One day while walking to class, Randall “Drew” Madison, M.D., received a phone call that changed his life. Madison, a college student at the time, learned his father severely injured his hand while working at a shop. Seeing the care the surgeon provided to his father was an experience Madison never forgot.
“I attended the post-op visits with my dad. The presence of the physician that cared for his injury reflected competence, efficiency and kindness and that’s what I want to emulate with my patients,” he said.
Madison was recently appointed assistant professor of orthopaedics at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine. He credits USA Health Orthopaedic Trauma Surgeon Jeffrey Brewer, M.D., as the reason he chose to pursue his career at USA. “Jeff and I were residents in New York. When I found out he was looking for a partner, it was an easy decision,” Madison said. “To have a good working relationship with someone you trust is critical in healthcare. I look forward to providing world-class care with my colleagues at USA Health.”
Madison received his medical degree from the University of Kansas School of Medicine in Kansas City. He went on to complete his residency in orthopaedic surgery at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York. He completed a fellowship in orthopaedic trauma at the University of Tennessee College of Medicine in Chattanooga.
Madison is now accepting patients at the Strada Patient Care Center on Center Street in Mobile. To make an appointment, call (251) 665-8200.
