Dr. Taura Long, MD
Dr. Long is your Primary Care Physician in Hermitage, TN! February 2016 she joined a NEW PRACTICE in a NEW LOCATION! Dr. Long is Board Certified in Family Medicine and welcomes patients of all ages from the newborn to the geriatric population. She was raised in Memphis, TN and currently resides in Nashville, TN.

Dr. Long then went on to receive her Medical Degree from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine prior to going back to her home state of Tennessee to complete her Family Medicine Residency at the University of TN Health Science Center in Jackson, TN. Outside of work and family, her interests include community service, writing, reading, painting and travel. It was her first mission trip to Tanzania in East Africa as a medical student that solidified Dr. Long's choice to practice medicine as a Family Medicine Doctor. She enjoyed the complexity of the patients along with being able to care for the entire family. Dr. Long also developed the Girl Power Program which focused on educating teenage girls (13-17) on social skills as well as health skills; she looks forward to restarting that program again in Hermitage. Even further, prior to joining St. Thomas Dr. Long worked in rural north island New Zealand for 6 months where she worked with the underserved Maori population in Opotiki. Although Dr. Long has many interests, the one thing she loves and is privileged to be able to do is be your Family Doctor! It is a joy for her to wake up and provide medical care to her patients.

Dr. Long is the best doctor I've ever been to. I have never met a more caring, patient-oriented doctor in all my years. In fact, I have moved from Hermitage to Springfield, and I will STILL drive the 60 minutes back to go see her. She is THAT amazing.

La Vergne, TN |
Dr Long has excellent bedside manners and listens to what you are saying. She doesn't just let you talk and and then talk like she never heard a word you said, she follows up with patients. She works with you as a patient to come to the best possible solutions. Dr Long is genuinely interested in her patients health.
in Nashville, TN |
Dr. Long is very caring and understanding when it comes to her patients. She will do what it takes to help you figure out what is going on with you and look for the best remedy. She is very pleasant and has the best nurse out there. You should check her out and meet her nurse Pam she will make you feel very comfortable and welcomed.
It is a joy and an honor to care for my patients. My Staff and I truly love what we do. Thank you.
