Top Ophthalmologists in Dothan

A History of Quality, All-Inclusive Care

We have had the pleasure of bettering vision in the Dothan, Alabama community for almost 40 years! Drs. Marnix Heersink and John Fortin opened Eye Center South in 1980 and quickly expanded to accommodate a wide variety of eye care needs with the latest technology. Our dedication to providing unmatched health care prompted the inclusion of an outpatient surgery and hearing center.
