I've been with Summit Medical since 2007. Doctors have changed a couple times, due to reasons I'm unaware of. However, Dr. Melody Tharp is now my primary care physician & has been for the last 5 yrs or so. I am EXTREMELY pleased with her & love that she takes her time with me (I never feel as if I'm in an assembly line, like you do with some doctors). She is hard to set an appointment with but she is DEFINITELY worth the wait! Thanks Dr. Tharp for your ear & for the care you give to me & my kids

This Office is more like a Minute Clinic than a real doctor's office. I was a patient here for over one year and had never been able to schedule an appointment with Dr. Tharp...only nurse practitioners. It is against their policy to prescribe pain medications for ANY REASON. I have ruptured disk in my back, bone spurs, bulging disk have had 3 kidney stones while under their care. I had to see a specialist for pain medication.UNLESS YOUR'E JUST LOOKING FOR A FLU SHOOT, FIND ANOTHER DR.!!!!!
