Internal Medicine


If you’re an adult and you’re facing complex medical situations, you may benefit from being treated by an internal medicine physician. Ballad Health has internists at practices throughout East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia to meet your ongoing healthcare needs.

What is an internal medicine physician?

Internal medicine physicians work with nonsurgical diagnosis and treatment of diseases in adults. Like family medicine practitioners, internists are primary care physicians. However, internists are extensively trained in the treatment of complex medical conditions and may offer a more specialized area of focus within their practice.

Many of the internists at Ballad Health have years or even decades of medical experience, and we’re constantly searching out the best new internists to continue our exceptional continuum of care for years to come.

To make an appointment with one of our internal medicine doctors, please call 833-8-BALLAD.

Patient-Centered Medical Home

A patient-centered medical home is a system of care where you partner with your primary care provider, nurse, specialty providers and insurance professionals. Your health care team focuses on your needs not only when you visit the doctor’s office or a hospital, but also while you’re at home and work. Your care team members stay in touch with you and each other.

Many Ballad Health primary care offices are accredited as Level 3 Patient-Centered Medical Homes, the highest level of recognition from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). This means you’ll have a trusted team to help you make health care choices.
