When people are asked, “What’s important in a doctor?” It’s interesting that their answers vary to some degree, but certain characteristics are mentioned more than others and remain consistent throughout the years. It seems that most people are looking for intelligence, friendliness, and experience, along with the all-important attribute of bedside manner in those who provide their healthcare services.

HealthStar Physicians, P.C. has long been a beacon of these qualities in the Lakeway Area. September of 2020 marked 25 years for the company, which celebrates a rich history over its quarter-century tenure of serving residents throughout the region.

Founded in the Lakeway area in 1995, the group has grown to include more than 400 staff members, over 100 medical providers, and locations across five counties in East Tennessee. While internal and primary care were the organization’s original focus, Healthstar also celebrates the ability to offer an array of care options to its patients today. Providers for Healthstar boast specialties including dermatology, neurology, pediatrics, otolaryngology, orthopedics, podiatry, among others. Healthstar practices currently welcome patients from birth through geriatrics for care.

Healthstar patients benefit not only from a wide range of healthcare services and highly trained, board certified providers, but from cutting-edge technology and nationally certified labs—a combination of resources that has proven to be an asset to the diverse patient population Healthstar serves.

The group also boasts services including after-hours clinics, diagnostic imagining, a full-service laboratory, and a sleep center, as well as a medical spa.

Healthstar Physicians has met the challenge of 2020, its 25th year, with new and innovative services including telehealth appointments, and events including drive-through flu shot clinics in an effort to continue to provide quality primary and specialty care even throughout the Corona Virus Pandemic. In addition, Healthstar Physicians and their staff and providers have made concerted efforts to give even more to the community by supporting non-profit organizations and initiatives including Food on Foot, Helping Hands Medical Clinic, and First Love on Main throughout the year. The group’s efforts to continue providing services and to help keep the community healthy during such a turbulent season certainly have not gone unnoticed by their patients: the practice recently won dual 2020 Citizen Tribune People’s Choice Awards for Best Walk-in Clinic and Best Secretary, honoring Morristown-based employee Pam Hurst.

As Healthstar Physicians moves forward into the next 25 years, the organization strives to remain focused on the goal of providing what is important to their patients: friendliness and a welcoming attitude, experience that puts patients at ease and assures high-quality healthcare encounters, and a bedside manner that translates to patients feeling confident in Healthstar Physicians, P.C. as their medical home.

Healthstar Physicians is currently accepting new patients.
