Trinity recently welcomed Dr. Katie Tipton to our physician staff. She is board certified in Internal Medicine. As such, when she is participates in the after-hours call schedule she will be on-call for patients 17 years of age and older. One of the other physicians will be on-call for patients under 17 years of age on a rotating basis on those days.
We have updated our after-hours call system to allow patients to choose to connect with the adult or pediatric patient on call physician as needed.
All access to the on-call physicians can be now be obtained through the main office number of 865-539-0270. The previous on-call number will forward to the new number for a period of time then be disconnected.
