We currently have 25 healthcare providers, three social workers, and a team of nurses and medical assistants whose job it is to assist our patients in becoming healthier individuals.

- Lab Services
- Treadmill Stress Tests
- Splints and Casts
- Dermatological Procedures
- Women's Health Procedures
If you need to be treated by a specialist, or require additional imaging services, we will work to provide excellent coordination of your medical care by tracking these additional services and collaborating with other medical professionals to maintain a complete record of your care.
SERVING THE UNDERINSURED & UNINSURED
From the time we opened in 2004 we made the decision to never turn away a patient due to inability to pay. We have held to our promise even when unemployment in the area went from 3% to 15% and more patients found themselves without insurance.” —Dr. John Waits
Cahaba Medical Care provides high-quality health services regardless of a patient’s ability to pay. We offer a discounted, sliding fee scale based on income and family size. How are we able to do this? Through a rigorous process, we have earned the designation of federally qualified health center (FQHC). This gives us special considerations from the federal government in the form of grants and reimbursements.
Cahaba Medical Care Mission
Cahaba Medical Care is a local community-based health organization that aims to be an incarnation of love, peace, and justice by guiding our patients through their journey towards physical, mental, and social well-being, and to be a center for transformational medical education and primary care training in a rural and international context, modeling and exhorting the next generation of medical professionals in a career of excellence, conscientiousness, and compassion.
Our mission statement flows from our affirmation that our purpose is to love God and show his glory by walking in the steps of Jesus and ministering the love of Christ.
