Perrin Windham, M.D., graduated from the Frederick P. Whiddon College of Medicine in 2019 and was a Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama scholarship recipient.
This week, USA Health Pediatrics welcomed its first patient at the newly established clinic located at 30500 Hwy 181 Suite 200 in Spanish Fort. The space – which is also home to a number of USA Health OB-GYN providers – is conveniently housed at the Eastern Shore Centre.
Perrin Windham, M.D., a 2019 alumna of the Frederick P. Whiddon College of Medicine at the University of South Alabama, serves as the pediatrician at the new space.
A native of Baldwin County, Windham said she is excited to help fill the healthcare gap and give back to both the community and institution that were integral in her becoming a physician. “I was born in Fairhope and lived in Daphne until I left for college,” she said. “When I started medical school, I thought I wanted to become an oncologist. However, after completing my clinical rotations, I soon realized that pediatrics was where I found the most enjoyment and fulfilment. I found that partnering with parents to give their children the best life possible is really rewarding. Getting to watch children grow and reach their milestones is unlike anything else!”
In 2018, Windham served as one of three Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama scholarship recipients – an initiative aimed at expanding access to quality healthcare for all Alabamians. Recipients of the scholarship commit to practicing as a primary care physician for a minimum of three years in a medically under-served area of Alabama.
Windham completed her pediatric residency training at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga/Erlanger, where she served as a resident educator to medical students, visiting junior interns and fellow residents. “We enjoyed our time in the mountains of Chattanooga but are so excited to be back in Baldwin County,” she said. Windham and her husband, Brandon, got married last year at the History Museum of Mobile. They have an energetic Australian Shepherd named Milo and three cats, Rou, Alice and Lily. In her free time, Windham enjoys travelling, playing with her animals, cooking and working on do-it-yourself projects with her husband, and spending time with family and friends.
She is now accepting new patients. To make an appointment, call 251-410-5437.
