Our Story

Performance Medicine was started in 2007 by Dr. Tom Rogers in Kingsport, Tennessee. Dr. Rogers, a Family Practitioner, had been in traditional medicine for 25 years before starting his own practice that would focus mainly on treating root causes and prevention.

With his experience in traditional medicine and extensive education in integrative medicine, Dr. Rogers is able to create protocols and treatment plans that combine the best of these two worlds. And just as importantly, he’s created a practice model that allows him and his team to practice this way.

Performance Medicine does not accept insurance. The transaction is between Performance Medicine and its patients only. There is no middle man. This allows us to spend more time with the patient, and treat each patient as the unique person that they are.

We have no incentive to run unnecessary tests, and our medical team decides with the patient what the best course of action for their health is. Not an insurance company.

Performance Medicine currently has three locations in Tennessee: Kingsport, Johnson City and Knoxville.
