Medical Doctor

Family Medicine

Dr. Ellen “Nelle” Nave is a Board Certified Family Physician. She joined the Pinnacle family in July of 2009, but has been practicing medicine since 2003. A native of Johnson City, she attended Sewanee College before attending ETSU Quillen College of Medicine. Dr. Nave has always had a passion for science, as biology was her favorite subject. Growing up with a science teacher and family physician as parents, she got to see first-hand how much joy these areas could bring. Dr. Nave is happily married with three children. Outside of work, Dr. Nave enjoys baking, cooking and hiking, but her favorite activity is simply taking a walk with the family.
