Eastern Shore ENT Welcomes Brian W. Hixon

Eastern Shore ENT

(Fairhope) Family tradition - indeed! Brian W. Hixon joins Eastern Shore Ear Nose & Throat Clinic this year as the fourth generation (officially at least) of Hixon physicians to serve patients of southern Alabama and northwest Florida. 

Brian is a Fairhope High School graduate, and attended Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC before earning his MD at the University of Alabama School of Medicine in Birmingham. Brian completed his internship and residency at the University of Kentucky School of Medicine in Lexington, KY. He was Board Certified by the American Academy of Otolaryngologists this spring. 

Eastern Shore ENT has offered care of the head & neck since 1985 under the leadership of partners William B. Norris, MD and Frank K. Hixon, MD. 

Before father Frank, Brian's grandfather graduated Emory School of Medicine in 1935 and practiced as a cardiologist in Pensacola, FL. His father before him was a physician in Perote, Alabama and graduated Vanderbilt School of Medicine in 1898. There's family talk of yet another generation in medicine during Civil War days as well.... An old Hixon doctor's bag – is a family treasure. 

And the medical tradition doesn’t end there. Brian just married this past April to Fairhope Urologist Lisa Bailey… who he met in medical school at UAB. In his free time, you’ll find him fishing, running or walking Gigi - his retired racing greyhound. 

Eastern Shore ENT provides comprehensive care of adult & pediatric head and neck issues including diagnosis, treatment and surgery. In addition, a full Audiology Department offers hearing and vestibular testing, hearing aid fitting & service.
