Expanding Williamson Medical Gastroenterology Practice Relocates to Updated Suite
FRANKLIN, Tenn. (Dec. 13, 2021) – Williamson Medical Center (WMC) has announced the relocation of its Williamson Medical Group (WMG) gastroenterology (GI) practice to a renovated suite inside the hospital’s main medical tower. The new location, opening today, includes an expanded waiting space for patients and family members to comfortably distance, a sub-waiting area to schedule gastroenterology procedures with ease and a reimagined workflow to maximize efficiencies.
“Regular GI screening and care is a crucial part of maintaining our patients’ overall health,” said Elizabeth Lindsey, M.D., gastroenterologist at WMC. “We are committed to providing compassionate care in a relaxed setting, and this relocation enhances our ability to do so as comfortably and efficiently as possible.”
WMG’s team of board-certified gastroenterologists, including Dr. Lindsey and Eric Sumner, M.D., have transitioned to the new office space. Also joining the new location is GI professional Claire Davis, MSN, CFNP. Davis is specialized in evaluating and treating chronic abdominal pain, bowel disorders and more.
“We are thrilled to welcome Claire to WMG,” said Dr. Sumner. “Her unique skillset and passion for working with patients to identify problems and solutions is a perfect fit for the clinic and adding her to the team enables us to offer patients greater access to appointment availability and scheduling.”
Current GI screening and procedures include colonoscopies, esophageal dilation and manometry, Bravo pH testing, upper endoscopy and endoscopic ultrasound.
“We are excited about expanding this office to our community,” said Tim Burton, associate administrator for operations, WMG. “As our community and its needs grow, the new location will allow for future expansion of GI services that will allow us to better meet those needs.”
The Gastroenterology office will be located on Williamson Medical Center’s campus in the medical office tower at 4323 Carothers Pkwy, Franklin, TN 37067, suite 600. Appointments can be made online by visiting https://williamsonmedicalcenter.org/gi/ or by calling 615-435-7979.
