Family Medicine

Overview

One of the keys to keeping families healthy is a great family medicine physician. That’s why Ballad Health offers conveniently located practices throughout Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia staffed with exceptional family medicine physicians and experts.

What is a family medicine physician?

A family medicine physician treats patients of all ages and is usually the starting point for most patients who require medical treatment or health care.

Family medicine doctors treat a wide range of conditions and help patients optimally “manage” their overall health. Preventive care and wellness checkups, such as annual physicals, screening tests and immunizations, diagnosis and treatment of illnesses and injuries, and many other common procedures are typically performed by family medicine physicians in a comfortable office setting.

The family medicine physicians at Ballad Health are skilled in treating a full range of conditions and illnesses. Many of the family medicine physicians in these local medical practices call the East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia region home, having cared for their hometown communities for years or even decades.

Ballad Health is also constantly searching out the most skilled new family physicians to continue its exceptional continuum of care for years to come.

To make an appointment with one of our family 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.
