Now Seeing Patients in Springfield Office

Our commitment to transforming healthcare for local children continues to grow. As part of that growth and to meet the evolving needs of our community, Dr. Bailey Alford and Jana Marks, CPNP, will see young patients exclusively in the Springfield location of Effingham Family Medicine.

About Dr. Alford

Dr. Bailey Alford completed a three-year pediatric residency with Memorial University Medical Center in Savannah. Prior to that she received her Doctorate of Medicine from Mercer University School of Medicine. She also holds a B.S. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, with a Chemistry minor, from Mercer University, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude with University Honors. Dr. Alford has worked with community programs, including Parent University and Early Learning College in Savannah, where she served as an instructor.

This is a “coming home” for Dr. Alford, who grew up in Guyton. “I grew up in Effingham.” says Dr. Alford. “The opportunity to work with Effingham Health System to provide medical care for the next generation of children in my own home town is as good as it gets!”
