Say Goodbye to Assembly Line Medicine

You may have to take a number and stand in line at the Department of Motor Vehicles, but you don’t have to settle for the assembly line-like experience growing so common nowadays.

Advances in medical science in the United States have dramatically enhanced life expectancies from 54.1 years in 1918 to 78.9 years in 2020.  However, these revolutionary advances in medicine have come at an enormous financial and personal cost to patients as many rural hospitals are forced to close their doors and urban hospitals and medical centers are forced to consolidate or face going out of business.  Today only one-third of physicians are still in private practice, and it is estimated that only 50% of our current health system will remain in place during the next decade.

If you’re the type of individual who truly values your relationships with your medical providers once so prevalent in the healthcare community, it’s easy to appreciate your concern for the future as medical care becomes increasingly driven by bottom lines – often at the expense of you, the patient.   

Fortunately, a growing number of private practice medical providers are pushing back against these managed care, socialized medical models so common in Europe and elsewhere today.

Launched in 2016 by husband and wife team, Scott Gallian, MD, MBA, and U.S. Air Force veteran, and Lauren Gallian, FNP-BC, Gallian Medical Group in nearby Hardin Valley offers a fresh and totally new approach to providing caring and compassionate, full-service primary care to their patients, unlike the socialized medicine trends that so much of our healthcare system has embarked on. Complete with in-house diagnostic lab, EKG, and X-ray services, Gallian Medical Group offers their patients a level of medical excellence that’s becoming increasingly more difficult to find today.

What patients appreciate the most about Gallian Medical Group is a level of compassionate caring that they remember from their past. Gone are the “bus station-like” waiting room experiences and “steeple chase-like” visits with your healthcare provider. What remains is a team of dedicated medical professionals who are totally committed to your individual healthcare needs in a caring, compassionate, and unrushed environment.

We trust that you are going to enjoy this month’s issue of Everything Knoxville and our interview with Scott Gallian, MD, and Family Nurse Practitioner, Lauren Gallian, FNC-BC, and the newest member of the Gallian healthcare team, Family Nurse Practitioner, Gina Bearden, FNC-BC. We believe that at Gallian Medical Group, you will rediscover an entirely new level of personalized healthcare that you might have thought no longer existed.

EK: You have all experienced today’s socialized medical trends firsthand as providers. Describe your experiences and how they helped you to envision a new future for your patients at Gallian Medical Group.

Scott: In the outpatient setting, we felt as if our employers were dictating the level of care and not the patient in consultation with their physician. At Gallian Medical Group, we put the focus back on the patient and provide them with the time needed to fully describe their symptoms and to treat them. We don’t lock our patients into 15 minute blocks of time.

EK: How have your patients responded to the level of care they receive at Gallian Medical Group?

Lauren: They thoroughly enjoy it. They don’t like being rushed or ignored. I think most of our new patients are surprised at our more measured approach to healthcare. Accustomed as they are to the assembly line medical treatments they experience elsewhere, they are often surprised to discover that we take the time to really listen to them. They genuinely appreciate the fact that we desire to have a meaningful provider/patient relationship with them. Patients who wish to be more proactive in achieving their optimum level of health really enjoy their new provider/patient relationships.

EK: I guess another indication of your success is the fact that your are currently expanding your medical facility to meet the needs of your growing group of patients. Tell us about your expansion plans.

Scott: We’re grateful to our growing number of new patients, for their trust in us and their support and encouragement. To meet this growing patient base and the additional providers, we are currently expanding our medical facility. We are adding 1,500 additional square feet of exam rooms, provider offices, and nurse work centers. Our new addition is scheduled to be complete in October.

EK: Gina, as the newest addition to the Gallian Medical Group healthcare team, tell our readers a little bit about yourself.

Gina: My family moved to Tennessee from Michigan when I was eight. I attended nursing school at Tennessee State University and earned my master’s degree from Vanderbilt University. I have worked as an ICU nurse and have 20 years of experience as a Nurse Practitioner, with a decade of that practicing in Endocrinology.

EK: What most influenced your decision to join the Gallian Medical Group team?

Gina: Like the entire team at Gallian, I practice evidence-based medicine and feel passionate about treating the patient as a whole – truly listening to them and getting to the root of their problem. Like my fellow team members, I am extremely thorough and detailed in my management and want the patient to feel comfortable and confident in their care, but, most importantly, I want to show compassion to each patient. I look forward to making a valuable contribution to Gallian Medical Group and their family of patients throughout our East Tennessee community.

EK: What services do you provide at Gallian Medical Group?

