100 years ago, William W. Perdue founded Perdue and Perdue (later the Mobile Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat Center), the first and oldest clinic of its kind in the country. After studying at the University of Alabama, in New York, and in Vienna, Austria, Dr. Perdue applied his expertise to providing the utmost care for his patients. With his brothers and other doctors joining the practice, Dr. Perdue worked toward his goal of a cooperative effort in medicine to best serve his patients. Dr. Perdue and his associates were pioneers in the specialties of ophthalmology and otolaryngology, forming the roots of what is today Premier Medical.
100 years later, Premier Medical continues to lead the treatment of patients and show excellence in both care and compassion. We offer a complete line of specialty services and have an extensive staff of doctors who are board-certified ophthalmologists, optometrists and otolaryngologists. Our doctors continue the tradition begun by Dr. Perdue of leading their fields in education and research. At Premier Medical, we practice daily the work ethic and compassion demonstrated by our founders.
To celebrate 100 years of excellence, Premier Medical planted Willow Oak trees on Nov. 5 in the newly-renovated Herndon Park. “As this year approached, our doctors and staff decided to make 2015 a year of celebrations and giving back to the community,” said Gaye Butler, Marketing Director of Premier Medical. “We have served this community for 100 years, and we wanted to do something that would help to ‘plant our roots’ for another 100 years.”
James Hartman, CEO of Premier Medical said, “We are committed to continuing our heritage by working every day to become a better practice, and we hope to be able to provide excellent and compassionate care to our patients for another 100 years.”
