Dr. Long's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Long "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. Following her undergraduate studies at Xavier University of LA, she attended Southern Illinois University where she received a post-baccalaureate certificate. 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. "
