Summit Medical Group at Parkwest to merge with nearby Medical Associates


Summit Medical Group at Parkwest will have a new address, name and expanded services with the completion of a merger with another Summit Medical Group practice.

Effective Feb. 11, the practitioners and staff from Summit Medical Group at Parkwest will combine operations with Summit Medical Associates, located at 9333 Park West Blvd. The new location is just one-tenth of a mile west from the current practice. The new telephone number will be 865-531-4600.

The location will offer expanded medical services such as on-site laboratory, X-ray, behavioral health and a walk-in clinic open from 7 a.m.-3 p.m. daily. Patient perks include increased parking and an expanded waiting area.

“This move will benefit our patients in many ways and still offer such a convenient location,” said Dr. Louis Smith, managing partner of Summit Medical Associates. “We will continue to provide the same standard of care that our patients have come to expect from our team, and we now can offer expanded services on-site.”

Medical records for all Summit Medical Group at Parkwest patients will be immediately available at Summit Medical Associates.

All current practitioners at Summit Medical Group at Parkwest will make the move, including Dr. James A. Morse, Dr. John C. Showalter, Robert E. Butturini, PA-C, and Janice O. Branson, NP. The office hours are Monday-Friday, 7 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
