Serving Dothan, AL
Since 1976, the physicians and staff of Southeastern Pediatric Associates have been honored to serve the families of Dothan, Alabama and the surrounding area which includes Northwest Florida, and Georgia.
During the mid-seventies, while in residency together at Children’s Hospital of Alabama in Birmingham, Dr. Robert Head and Dr. Ted Williams, a Headland native, formed a friendship that would become much more. Recognizing their like-mindedness, they began to discuss a common vision for a new pediatric practice. Dr. Head, in his final year of residency, was courted by several Birmingham area pediatric practices, but his heart was elsewhere.
In July of 1976, He opened the doors of Southeastern Pediatric Associates in Dothan, Alabama while Dr. Williams completed his residency at Children’s as Chief Resident. He would finally join Dr. Head in July of 1977. Dr. Williams fondly describes Dr. Head as having compassion for children and parents alike. After purchasing land from Dr. Williams’ father-in-law, the first building was built on that property, and opened at 1105 West Main Street in Dothan, Alabama.
Through the years, the practice has added physicians to the family. When asked if the philosophy of the practice has remained the same, Dr. Williams replied, “Absolutely, we’ve chosen people who love to take care of children and families.” As the family grew, so did the need for a larger, updated facility now located at 364 Honeysuckle Road.
