About Summit:

Summit Medical Group was formed in 1995 by 35 Knoxville physicians who had been in the practice of internal medicine and family practice for up to 40 years. These physicians had similar ideals, practice standards, and a desire to improve their ability to better serve their patients and to be successful in the practice of medicine.

With the framework of this common vision and the strength of pooled resources, Summit Medical Group has become the largest and most widespread organization in the provision of primary care in the East Tennessee region.

Summit offers an ideal work/life balance. Physicians are able to see their patients without worrying about all of the back office stresses that can occur in a private practice group but still have the opportunity for leadership and have a hand in the future of their practice. 

Currently, Summit Medical Group has over 300 providers at more than 80 office locations in 14 counties in the East Tennessee region. Summit “has come a long way” since its inception and will continue to be creative and innovative in service. Summit is moving ahead in other areas as well, including cooperation with its community hospital partners in meeting primary care needs. Summit’s dedication to service and excellence remains a prime motivation in providing for the needs of those who entrust their health to Summit physicians.

Make the Summit Advantage yours.
