After 52 years living in Birmingham, Alabama — and Greenville before that — James Fields was looking for a new doctor. When he heard about a provider that specializes in caring for older adults, he thought, “Let me try that.”

That was over a year and a half ago, and Mr. Fields has been a satisfied ArchWell Health member ever since.

He liked what he saw right from the start. He took a tour and felt impressed by the cleanliness and spaciousness of his local center, as well as the friendliness of the staff. He also appreciated the easily accessible exam tables — no climbing or hoisting required!

And his favorable first impression hasn’t wavered over time. Mr. Fields came for the focus on seniors and has stayed for the kind staff, fun activities and comprehensive care.

Primary Care That Checks All the Boxes

Since Mr. Fields has high blood pressure, his doctor works closely with him to keep the condition under control. The doctor also pays careful attention to Mr. Fields’s overall health to ensure he doesn’t develop diabetes.

The Alabama native appreciates having all his healthcare services in one location, from lab work and preventive health screenings to vaccinations, nutrition education and more. It’s like a one-stop shop for all his primary care needs.

Mr. Fields also values the ArchWell Health team’s concern for each member as a whole person. “They’ll even cut your toenails if you need them to,” he says. “I had never heard of this before.”

He adds that whatever members need, the staff does everything they can to provide it — from supplying water and snacks to hosting a variety activities each week for older adults to be active and socialize.

Fun and Engaging Events

ArchWell Health membership is a departure from Mr. Fields’s previous healthcare experiences in more ways than one. He enjoys all the perks that go beyond the traditional doctor’s office experience, including community activities and events. With fitness classes, games, educational seminars and arts and crafts, there’s something for everyone.

His favorite event so far: a game day to kick off football season, where he enjoyed delicious food and even did a little line dancing.

“I love the activities,” he says. “We have a good time, and everybody’s very supportive.”

To those who are curious about ArchWell Health, Mr. Fields offers an enthusiastic recommendation: “Check out the facility for yourself — I think you’ll be impressed.”

The ArchWell Health Difference

From the spacious lobby and waiting area to the snack stations and activity rooms, ArchWell Health centers are not like other doctor’s offices. And with a wide range of quality primary care services and preventive health screenings, older adults can get the care they need in one convenient location. Plus, the in-center activities and events offer an easy way to connect with others and enhance mental, emotional and physical health.