Lauren: We provide evidence-based primary care for patients age 12 and up. We have our own lab and X-ray machine. We also perform EKGs and spirometry services. We offer preventative care and immunizations, chronic disease management, hypertension management, nutrition and wellness management, diabetes management, physicals, and a variety of other services. Our hours are Monday through Friday from 7 am to 6 pm. Same-day appointments are available. We also offer Telemedicine for your convenience.

EK: Because you’re a private practice medical practice facility, in what other ways do your patients benefit?

Scott: Choice is clearly an important way in which our patients benefit. If they need a service we can’t provide, then they are free to go wherever they like. They can choose any specialist, any hospital, any other ancillary service they want – not just the ones under a certain corporate umbrella. Patients also want a provider they can stay with for life, not someone that will move on after the provider’s contract expires or if the corporate employer makes decisions affecting the doctor-patient relationship. Patients want their provider, not a replacement or substitute. We plan on being here for many years to come.

EK: Unlike other area healthcare providers that experience high staff turnover, your team has been with you for a number of years. How important is this to your patients?

Lauren: Extremely important. Our staff is a big reason for our success. We feel the patient’s relationship with our staff is as important as the patient’s relationship with us. Our staff is like family to us.

EK: What is a typical patient wait time?

Lauren: Most of the time less than 15 minutes. Rarely more than 30 minutes.

EK: You appear to attract a great many Medicare patients. Why is that?

Scott: Medicare patients are a special population. They generally have more healthcare needs and have higher expectations than other groups of patients. They usually are more in tune with their health than a younger person and more self-educated about their health. We want them to know we’re here to meet their expectations and provide the quality care they deserve in order to achieve their optimal level of health and well-being.

EK: What other types of insurance do you accept?

Scott: Almost all commercial insurances, Medicare, and Medicare Advantage plans. We don’t discriminate based on a patient’s insurance status.

EK: How can people learn more about Gallian Medical Group?

Lauren: Our website is www.gallianmedical.com. We also encourage people to visit our Facebook page.

EK: In closing, is there anything else you would like to add?

Scott: We want your readers to know that we will go the extra mile to ensure they have a truly wonderful healthcare experience, the type of experience they might have thought no longer existed in today’s steeple-chase medical marketplace.

Premiere Consignment


Why Not Update Your Home Without Busting Your Budget?

Americans are discovering many innovative ways to update their homes without the added cost, inconvenience, mess, or disruption of a major renovation. By updating lighting, cabinet drawer pulls and door handles, new window treatments, and a thorough cleaning and painting, you can create that showcase look you’ve been dreaming of.

Another way to achieve that updated look is to add a new accent chair, sofa or loveseat, dining table, art, décor, or perhaps an Oriental rug. Thanks to Premiere Consignment in nearby and convenient Tellico Village, you’ll discover many of the items that you’ve been looking for at incredible savings.

One of the most important features of being located within the heart of the Tellico Lake area is the opportunity to secure furniture, art, home décor items, and Oriental rugs from many of the area’s most luxurious homes. Also, because most of their consignors have relocated to communities such as Tellico Village and Rarity Bay from all across the country, they are able to offer you a large selection of items purchased by these same homeowners from all across the nation. Perhaps that’s why Premiere Consignment is frequented by many of the area’s top interior designers and decorators.

Currently they have an excellent collection of dining room furniture, sofas, loveseats, and recliners. You’ll also discover Oriental rugs, lighting, home décor, art items, and florals.

Another feature that’s popular with both their consignors and retail customers is how quickly they turn their showroom inventory. Customers appreciate it because the selection is greater, and consignors appreciate it because their sale items are on the retail sales floor sooner.

Marsh Wealth Management


Don’t Let the New SECURE Act Rules Take 40% of Your IRA

By Yvonne Marsh, CFP®, CPA

A gentleman in his late 60s came to see me recently and told me that his beloved father had left him an IRA worth just over $1 million.  He told me how he had already filled out the forms to withdraw the money and use it to pay off his house, take a trip, and give some money to his own kids and grandkids.  And then he wanted help investing the rest of the money for his own retirement.  I asked him a question that caught him by surprise: “Did you budget for the $400,000 in taxes you just triggered by taking a lump sum withdrawal of the entire account?”  Sadly, he had not realized that the IRA withdrawal was taxable income.  I had to tell him that the IRS doesn’t allow us to “un-ring” the bell, put the money back, and draw it out more slowly instead.  There are no do-overs with inherited IRAs.

