Due to the inclement weather, Southview Medical Group, PC will be closed on Tuesday, February 16.
I would like to get on the list for Covid-19 shot. My name is Carol Sullivan
2-19-1944 Birth date. My primary care physician is Jeremy Smith.
I live in Hueytown, AL . I am 76 years old and I have an Interstitial Lung disease. Thank you so much for your help.
Appreciate all the information! Wanting to know how much our doctors are following all the positive results for early home treatments that have been shown to drastically lower the amount of hospitalizations? This is the latest webinar put out by doctors laboring to get the information out:
My husband was there around 0800. He loved the drive thru.
I’ve been a patient of Dr. Little for just over a year, but as of today I’m finding a new primary care doctor. Dr. Little has been fine, but his office staff has been anything but. Over the last year, it’s been near impossible to get someone to answer the phone, which is unfortunately the only way to make an appointment. I’ve played phone tag for several days just to get an appointment and more than once gave up on seeing Dr. Little to go to a doc in the box for my issues. On the rare occasion that someone in Dr. Little’s office does answer, they are short and act annoyed that they have to answer questions. Messages i send through the online portal have gone unanswered which makes me wonder if anyone is even monitoring that inbox. If not, why even open that feature of the patient portal?

This morning was the last straw for me. After confirming my appointment on Monday, i was told this morning that they made a mistake when scheduling today’s appointment because of timing with annual physical and insurance. The receptionist didn’t ask me about rescheduling, but instead told me that this is my fault (even though Dr. Little’s office scheduled the appointment). The receptionist also implied that Dr. Little has plenty of patients so if not happy i should just go somewhere else.

Guess what? I’m going somewhere else.

Luckily I live in Birmingham where there are 5 doctors for every resident so i was able to get an appointment at another practice very quickly.

If Dr. Little does see this message, you were a good doctor, but your staff couldn’t be bothered so I’m going somewhere else.
Horrible experience with this group yesterday...thought I'd finally gotten my mom (87 years old) a good DR...only to find out I was wrong...very wrong...had an appt yesterday morning that was made 6 months ago...got there and was told it was not on the books...even with our paperwork in hand...then was told the "DR" was not in, then she was in, then she was "sick"...we'll never be back...sad, sad, sad...
Christina, Dr. Norris' nurse, is the BEST!
need to get into my portal acct. help.

*****UPDATE ABOUT COVID-19 VACCINE*****

Southview Medical Group has been in contact with the Alabama Department of Public Health today, Feburary 2, 2021, and have been assured that additional doses of the COVID-19 vaccine are being sent to us.

This site will be updated as soon as the additional doses arrive and we will use the queue already created to provide these vaccines to our patients as soon as we receive them.

If you have already sent an email, do not send another one. Your name is in the queue.

01/19/2021

Southview Medical received 500 doses of Moderna. Here are some of interesting facts:
1. The Moderna vials hold 10 vaccinations. However, the vials are overfilled. This means we usually can get an 11th shot from a vial.
2. The vials take 2 hours to thaw. They are good in a refrigerator for 30 days, and once opened, we have six hours to administer them.
3. We are currently administering 110 shots per day. This is usually one every 5 minutes.
4. It is a constant battle not to waste a vaccine. 10 or 11 per vial is our target. We get it exactly right each time, and there is none wasted. We have patients on standby, that usually can get here within 15 minutes for that 11th dose.
5. Space (square footage) is an issue as you have to be held for 15 minutes’ post-shot to make sure you do not have a reaction to the vaccine. This is the driving force for limiting patients to one per every 5 minutes.
6. Chairs, times, pens, clipboards, etc are all disinfected after each use.
7. We are reimbursed approximately $18 for the first shot and $28 for the 2nd shot administration of the vaccine.
8. Medicare and commercial insurance will reimburse for the administration cost. However, patients on Medicare advantage plan will not. This means we have to set up a third insurance carrier in the patients chart specifically to bill this one charge.
9. While the reimbursement is needed, it by no means covers the overhead needed to administer, document these vaccinations.
10. Every patient has to fill out paperwork, which is then uploaded to the Alabama Department of Public health each night. This takes about 2 hours at the conclusion of the day.
11. ADPH will not even allow us to order further vaccines until we have administered at least one half of our initial shipment. We have to explain this to the 5,000 people on our waiting list.
12. Side effects from the Moderna that have been reported are arm pain and headaches. However, other symptoms such as fatigue, muscle pain, joint pain, chills, nausea and vomiting, and fever.
13. These are recommended to be treated with Advil/Aleve, hot packs, and lidocaine/aspercreme patches commonly found at any drug store.
14. If you had Covid 19 already, you should still get the vaccine. The 90 day “immunity” is just a recommendation to allow those who have not had the Coronavirus to get the vaccines first. However, upon receiving the vaccine, and you had Covid, you may experience more severe side effects.
15. We are administering these shots to established patients of Southview Medical. We made this decision due to us having access to the patients’ medical records and their physician being on site in case there is a reaction.
16. We have 42,000 +/- patients over the age of 65 that we have seen within the last 12 months. Age bracket 19-64 has another 32,000 +/- patients.
17. Despite many calls asking otherwise, we have to follow the ADPH guidelines. Right now we are in level 1B, (age 75) and up. You may have multiple comorbidities and are younger than 75, but we cannot make exceptions.

01/11/2021

Southview Medical will begin to administer Covid 19 vaccinations on Monday, January 18, 2021 for our existing patients. Age 75 and greater is the qualification in accordance with section 1B of the ADPH Prioritization and Availability memo.

If you fall within this class, please send an email to this email link: [email protected]

Please list your name and date of birth along with any specific days and/or times that will be convenient for you. We will reply back with a time for you to visit along with directions to our vaccine clinic.

Please note: If you receive your initial vaccine at Southview, you will be scheduled for a 2nd booster shot at a timeframe designated by the vaccine manufacturer. HOWEVER, based upon vaccine shortage allocations from the State of Alabama, we may not have a 2nd shot available on your scheduled return date. If this situation occurs, it may delay your booster shot by some unknown time period. According to Dr. Allen, our Infectious Disease MD, this is not a cause of concern.

If you have any further questions, please also include them in your email.
