About Dr. Kevin Metzger
Dr. Kevin Metzger took an interest in science and sports early on in life and knew he wanted to find a way to incorporate both into his career. Throughout his time in high school, Dr. Metzger experienced football injuries that ultimately introduced and led him to learn more about the sports medicine world. He says, “During residency, I worked with many sports medicine physicians in the area. With experience and knowledge in primary care and sports medicine, I wanted to be able to pursue both and that’s when I noticed the model that HMG had created for their sports medicine physicians.”
Dr. Kevin Metzger obtained his Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science and Sports Medicine at Campbellsville University (Campbellsville, KY), his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine at University of Pikeville-Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine (Pikeville, KY), and completed his residency in Family Medicine at East Tennessee State University (Johnson City, TN). During his fellowship, Dr. Metzger worked at Mountain Area Health Education Center in Asheville, NC and was a team physician for University of North Carolina at Asheville.
During his residency at ETSU, Dr. Kevin Metzger fell in love with the Tri-Cities region and decided that Johnson City was the place he wanted to be. Dr. Metzger, his wife Meredith, and his one-year-old son, Lincoln recently relocated to Johnson City permanently. In their free time, they enjoy being involved in their church, volunteering time to the medical response team and children’s ministry. They also enjoy outdoor activities, such as going to Founder’s Park and enjoying other outdoor activities that the Tri-Cities has to offer.
