News & Events


Dr. Susan, Dr. Scott, and almost all of their staff officially retired at the end of 2021. We still have patient records, but they will eventually be destroyed, so please call 256-883-7153 if you need medical records.


Many of our patients participated in Dr. Scott’s 2 season case-control influenza study. It was finally published in 2022 (see under Featured Research). Thank you to all those who participated and made it possible.


Dr. Scott has written a number of referenced articles about COVID-19 that can be found at under Topics / COVID-19. On the same website, you can find other Position Statements that he has helped draft including an updated HPV Vaccine statement.


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 the office building at 1106 Gleneagles Drive and established Field Pediatrics, P.C., which is now dissolved.

The practice was 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 shared weekend call with Dr. Michael Powell and Dr. N. Rao Thotakura for over 30 years.
