About Our Practice

Since 1999, StatCare has been providing high-quality, personalized pulmonary and sleep medicine services to adults in and around Knoxville, Oak Ridge, and Athens, Tennessee. The practice is one of the largest privately held hospitalist and pulmonary services groups in the nation and has accreditation from the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) as a certified center of excellence for the treatment of pulmonary hypertension. 

With a focus on improving patient experience and treatment outcomes, the board-certified physicians take an evidence-based approach to care. They also value the importance of patient education to empower individuals to stay in control of their health.

StatCare offices feature advanced diagnostic technologies to identify conditions like pulmonary fibrosis, lung nodules and masses, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The providers customize treatment plans using lifestyle changes, medications, and other non-surgical therapies to improve lung function and resolve symptoms like shortness of breath, wheezing, and fatigue.

The StatCare sleep clinic can address daytime sleepiness, cognitive issues, and other symptoms of sleep apnea, insomnia, and other sleep disorders. The outpatient sleep clinic provides resources like continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) mask fittings and referrals for dental appliances to improve nighttime breathing.

StatCare providers are always striving to improve the patient experience. They offer in-office evaluations and can also meet with patients in nursing homes, hospitals, and other care settings. The providers serve as a communication bridge between primary care providers and specialists to ensure patients have the continuous care they deserve.

In addition to scheduled appointments, StatCare offers after-hours assistance 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to address medical emergencies.

MARY W. | Feb 02, 2023
Your office is responsive to a patient’s needs. In my experience it is a unique occurrence that a call to the nurse line was returned the same day! Everyone from the person answering the phone, the nurse taking the patient information to set up the TeleHealth call, to the excellent NP who provided the TeleHealth appointment deserve a gold star. What mattered was that as a patient, my need was heard and treatment provided. Unfortunately in my experience, this is not the usual response received. Thank you for your kindness, r
