Summit Medical Associates

Summit Medical Associates is proud to announce that Jennifer McMillen, M.D., has joined the staff of one of East Tennessee’s largest primary care providers and home to the hundreds of other caring and compassionate healthcare professionals who are all committed to providing the highest and most professional level of healthcare available. Raised in the Dickson, Tennessee area, Jennifer made the decision early in her life to follow in the footsteps of her father, a practicing family physician, for more than 30 years.

“I remember as a little girl going to work with my father,” said Dr. McMillen. “I loved every moment. I remember how much I admired him for his compassion and caring nature and the positive impact on the people in our community. It was also gratifying to observe how grateful his patients were for all his efforts on their behalf. This life-changing experience led to my decision to become a physician, like my father, and to serve my community.”

Dr. McMillen received her Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry and Cellular and Molecular Biology degree from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. After earning her Doctor of Medicine credentials, she completed her residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Tennessee Medical Center.

“With all my experiences and the many lifelong relationships I’ve developed, I decided to make Knoxville my home, along with my husband of six years, a clinical pharmacist, and my two boys, ages one and three,” said Dr. McMillen. “Summit Medical Group offered a diversity of experience for me as an internist, as well as an unparalleled commitment to providing the highest level of patient care available. Most importantly, I’m blessed with the opportunity to provide optimal care to the individuals of my community. With Summit’s mission of providing quality care, value, and service to its community, it reminds me of how my journey began as a little girl longing to follow in my father’s footsteps. I’m truly grateful for the opportunity to work alongside the many other caring healthcare professionals here.”

In addition to Dr. McMillen, there are 10 physicians and three Nurse Practitioners on staff, including Jerome McKenzie, M.D., Robert N. Montgomery, M.D., William B. Robinson III, M.D., Edward F.M. Good, M.D., Ted R. Stallings, M.D., Louis A. Smith, M.D., Udit Chaudhuri, M.D., J. Thomas Kirby, M.D., Hollis J. Cotton, M.D., Ketan S. Hira, D.O., Angela Brewer, N.P., Debra S. Rose, N.P., and Emily A. Montgomery, N.P. Medical Associates also has Clinical Health Psychologists and a pharmacist on-site to discuss medication questions. Patient classes are also available, including a diabetes education class at this location.
