 2013. Dr. Dudley was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida, and grew up as a patient in the Carithers Group practice. She attended The Bolles School followed by Harvard College and received her medical degree from the University of Florida College of Medicine. She completed her internship, residency, and a Chief Resident year at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston prior to returning home to Jacksonville.
Dr. Dudley is a board-certified pediatrician. She enjoys caring for children of all ages but has a special interest in children and adolescents with complex medical or social situations and in those who struggle with speech/language disorders and other learning differences.
Her drive to help children with communication impairment stems from her own son’s journey with apraxia (a motor planning speech disorder) and dyslexia, and thus Dr. Dudley is well versed in IEP advocacy as well as the speech, occupational, and/or physical therapy needs of children with developmental disabilities.
She currently serves on the boards of JASMYN (the Jacksonville Area Sexual Minority Youth Network) and of The DePaul School of Northeast Florida, a non-profit dyslexia-specific elementary school in Jacksonville.
