News & Events

 

After over 34 years of private pediatric practice, the doctors and almost all of our staff are retiring come December 31, 2021. We have tried to notify all of our active patient families about our retirement plans. If you have more questions, please contact our office prior to December 31, 2021. Thank you!

 

Dr. Scott has written a number of referenced articles about COVID-19 that can be found at acpeds.org under Topics / COVID-19. A manuscript resulting from the influenza research that many of our patient families participated in has been submitted to a peer reviewed medical journal and as of 12/2/21 is still under review.

 

It has been a pleasure and an honor to have had the privilege of providing care for your children, our patients.

About Us

 

Scott and Susan Field met at Birmingham-Southern College where they were both chemistry majors (Susan also majored in Math). They went to medical school at the University of Alabama in Birmingham (UAB) with Scott one year before Susan. They were married just before Susan started medical school. Scott did his pediatric internship at UAB before they both went to Pensacola, Florida for the rest of their pediatric training. They are both board certified in Pediatrics, and members of the American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds).


After residency, Scott started working at Fox Army Hospital on Redstone Arsenal near Huntsville, Alabama where he had grown up, and Susan worked in a small group private practice.


After their first child was born, call coverage potential conflicts with childcare prompted them to go into private practice together. They go by Dr. Scott and Dr. Susan. For the first 10 years, they were at 600 St. Clair. Then they built their current office and established Field Pediatrics, PC.


The practice has been blessed with great registered nurses well trained in pediatrics. Teresa has been with us from the beginning. We have also been blessed with friendly and caring receptionists who are our front line, as well as professional and courteous billing personnel.


Dr. Susan worked part time throughout the time their children were growing up while Dr. Scott has worked full time and taken call after hours. He has shared weekend call with Dr. Michael Powell and Dr. N. Rao Thotakura for over 30 years. They also cover for us when we are on vacation about 2 weeks per year. We or our on-call associates are available 24 hours per day 365 days per year.
