About Our Practice

At Whitesburg Family Medicine we strive to provide the best care for you and your family. Our doctors practice "evidence based medicine" which relies on well designed medical research to guide treatment instead of "expert opinion". We welcome our patients to take an active role in their medical care and as such we will offer advice and recommendations, but will never force treatment on any of our patients. Likewise we won't put you or your child in harms way by providing unnecessary treatment that could have serious side effects, such as prescribing antibiotics for a cold. We hope you find your experience with us to be relaxed, informative, and helpful. In addition to a full electronic medical record, our practice offers various services to our patients including:
Vaccinations for all agesIn office labIn office blood draws for labs not performed in our officeEKGPFTs (lung function test)Pap smearsMinor skin surgery

Q: Do you admit to the local hospitals?
A: After much discussion we have decided to use the hospitalists groups for both Crestwood and Huntsville Hospitals.

Q: What is a hospitalist?
A: A hospitalist is a doctor, usually specializing in Internal Medicine, who cares for other doctors' patients if they require care in the hospital. They almost exclusively work in the hospital. Just as a cardiologist specializes in the heart, hospitalists specialize in hospital medicine.

Q: Who will decide if I need to go to the hospital?
A: Occasionally illnesses are severe enough that they require you to be admitted to the hospital. Like before, If you go to the ER, you and the ER doctor will decide if admission is needed. Likewise if you are in the office, you and Dr. McMillion, Dr. Ghanta, or Dr. Haley will make that decision. We will contact the hospital doctor to let them know you are coming to the hospital and they will see you when you get to your room.

Q: Does this mean you are no longer on call after-hours for urgent questions or concerns?
A: Absolutely not. Dr. Haley, Dr. Ghanta, and Dr. McMillion are still available for urgent questions or concerns, just as before. They only share call with each other so you will always hear a familiar voice.

Email has been DISCONTINUED. Please call the office directly. It is our hope to give patients the best and most timely care possible. For this reason, we implemented secure email to allow patients to communicate directly with the nurses. However, despite their best efforts, the nurses were unable to keep up with the influx of emails received. In order to provide the most timely care for our patients, the office has decided to discontinue the use of email between nurses and patients. Thank you for your understanding.
