News and Events
Rutherford County has a few vaccines available for healthcare workers and people over the age of 70years old. Go to the TN COVID vaccine site to sign up for a vaccine or to find out if you are eligible. They will notify you when you become eligible, too. Dr. Rickard and I strongly recommend that if you qualify, you be vaccinated. Vaccines have been researched very thoroughly for many years and save lives. The research behind the COVID-19 vaccines has been going on for decades. If you do not get the vaccine, you will probably get COVID-19. So far, no one has died from getting the COVID vaccines. Also, no one who was given any of the vaccines being studied died of COVID after the vaccine had time to work. GREAT NEWS! Let's put this pandemic behind us and all get vaccinated. We have seen a lot of sickness and death from the coronavirus, plus long term effects in even young people.

August, 2017: Family Practice Partners is pleased to announce they are again the recipients of the Best Practice Award given each year by PPRNet, a national research group dedicated to combining research with improving healthcare. This award is given to practices in the top 10% of the practices in the research group. Our patients are much more likely to be up-to-date with immunizations, Pap smears, mammograms, as well as cholesterol, prostate cancer, colon cancer and blood pressure screening than most patients. Our patients are receiving excellent care for diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, and other chronic diseases, as well as being given excellent care of respiratory illnesses, depression, tobacco and alcohol abuse.
