Dr. Beasley is open to new patients again. New patients may now schedule online again without a referral. Appointments will be approved by Lauren and Dr. Beasley after review.
Dr. Beasley is trying a new schedule this summer. She will have earlier morning and later evening appointments several times per month for your convenience. You can look for these times to be available when booking in the office and online.
As a reminder, please allow 48 business hours for refills, especially for controlled substances.
Video appointments are still available. However, the patient needs to be within the state of Tennessee during the virtual visit. Regulations require that the patient being seen must be physically within the state that Dr. Beasley is licensed, Tennessee. Please verify before your appointment time if you need a virtual visit.

We are transitioning to a different texting/phone service. Please be patient with us while we make this transition.
As always, get outside and move your body!
The practice switched to a new service in January and we’ve been having significant difficulties with it. Our phone line (voicemail and texts) are completely down as of 10a. We are working hard to resolve this and are deeply sorry for any inconveniences over the past few weeks as we did not realize that some text messages and voicemails were not being received.
If you need to reach Dr. Beasley today 2/24/23, please email her at [email protected] or send a fax to 423-425-9923. Our email and fax systems are separate from the Verizon phone account.
We are working quickly to switch to a different system ASAP.
Dr. Beasley has a new assistant, Lauren. She is assisting with communications, refills, prior authorizations. She is an amazing asset to the practice. Thank you for your patience while we transition her into the system.

Dr. Beasley is NOT a participating TennCare provider. While she is happy to still see patients who are covered by TennCare and willing to pay out of pocket, TennCare does NOT cover any prescriptions written by out of network providers. This means that if you choose to see Dr. Beasley and have TennCare, any prescriptions written by Dr. Beasley will NOT be covered by TennCare. This is a longstanding issue that she has attempted many times to appeal unsuccessfully.
No matter how you identify, you are valid and your mental health matters. Dr. Beasley’s practice is an open and affirming space for everyone, and she welcomes the entire LGBTQIA community and their loved ones.
Dr. Beasley is seeing patients in person whenever possible based on health and comfort level. If you are fever-free and otherwise healthy AND feel comfortable meeting in person, please plan to do so unless directed otherwise. She is doing her best to contact people on her schedule at least 24 hours in advance to confirm preferences, but you can always reach out to confirm as well. Please feel free to text her at 423-443-2120 if you have questions about your appointment. For the most part, the Doxy system works well for virtual appointments if needed, so don’t hesitate to use this resource if for any reason you need to be at home when you are scheduled.

Given the current COVID-19 virus caseload in Hamilton County, it is safest for you to meet through video or phone for your scheduled appointment. However, decisions will be made on a case by case basis whether this is the best choice for your care. Please plan to connect with Dr. Beasley via text within 24 hours of your appointment to verify whether your appointment will be in person or remote.
Regulations as of 7/10/20 for in-person appointments are that patients are fever-free and have no known COVID-19 contacts within the past two weeks. Additionally, all persons at the clinic will be required to wear masks for the duration of the Hamilton County mandate.
Due to the current CDC recommendations, I am only holding appointments by phone or via video through doxy.me. It is vital that we all do our part to reduce the burden on our healthcare system as this virus spreads through our community. Please confirm with me prior to your appointment time how you would like to communicate. Doxy.me is a video service that is easy to access through most web browsers on a laptop or mobile device. You can reach me through the following link at your appointment time:
