Who We Are



Founded by Dr. Misal Khan in 1978, Springfield Medical Center was created to ensure the people of Northwest Florida had access to quality primary care. There was a severe shortage of primary care doctors during that time and the mayor of Springfield at the time Buddy Maclemore recruited Dr. Misal Khan to start his practice in Springfield. Our practice quickly grew with patients driving for one and two hours to receive the care they needed. Over the years Panama City has grown, with an estimated 170,000 people in 2011, and we have grown with it with the addition of Dr. Ashraf Khan and Kaylyn Khan FNP to our practice in July 2013 we have solidified our practices’ future for the next 30 years.
