Patients who wish to continue care with their physician at their new locations are encouraged to contact Holston Medical Group by calling 1-877-HMG-1213 or by completing this form so that Holston Medical Group staff can contact them to establish a new account and schedule their appointments.
“The response from the community and from our patients has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Dr. David Cook, one of the physicians leading this transition. “In two weeks’ time, we have had nearly 5,000 patients complete the form online and indicate their desire to continue care with their physician. That’s what quality, compassionate care is all about; relationships. And we are fortunate to have excellent relationships with our patients that will carry forward and be supported by Holston Medical Group.”
Holston Medical Group will offer patients the convenience of online appointment scheduling, medication refill requests, secure messaging with the care team, and more through the online patient portal “MyHMG”. Holston Medical Group is known nationally for their electronic health records utilization and health information exchange, providing patients with more efficient, cost-effective care.
“We are committed to remaining in our current communities and furthering our efforts to provide cost-effective, value-based solutions for patients, meeting the medical needs of our communities,” said Ehab Sharawy, MD, another physician leading this transition. “As a physician-owned and led organization, we have a responsibility to provide the best care at an affordable cost for the communities and patients we serve. We will continue to seek opportunities to provide options in our market that best meet our patients’ needs and we are excited about our partnership with Holston Medical Group to bring new innovations to our market.”
Contracts between Holston Medical Group and major insurance companies are expected to be finalized soon. Patients will continue to have access to their provider as contracts are worked out. All patients are welcome, and the physicians are dedicated to the continuation of care for patients.
Holston Medical Group is committed to providing accurate, legally confirmed information on an ongoing basis to limit confusion for patients and the community at large.
