Our Practice


Fairhope Family Medicine is staffed by a dynamic group of people, who work together, as a team, to help our patients achieve excellent health.  We promote​ patient/staff relationships and continuity so we can positively and profoundly effect patient's health and well being. Our goal is to be your medical home and coordinate your medical care.


Dr. Andrade founded the practice in January 2007.  The office was originally located on Spring Run Drive in Fairhope and moved to it’s current location December of 2008.  From the staff who answers the phone, right up to the doctors, we strive to provide efficient, quality medical care to help patients of all ages maintain good health.  While the faces seen in the office may change from time to time, the ultimate goal of all employees is to provide the best care for patients.
