Mountain Region Family Medicine (MRFM) is currently accepting new patients at its office located in the newly-renovated historic Kingsport Press Building.

The move to the Kingsport Press Building allowed Mountain Region Family Medicine to combine three of its four Kingsport locations into one facility and the practice now occupies the entire second floor of the Press Building. Physicians in the new facility include Drs. Arthur Boyd, Gary Casey, Andy Delwadia, Robert Funke, Eric Harman, Mack Hicks, Michael Kauzlarich, Aaron Metcalf, Kevin Misischia, W. Michael Smith and Bruce Vincent. Dr. Delwadia is board certified in Internal Medicine. All of the other physicians are board certified in Family Medicine.

Brooke Napier-Gibson recently joined MRFM as a nurse practitioner. Gibson graduated from ETSU with a Master of Science in Nursing in 2010 and is credentialed through the ANCC (American Nurse’s Credentialing Center) as a Family Nurse Practitioner. She previously worked as a registered nurse in labor and delivery, women’s health and gastroenterology, and later as a FNP, caring for the adult population.

Gibson is accepting new patients of all age groups and is excited to meet healthcare needs with a holistic approach. Her passion and desire for her profession is evident in her eagerness to assist others.

Gibson remarked about the supportive assistance from the physicians at MRFM and the collaborative relationship between the staff and employees.

"What makes Mountain Region Family Medicine unique is that the physicians here treat an entire family. We see the children, parents and grandparents and get to know the whole family," said Gibson. "We serve a variety of patients and provide a wide array of medical services for everyone."

To schedule an appointment with Gibson, please call 423-230-2801.

The location in the Kingsport Press Building provides full lab services plus ultrasound imaging, x-ray imaging and dexascan bone density scanning.

"What our physicians provide is both wellness care and wellness checkups for patients, as well as chronic disease management for patients with chronic illnesses," said Jerry Flannery, administrator, MRFM.

"The best way to describe our practice is very compassionate multi-talented, multi-tasking physicians," he said. "Our physicians also leave room in their daily schedule to see patients who may have a need to see their physician that day."

MRFM still operates the Colonial Heights office for the convenience of the patients in that area. Drs. Roger Archer, Richard Brandon and Christopher Matthews staff the Colonial Heights office. There are also two office locations in Virginia. Drs. Wesley Eastridge and Paul Black see patients in Gate City and Dr. Gregory DeMotts is in the Nickelsville office. All of these physicians are board certified in Family Medicine.

"The MRFM physicians have a strong sense of community and that is the one of the reasons for locating in the Kingsport Press Building. By a unanimous vote from our physicians, we are also sponsoring the Carousel Project, the Kingsport Ballet, and we support many other non-profit community groups," Flannery said.

MRFM staffs more than 80 employees, and approximately 45,000 patients in the Tri-Cities region call one of the MRFM physicians their family doctor.

The practice is accepting new patients at all locations and is eager to provide comprehensive medical care. For more information, please call 423-230-2100 or visit the website at
