Health Matters

University Medical Center has locations all around West Alabama, offering important medical services to families who may not be capable of a trip to Tuscaloosa for doctor’s appointments.

In Carrollton in Pickens County, Dr. Cathy Lavender works for UMC Carrolton as a family physician.

“We do family medicine care from birth to 101, and we do everything related to diabetes management, hypertension management, well-child checkups,: Lavender said. “We give immunizations so children can go to school. We do everything that a family physician’s office would do.”

In addition, UMC Carrolton offers women’s health care including prenatal care and yearly wellness visits.

“We do colonoscopies, pap smears, birth control management, things like that,” Lavender said. “In addition, one day a week we have a sports medicine trained physician who comes down.”

That physician provides sports medicine and joint-focused medical care, she said.

For all your primary health care needs, visit University Medical Center with locations in Tuscaloosa, Northport, Demopolis, Fayette and Carrollton.
