DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) – Tuesday, April 27 was the 365 day mark for the Dothan Pediatric Subspecialty Care Clinic which is right next to Montgomery Highway.
This is the only sub-specialty care clinic available in Wiregrass, the other closest sub-specialty care clinics are in Birmingham and Pensacola, according to marketing coordinator Anna Dailey.
This clinic has three newest offerings to the community, namely an X-ray system, a full-service lab, and it is one of two pediatric sleep centers in the state of Alabama.
Last year, the clinic was unable to hold a grand opening due to COVID-19, but on Tuesday they treated patients with drinks and snacks after their visit.
Amid the challenges posed by the virus, they can celebrate their achievements today.
“The types of patients we see will need continuous care year-round,” said Dailey. “So with this clinic you can still see patients and provide that care, the main difference here is waiting in cars versus waiting in, but our care is here, our nurses are fully staffed and we saw about 3,000 new patients in last year . “
Starting Wednesday, the clinic will be offering the COVID-19 vaccines for those 18 to 24 years old. This is by appointment only.
To make an appointment for the COVID-19 vaccine, please call (334)699-3733 ext. 829.
