Long-time Summit Medical Group physician Dr. Michael Mitchell has opened a solo practice, Turkey Creek Internal Medicine, at Tennova Medical Plaza, Farragut, and is accepting new patients.

Previously with Tennessee Center for Internal Medicine at Fort Sanders, his new practice is located at 10810 Parkside Drive, Suite 310 of Medical Plaza I, Turkey Creek.
