The primary care doctors and pediatricians of Providence Medical Group are now offering convenient, online scheduling for both new and existing patients in the Mobile area.

Patients can view available appointments with more than 40 healthcare providers at 14 different locations and select a time that fits their busy schedules. Appointments can be scheduled for regular check-ups, physicals, or sick visits.

Providence Medical Group is affiliated with Providence Hospital and part of Ascension, the nation’s largest non-profit and Catholic health system.

“This is just another way Ascension care teams at Providence are making it easier for patients to get the care they need, when and where they need it,” said Chris Byrd, executive director of Providence Medical Group. “This will mean that consumers will be able to schedule their own appointments online with family medicine, internal medicine and pediatric doctors and advance practice providers.”

The addition of online scheduling is part of a nationwide effort by Ascension to provide easy access to compassionate, personalized care close to home.

Effective May 30, patients can visit to schedule a primary care appointment.

Providence Medical Group is the area’s largest non-profit network of primary care and specialty physicians. It provides more than 20 locations across South Alabama and Southern Mississippi and 70 physicians from specialties including family medicine, endocrinology, general surgery, radiation oncology and more.
