During the many years that our practice has served the children of central Alabama, we have undergone many transitions. However, one thing that has not changed has been our practice's commitment to the health and well-being of children. Our practice was founded by our senior physician, Dr. Robert Beshear, in 1977. "Dr. Bob", as he has always affectionately been called by thousands of young admirers has been a tireless voice for Alabama's children both locally and statewide.

Another source of pride in our office is the family atmosphere provided by such a close-knit group of employees. These are the folks who greet you with a smile at the front desk, with courteous attention on the telephone, and with compassionate commitment throughout our office. We are like a family and our patients feel this loving atmosphere which is so rare in today's hectic world.

Physicians To Children is proud of the many years of service our practice has provided to children of central Alabama. In addition, we serve patients from surrounding areas such as Selma, Clanton and Andalusia. Our physicians, nurses and entire staff feel a unique and genuine calling to care for children and their families.

Check-ups and Immunizations
Check-ups are important for maintaining good health, and for detection and prevention of developmental problems and illness. An approved schedule of immunizations will be followed on these check-up visits.

Our check-up schedule is as follows: Monthly for ages one and two months; then at four months, six months, nine months, twelve months, fifteen months, and eighteen months. Beginning at age two years, the child is seen once yearly through the age of eighteen.

Emergencies
If the emergency is a life-threatening situation, either call the rescue squad (911) or go immediately to the emergency room of the nearest hospital. The emergency room personnel and physician on duty will begin immediate treatment while calling us.

If you have an urgent problem that can wait for the time it takes to make a phone call, please call us at 334-293-5033 first before leaving your home. We can arrange to see your child more quickly and efficiently in this way.
