Mountain Region Family Medicine


Mountain Region Family Medicine has been practicing in NIckelsville for over 40 years and joined State of Franklin Healthcare Associates in 2021.

Our office is committed to providing the same quality care with a personal touch that the community of Nickelsville has come to know and trust for over 40 years. Dr. Richardson and his staff believe in providing care in an unhurried environment, fostering an active partnership with individuals and their families for the betterment of their health and the health of the community. Our smaller office size allows patients and their families to get familiar with staff and build meaningful relationships with the care team to become like family. Our staff consider it a joy and responsibility to offer the best care possible to all of our valued patients.

Our physicians subscribe to the highest standards of care for our patients and continually monitor our practices against the best practices in our specialty. All MRFM physicians are board certified in either Family Practice, ABFM, or Internal Medicine, ABIM. MRFM prides itself on receiving designations and accreditations that signify excellence in virtually every aspect of medical care and customer service.

After Hours Emergencies

For after-hours emergencies phone (423) 857-7000 and ask that the doctor on call for your doctor to be paged.

We have office staff to help keep track of telephone messages and make sure each one is answered. Our offices are open Monday through Friday. We do not keep a weekend clinic, but we take turns with “on-call duty” during hours the offices are closed, so that one of our staff physicians is available at any hour for emergencies that cannot wait until the office reopens.

For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, call 9-1-1.
