The ACC serves patients with same-day, non-emergent health care issues. Potentially emergent health care issues like head injury, motor vehicle accidents, chest pain, difficulty breathing, persistent abdominal pain, and “worst ever” headache are referred to an Emergency Room where they may be more appropriately assessed and treated. If you need to contact Pam Waddell, APN, regarding a recent visit to the clinic, you may reach nurse Liz at (865) 974-5273.  Leave a message if the extension is not answered as they are busy with patient care. Messages are checked frequently. Pam will not call in an antibiotic prescription without seeing you in the clinic.
