Summit physician Jeff Easterly joining new practice

Dr. Jeff Easterly is marking his tenth year of practice by moving to Summit Medical Group at Northshore, where he hopes the location will provide convenient access for the residents of West Knoxville as well as Alcoa, Maryville and Blount County.

A primary care physician, Easterly cared for patients in Blount County and served as staff physician at Blount Memorial Hospital before he joined Summit Medical Group about three years ago to staff its West Urgent Care Clinic. His areas of medical interest are well represented in a family practice: adult medicine, pediatrics, women’s health and sports medicine.

The new physician office is conveniently located at Pellissippi Parkway and Northshore Drive.

“The practice will be an answer to the increased demand for quality health care in the fast-growing Bluegrass community and surrounding areas,” Easterly said. “The new office underscores our commitment to bring the best healthcare to the community and it will provide an attractive and comfortable setting for our patients to be served in.”

Easterly is proud to be affiliated with Summit Medical Group because of its ability to offer patients the comprehensive services of a cutting-edge medical center. “The combination of highly trained staff, onsite laboratory testing, advanced diagnostic imaging and easy access for patients all adds up to cohesive, coordinated care for our patients,” Easterly said.

Easterly has a very personal interest and involvement in pediatrics. He and wife Jennifer were expecting their fourth daughter in early June. The couple already has a 6-year-old daughter and a set of 14-month-old twin girls.

A Tennessee native, Easterly earned his medical degree from the James H. Quillen College of Medicine. He completed his internship and residency at the University of Tennessee Medical Center and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Family Medicine. When not caring for patients, he enjoys hiking, church activities, golf and spending time with his family.

Summit Medical Group Northshore is at 1924 Pinnacle Pointe Way, near the Kroger store at Pellissippi Parkway and Northshore Drive. The phone number is 865-584-5762.
