Medical Specialists of Johnson City

Offering Cutting-Edge Rheumatology Healthcare

Medical Specialists of Johnson City (MSJC) physicians are dedicated to providing compassionate care. We are part of State of Franklin Healthcare Associates (SOFHA), a progressive, patient-centered system of medical practices serving Northeast Tennessee, Southwest Virginia, and Western North Carolina.

Our rheumatologists are trained to identify and treat the causes of musculoskeletal pain and swelling, including autoimmune connective tissue disorders. Arthritis, gout, and ankylosing spondylitis are just three of the more than 100 types of rheumatic diseases.

You don’t have to be affiliated with SOFHA to use our sub-specialty services. However, if you already see another SOFHA physician, we have access to your medical records, making your visit more efficient and effective. We also offer FollowMyHealth® Patient Portal, a secure, online application through which you can keep track of your own progress and medical history.

Up-to-Date Medical Technology and Treatments

Our physicians are board certified in their respective specialties and keep abreast of all new research and treatment practices, such as using immune modulation therapies in addressing rheumatic. As part of SOFHA, we also have easy access to a variety of services, including a lab, physical therapy services, an imaging department, plus walk-in and diabetes clinics.

On occasion, our patients need “infusion therapy” or intravenous (IV) therapy when medications may cause unpleasant side effects if ingested or are too large to be taken orally. Our infusion suite is conveniently located next door to MSJC in a special Acute Care Clinic (in same building with Johnson City Internal Medicine), also operated by State of Franklin Healthcare Associates. Staffed with an experienced medical team, this clinic provides a private, comfortable environment for receiving infusion therapy, which may require as little as 15-30 minutes or last as long as 4-5 hours.
