About Dr. Berry and Staff
Dr. Berry started and has run PATMOS EmergiClinic – the only insurance-free, fee-for-service practice in northeast Tennessee – for over 18 years which has probably been the most personal, transparent, and cost effective primary care practice in the area before changing to direct primary care. He is currently board certified in Internal Medicine and formerly board certified in Emergency Medicine, having logged over 15,000 hours in ER’s, many of which have had high patient volumes, and so he has seen and treated almost everything. He graduated from a top tier medical school (University of North Carolina), trained at a top tier residency program in Primary Care Internal Medicine (University of Alabama), and scored in the top tier on his Internal Medicine Boards (99% on its core component). With this training, knowledge, and experience, he has been able to treat in his office many medical problems that most other primary care providers refer to the ER such as suturing chain saw wounds, removing rust rings from the eye, performing lumbar punctures, and providing IV therapy for dehydration.
Russell Perry, a board certified internist, joined Dr. Berry part time last June and brings a lot of experience to DirectMD Greeneville, having run his own private practice in Florida for over 30 years. His wife, Roxann, has joined us part time in the front office. Shelia Parker, our medical assistant, energizes the back office and has extraordinary phlebotomy skills. Dr. Berry’s wife, Blair, as most of you know runs the front office and is always ready to pray with patients.