I can see the potential for new tax mishaps under the SECURE Act that was enacted in 2019, which now requires beneficiaries to empty the inherited IRA account by the end of 10th year following the year of death.  Within that 10-year period, there is total flexibility – withdraw it all or withdraw none.  I fear that the years might blur and heirs inadvertently lose track of how long it’s been and accidentally miss the deadline.  Because if they empty the account on the first day of the 11th year, there is a 50% penalty on the late withdrawal PLUS income tax owed.  A $1 million IRA would have a $500,000 penalty and a $400,000 income tax bill, leaving the heirs with $100,000.  Crazy, isn’t it?

On the plus side, the 10-year period is a great tax planning opportunity, allowing an heir to take large distributions in some years and none in others, using the flexibility allowed within that time period to their advantage, minimizing the amount of tax ultimately paid.

The SECURE Act has raised the urgency of tax planning and ongoing advice. First, IRA account owners need their named beneficiary designations set up correctly to give heirs the option of the 10-year window, and second, the heirs need professional ongoing advice to minimize their tax bill and avoid needless penalties.  Navigating the nuances of inherited IRAs is not for the faint of heart – and there are no do-overs.

As part of our wealth management services, we help our clients successfully navigate these intricate IRA rules.  Our clients don’t spend their free time reading the complex tax code, because we do it for them! Peace of mind is priceless.  Join us for a 30 minute Zoom webinar on Wednesday, September 16, at 10:30 am to learn more about how you can protect yourself from unintentional mistakes and use the SECURE Act IRA requirements to your advantage.  Email bethany@marshpros.com and she’ll send you the link to register.

Aqua Clear Water Systems


Leaking copper pipe with jets of water under pressure

Do You Have Pinhole Leaks? It Might Be Your Water…

By David Brewster, Owner of Aqua Clear Water Systems, LLC

I have heard pinhole leaks are a huge pain. Not from personal experience, but from the clients I have worked with. Stories of massive floods, ripping out drywall, hidden mold growing behind the wall, and 10k-20k re-plumbing jobs having to be done. And the sad part is most people think it’s just their old plumbing, and there is no alternative but to invest in totally gutting the plumbing. Luckily, we have saved many clients from turning their home into a job site by fixing the water that travels through those old pipes.

Chlorine is corrosive to copper. It reacts with the copper to create a chemical compound: Copper chloride. This compound can slowly attack copper from the inside, which results in those tiny but destructive pinhole leaks. Also, hard water, an abundance of calcium/magnesium, can erode copper pipes if a hot water recirculation pump is installed.

Kinetico water systems remove the chlorine, chloramines, and hardness that can attack copper pipes. We also add a special coating filter, after the Kinetico system, to recoat the copper plumbing from the years of damage. After installing hundreds of Kinetico Systems to fix our clients’ pinhole leak issues, we can say with 100% certainty that it works.

We’ve been saving our valued clients from 10k-20k re-plumbing jobs and from turning their home into a job site. And not only did they save their plumbing, but they also get all the other benefits of installing a Kinetico whole house water filtration system. We are so confident that we have a turn-key pinhole leak prevention system that we will refund your investment if it doesn’t stop your pinhole leak problem. Call or text 865-986-4234 to schedule your free pinhole leak assessment, and get your questions answered.

Invisalign: The Clear Alternative to Braces

If you find yourself comparing your smile to others whose smiles exhibit beautiful, straight, white teeth, then perhaps it’s time you discovered just how easy it can be to achieve a whiter, brighter smile. After all, how many of those people whose smiles you envy were actually born with that perfect smile? Probably not many.

Let’s consider teeth straightening first.  Did you know that there is a procedure – in fact, the most advanced teeth straightening system available anywhere – that has already helped more than six million people achieve straighter, more natural looking smiles? Called Invisalign, these transparent aligners incrementally adjust your teeth without the use of wire braces.

Invisalign is the world’s most advanced clear aligner. By combining 20 years of research and data from six million smiles, you can trust Invisalign to deliver the smile that you deserve.

Invisalign is a modern, fully digitized experience designed to help you achieve the smile you want, the way you want it. Unlike other competitive clear aligners, Invisalign aligners use a proprietary SmartTrack® material that offers treatment times that are up to 50% faster. Patients report that Invisalign aligners fit and feel better. Also, innovations in the Invisalign procedure move more smiles, with greater predictability and control than competitive aligners.

Perhaps what you will appreciate most about the Invisalign system is that it is administered and supervised by your family dentist and not some third party dentist or orthodontist who will recommend your treatment without ever having met you. After all, who knows you better than your family dentist?

To learn how Invisalign can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted, call Heritage Family Dentistry at 865-816-9211 today to schedule your no-cost, no-obligation evaluation.

