Terri-Lynn Philpot, MD

Southern Tennessee Regional Health System Pulaski (STRHS Pulaski) officials announce the addition of Terri-Lynn Philpot, MD to the medical staff and to the staff at First Choice Health in Pulaski in September.

“We are so excited to add Dr. Philpot to our amazing medical staff,” said hospital CEO Jim Edmondson.   “Dr. Philpot’s skills and interests filled a huge need in our community.   While by definition, a Family Practice physician takes care of patients, as they say, “cradle to grave”, we have really needed to find a physician who desires to see more patients who are advancing in age.  For the purpose of clarity, patients my age or older.  I am so happy Dr. Philpot decided to make Giles County her home.”

Dr. Philpot received her medical degree from the American University of Integrative Science in Cole Bay, St. Maarten and completed her family medicine residency at Indiana University in Indianapolis, Indiana where she has most recently completed a fellowship in geriatric medicine.  She is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians and the American Geriatrics Society.

Dr. Philpot is joining the healthcare team at First Choice Health in Pulaski where she will offer services such as but not limited to acute and chronic illness management, medical care for adult and adolescents, reproductive health, inclusive medicine, skin procedures, joint injections, annual wellness exams, sports physicals, and more.
