drdSouthern Eye Specialists is a new, state of the art facility offering medical and surgical eye care to patients of all ages. After years of working with a large multi- specialty practice, Dr. Andrew Dannemann wanted to get back to the basics with a small, intimate, patient friendly practice designed with their specific needs in mind. Our office is conveniently located, has plenty of parking and is designed to allow patients easy access throughout the whole examination process.

The entire staff is patient friendly, and we strive to make even the most difficult situation better. Patients with limited mobility or handicaps, or are wheelchair bound can easily be accommodated. Dr. Dannemann started practice in New Hampshire, but came to Dothan in 1992 and has been here ever since. He is Board Certified and began his training in New York. His Fellowship in glaucoma was performed at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.

Glaucoma is a long term, chronic condition. Education of patients is critical to enlist their help in controlling their condition. Dr. Dannemann takes pride in the fact that as much time as necessary can be spent with each patient to completely explain their condition and treatment options before starting any regimen. No patient will be made to feel that they have not had enough time to ask questions about their condition.

Although glaucoma is the focus of Southern Eye Specialists, we also offer long term care of patients with macular degeneration, cataracts, hypertension, neuro-ophthalmic and all other systemic medical conditions. We also offer in office minor procedures and have a laser suite for glaucoma, retinal and other procedures. All insurances are accepted. Southern Eye Specialists is open from 7:30-4:30 Monday through Thursday and 7:30-2:30 on Friday.

The staff of Southern Eye Specialists is also a point of pride. They are  JCAHPO certified with a combined experience of over 35 years. They are as well known to our patients as Dr. Dannemann. Dr. Dannemann and his wife Ingrid, who is also the office manager, are kept busy outside of their practice with their five boys and a growing extended family. They are active at Covenant United Methodist Church.
