Independent medical practices, like the rest of the healthcare industry is suffering, as consumers turn to large institutions and insurance driven solutions for their primary care needs. In order to combat the trend, we needed to create a reason for consumers to obtain quality, affordable healthcare without the red tape and hassle. Believing strongly that sustainable primary care has an important place in our healthcare system, we decided to do things differently. Our solution is The Town Doctor®, an improved design to restore the relationship with patients, and provide an opportunity to communicate and care for consumers proactively, and right at the point of purchase. It’s not just about providing primary care, but recognizing the vital, and complementary roles that each part of us plays. By creating solutions and nourishing people without the rush, The Town Doctor® understands caring for people isn’t just something we do –it’s who we are. Getting to know people uniquely and designing care to help them reach their peak performance is rewarding for all of us.
Our direct primary care model disrupts the status quo and traditional shopping of healthcare by transforming stagnant care into an exceptional experience that breathes life into both people, families and the doctor that takes care of them. We are a sustainable primary care oasis who believes in educating healthcare consumers of their choices, and our belief is that proper care starts first when built on a relationship with a clinician who knows you well. Our practice focuses’ on people, and intentionally putting health before medicine. At the top of our priorities is the stewardship of our bodies, our healthcare dollars and the overall health of our practice.
One of our goals is to help educate a future generation of physicians, while providing top-class care to both our children and grandchildren. To support a healthy clinician-patient relationship, we provide many ways to connect so you too can feel like you have a ‘doctor in the family’. We wouldn’t want it any other way, and continue to refine the model to push family-friendly direct primary care practices to new levels of expertise. We invite you to join our mission to develop high performing, economically enhancing primary care. We work hard, play hard, and believe that what we are doing is worthwhile, life-giving, and important to growing healthy communities.
At The Town Doctor, we’re more than just your doctor. We’re your neighbor. And since we live the area, more of the money you spend stays in our local community, while the money we help you save is kept in your pocket. Consumer response has been strongly positive, as the impact of our care changes the landscape and design of their health, wellness and the way they pay for it. Your support of The Town Doctor® makes our community a better place to live, and we thank you for that.
This is our story. We have the time to hear yours.
"By far the best medical care I've ever received. The entire staff goes beyond normal standards to help you in any way to better your health. It has truly been a blessing getting to know The Town Doctor and all its staff. They have gotten me thru some pretty bad health problems in the past two years. I feel like they were there for me professionally and personally. They are like family now, and I love that." - M.B.
"Being new to Lebanon, my wife and I were recommended to The Town Doctor. After our initial appointments we could not be more thrilled with Dr Steve’s and his team. The care, service, and follow up was terrific and we look forward to them taking care of our medical needs for a long time. As early retirees without traditional health insurance their care model is perfect for us. Combined with their expertise, service, and follow up we are delighted we found them. Top notch health care providers." -R.C.

"This place is phenomenal! My husband seen Dr. Steves for his primary doctor and his staff was ALWAYS very nice, and welcoming. My husband has a lot of medical issues and he is very hard to please because he has had so many bad, careless doctors, BUT he still to this day talks about how great The Town Doctor is. He wishes he could still see him but we ended up moving out of Tennessee. If you are looking for a doctor and you are on the fence, then just do it. Don't think twice about this facility. The entire staff is remarkable!"-D.S.
