“I enjoy watching children grow and helping parents as they learn what it means to be a parent. I have been blessed to be able to care for the children of children I have cared for.”

Dr. Searcy first established a private practice in Cincinnati, Ohio, and served as Assistant Professor of pediatrics at CHMC until 1988. He returned to Alabama in September 1988 and joined Southeastern Pediatric Associates.
