Bone & Joint Specialists, PLLC, in Paris, joins West Tennessee Bone & Joint Clinic, PC
|Dr. G. Blake Chandler|
Dr. G. Blake Chandler, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon, has joined with West Tennessee Bone & Joint Clinic. Dr. Chandler has been practicing at Bone & Joint Specialists, PLLC, in Paris, Tennessee, since he opened the clinic in 2000.
Joining West Tennessee Bone & Joint with him is his nurse practitioner, Clay Nolen, FNP, BC.
Dr. Chandler, a Paris native, will continue to see patients in Paris. He is proud to serve his hometown, he said. “With my new affiliation with West Tennessee Bone & Joint Clinic, patients will continue to receive the same great compassionate care from the same staff in the same location.”
Dr. Chandler earned his medical degree at East Tennessee State University and completed his residency in orthopedic surgery at The Campbell Clinic and University of Tennessee at Memphis.
Recent changes in health care led to conversations about the benefits of merging practices and becoming one. The new organization will combine 13 specialists and other providers in 10 locations throughout West Tennessee.
Aside from improved technology, Chandler emphasized that little about his practice will change. “I’ll continue to see patients in our same office locations in Paris and Union City, and our same, skilled staff will remain in place.”
Chandler also will continue to operate at Henry County Medical Center and the Surgery Center in Paris.
“Both practices are very successful historically, but the opportunities for growth are simply greater now as one physician group,” said Donna Klutts, CEO of West Tennessee Bone & Joint Clinic.
Physicians at West Tennessee Bone & Joint Clinic include Drs. Lowell Stonecipher, Michael Cobb, David Johnson, Kelly Pucek, Harold Antwine III, David Pearce, Jason Hutchison, Adam Smith, Doug Haltom, Michael Dolan, Eric Homberg and John Everett.
