We see patients primarily on referral from other physicians, but accept direct referrals if a patient’s condition warrants our involvement and the patient does not require referal from a primary care physician. We are a clinical office practice, although we have research interests and participate in clinical research. We practice at a number of hospitals in the Montgomery, Alabama area. In addition, we serve as consultants to the Veterans Administration and the Military Health Care System and military retirees. We are on the active staff of Jackson Hospital and Baptist Medical Center East. Finally, we are a physician-owned practice that participates in a wide variety of insurance plans. We believe this allows us to put you, the patient, first and foremost as our priority
