At Fort Payne Pediatrics, we pride ourselves in providing the latest advances in healthcare and technology while maintaining personal care and hometown charm. We strive to recognize each child's individual needs when planning care, to communicate clearly and appropriately with our patients and parents concerning a child's condition and care, and to provide patients and families with a child-friendly, comfortable, and fun office.


Our mission is to make a positive experience out of every child's visit to Fort Payne Pediatrics!
