About me

My name is David Iglesias, MD, and I serve as the chief of the University of Florida Division of Gynecologic Oncology. A proud gator, I attended UF for my undergraduate studies, medical school and residency in obstetrics and gynecology. Following residency, I completed a fellowship in gynecologic oncology at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, where I also earned a Master of Science in biomedical sciences. Prior to UF Health, I was an associate professor of gynecologic oncology at Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine and Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital. I am board certified in both obstetrics and gynecology and gynecologic oncology. I am also an active member of the Society of Gynecologic Oncologists, the Mid-Atlantic Gynecologic Oncology Society, and the Felix Rutledge Society.

I enjoy spending time listening to patients, forming relationships with them and their families, and helping them better understand and navigate often difficult clinical scenarios. My goal is to provide a supportive and comfortable environment, where patients can share their story and we can work together to build a comprehensive, personalized care plan — one that incorporates the most up-to-date, evidenced-based treatments while maximizing quality of life.

Throughout my career, I have worked collaboratively with other physician-scientists, basic scientists and epidemiologists to: 1) investigate the genetic, clinical and epidemiological risk factors that contribute to the development of gynecologic cancers; 2) better understand the underlying mechanisms of this disease and how this information can be used in clinical practice to help treat patients and prevent disease. Recently, my research focus has been improving patients’ access to leading-edge clinical trials for patients with advanced or recurrent ovarian, endometrial and cervical cancers. I also have an interest in strategies to improve patient education and cancer survivorship.

In my free time, I enjoy hiking, backpacking, reading and spending time with my family.