Closets for Mckenry


Prepping for the School Year with Organization
By Carrie McConkey, www.carriemcconkey.com

“Getting organized” is something we all know we should do, but often the activity gets pushed aside to make room for more pressing priorities. Perhaps we need to move the endeavor up the list. Clearing clutter, creating systems, and developing routines can reduce stress and ward off depression – useful benefits in times such as these. And for children experiencing a very different academic school year, getting organized can be a lifesaver.

Room to Think
An environment freed of clutter allows a child to focus on the task at hand – be it schoolwork or renewing playtime. Having the space to spread out with a project creates feelings of safety, security, and clarity. And family schedules can progress smoother when storage zones are designated and regularly maintained, allowing everyone to find what they need, when they need it. Establish fun incentives for your child to regularly go through their room, backpack, etc., putting things back where they belong and discarding or donating items they no longer need or use.

All Systems Go
Creating systems is another form of organization that teaches children how to streamline regularly occurring activities. Closet organization makes it easier to get dressed in the morning, and using a calendar to keep track of assignments and special school events prevents those dreaded “day of” surprises. A whiteboard can list reminders, reachable goals, and to-dos. And encouraging your child to proactively add needed supplies, food, or other items to the family shopping list can teach them how to anticipate and plan ahead.

Step One, Two, Three
In times of uncertainty and distraction, established routines can offer a sense of peace, normalcy, and direction. Routines teach organization through a set of established steps, calming children through repetition and giving them the triggers they need to perform a task. A designated quiet place to study can ready him or her to begin their homework, just as washing their hands can prepare them for a meal. A 10-minute evening routine of tidying, making sure lunch ingredients are on hand, and laying out any needed school supplies and homework can give everyone a head start on the following day.

In this climate of upheaval and change, the simple concept of organization can provide a school year advantage for children and equip them with skills that will last a lifetime. Call Closets by McKenry for imaginative organization solutions that will benefit the entire family.

Because we’re spending more time around the house nowadays, many Americans are learning to fully appreciate their homes.

And our beautifully landscaped patios and gardens offer the peace and tranquility that often alludes us with our hectic career and family schedules.

But despite these wonderful features of our homes that we are coming to enjoy more, you no doubt have become increasingly more focused on certain areas of your home that might have become a source of growing frustration for you. Are you going on a hunt to get dressed each morning? Does your car even fit in the garage? Do the doors stay closed in the laundry and pantry because the spaces just don’t work?

How can one family have accumulated so much “STUFF” you ask yourself? Well, the solution to your “STUFF” issues may be easier than you might expect: Closets by McKenry.

Chris firmly believes that bringing order and organization to our surroundings can enhance our lives and reduce stress.

It is the place that affects your entire day.”

Chris always asks many questions to make sure everything that needs a place has a place, and he loves bringing a smile to a client’s face.

“You have many choices when selecting a closet and storage company,” said Chris. “But what really successfully differentiates Closets by McKenry in the minds of our customers is our love in taking care of them and going that extra mile.”

Make Your Home More Stay-cation & Work from Home Friendly


Understandably, most of us are spending considerably more time at home than we have at any other time in the past. As a result, many of us are updating, or planning to update, our home’s interiors and out-of-door living spaces as we facilitate this year’s stay-cation and work from home plans.

Garden centers are bursting with homeowners tidying up existing planting areas or creating entirely new ones. Homeowners are night-scaping their homes with exterior LED landscape lighting to create an exciting new nighttime look. Old concrete driveways are being replaced with beautiful multi-colored, variable sized pavers, further highlighted with beautiful geometric paver patterns. We’re painting inside and out, installing lawn irrigation systems, replacing screened porches with four-season rooms, hardscaping patios and adding built-in grills, ice-makers, and refrigerators. The sky’s the limit as we reallocate 2020’s planned vacation spending to investments in our home to make them more stay-cation and work-at-home friendly.   

At Amish Elegance in Knoxville, East Tennessee’s number one source for beautifully hand-crafted Amish furniture, we would like to share with you some exciting new ways that we can help you enhance your stay-cation and work from home plans.

For every other room in your home, we offer everything imaginable. That’s because most everything we sell, we create. We are your true all-custom source for all of your furniture needs. Why settle for showroom floor furniture from the big box stores when you can have exactly what you want, and at a price that may surprise you?

Most Amish Elegance visitors are surprised to discover that today’s Amish furniture is available in nearly every style imaginable. Hand-crafted from 100% solid American hardwoods, your furniture will be produced using the wood species you select, custom ordered to your exact specifications, with your choice of stains and finishes.
