Be Well Knoxville

Heather's vow

I have worked for others before stepping out on my own and have always found they lack certain elements. So here at Be Well, I want to provide the very best for my patients, and to do so, I have vowed:

• to hire medical professionals so you have the best, qualified care and support.

• to give individual attention & support to each and every one I see. We don't rush or overbook our specialists so you have their full and undivided attention. You are more than just a number here!  

• Actual Prescription Medication. Our medications have been approved by the FDA. They are not a "quick fix", and not all patients are candidates for certain medications.

• Nutrition and Exercise Counseling are vital for achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. This is a life-long journey. No weight wellness journey is the same. Here at Be Well, we realize that there is a process and we are committed to helping and supporting your journey the whole way through.

• Affordability. We help you take the steps to healthy changes that fit your lifestyle as well as your budget.

• Medically Supervised Service- Aesthetic & weight loss goals are achieved through patient/provider collaboration with our advance trained Board Certificate Nurse Practitioners.
