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 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.

Getting Established

The first visit we make to the newborn nursery (we go to both Huntsville Women & Children’s Hospital and Crestwood Medical Center) or your child’s first scheduled visit to our office will establish your child in our practice.

Otherwise, we generally can not see new patients without a pre-scheduled visit due to time constraints since we always take more time on the first visit to be thorough. That means that if you are planning to use us but circumstances arise in which your child needs to be seen before the scheduled new patient appointment, you may need to use the emergency room at that time. We have that policy out of respect for the time of our established patients.

For Established Patients

During the COVID-19 pandemic, please call prior to all visits that we have not already confirmed. Thank you.

Scheduling is one of the most difficult tasks for our receptionists because each doctor can only see one patient at a time and often a number of people get sick or injured at the same time or want to be seen at a particular time of day like after school. Historically, Mondays are usually busier because problems arise or are noticed more over weekends that prompts parents to want to get things taken care of that day.

Call 256-881-9355 for appointments during our regular office hours. We are at 1106 Gleneagles Drive, Huntsville, Alabama 35801
