On March 15, 1991, two young physicians from UAB opened the doors to their new office, and the practice Sparks & Favor saw its first patients. Along with Mrs. Edmonds, our practice administrator then and now, we began a journey that has continued for thirty years.
Along the way, we were fortunate that Drs. Stradtman, Gregory, and Whitehead shared our vision of the how a medical practice should provide care. More than just individual physicians sharing space and equipment, we have truly been a team over these many years. We share call with each other, but not outside of our group. If you need urgent care after hours, know that we share the same concern for each partner’s patients as for our own. We are grateful to have the support of partners we enjoy working with so much and whose judgment we trust and rely on.
So Monday afternoon we celebrated thirty years with a cake and some memories. Many of you recall when we looked like the pictures below (from our first practice brochure and the announcement of our move to Brookwood Women’s Hospital). Most of all, we want to express our sincere gratitude for the trust you have placed in our care for so many years. Coming to know you and sharing both joyous and difficult moments in your life has been a privilege. Thank you.
