Our Interprofessional Team
ETSU Health Family Medicine provides health care for all ages at three clinic locations in the Tri-Cities.
At each of our clinics, a team of health care professionals works together to show you the best ways to improve and maintain your health. Our team will treat you as a whole person. We even take care of you when you are admitted to the hospital.
Our Team is made up of:
Family Physicians are primary care physicians trained to provide continuing and complete health care for the individual and the family. Our physicians include:
- Faculty Physicians who are board certified and licensed to practice medicine. They provide medical services
to patients in the office, hospital, and nursing homes. They also devote time to teaching
residents and medical students, medical research, and community service.
- Resident Physicians who are physicians who have graduated from medical school and are pursuing advanced training in Family Medicine. They also provide medical care in the office, hospital, and nursing homes, and provide community services, all under the supervision of our faculty physicians.
A Psychologist provides psychosocial services and counseling to patients, teaches medical students and residents, and conducts research.
A Pharmacist provides diabetic education along with medication management therapy.
A Medical Social Worker who provides services to patients and instructs medical students and residents.
Our health care team also includes Nurses. Physicians from other medical specialties are available on a consultative basis.
