Physician Profile


Although I’m originally from Georgia, I fell in love with the mountains and the people of this area. I wanted to become a provider in this field because I enjoy caring for and interacting with people, and I also appreciate the complexity of adults. My personal philosophy for treating my patients is to prevent disease and maintain a high quality of life. It is important to listen because my patients have the benefit of observing themselves from without and within; I, on the other hand, can only observe from the outside. I have a wife, two daughters and three grandchildren. I relax by playing golf, fishing, exercising, reading or skiing. I am a member of First Methodist Church, the American College of Physicians and the Tennessee Medical Association.
