News & Events

 

We’ve made it through the first 6 months of the COVID-19 pandemic, and plan to be in it for the long-haul. The extraordinary wellness that was experienced during the first few months of the pandemic has given way to more illness, including COVID-19, in recent months with the opening of daycares, businesses, and activities. At the same time, we have tried to stay on top of the latest information as demonstrated with the 3/16/20, 4/1/20, 5/1/20, 6/1/20, 7/2/20, and 9/4/20 updates written by Dr. Scott and also available through the acpeds.org website. We continue to learn, but we hope that spread of COVID-19 as well as other diseases will be reduced this coming fall and winter with precautions taken. We are overdue for a light flu season.
Due to the evidence that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is often spread by people who do not know that they are sick, we request that everyone coming to our office call first (rather than just walking in) and please wear a mask or face shield. That is especially true for people who have coughs or are sneezing. Thank you for your cooperation.

 

We continue to take pleasure in serving as your children’s pediatricians.

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.
