In the last couple of years, the world has placed a special emphasis on the medical community. The front-line workers. The ones, who despite having worries and families of their own, put everything on the line to ensure the rest of us were being cared for. Whether that was in the emergency room tending to patients battling COVID-19 or in their specialty practices ensuring that their doors remained open so that their patients wouldn’t lose opportunities to better or maintain their health. Here at Cityview, we are grateful for these men and women.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of our Top Doctors list. Each year, we call out the doctors who have gone above in beyond in their respective medical fields to help you, our readers, navigate the complex world of health. But we do so in a way where you can feel confident in the names you’re reading. We reach out to our medical community, and we ask them: Who of your peers are the best in their disciplines? Who would you send your family members to if they needed medical care? And we present the results here, in just about every discipline imaginable, from pediatricians and primary care doctors to specialty fields such as psychiatry and neurology.

One thing to note: the doctors here are listed in alphabetical order, not by number of votes. They have been ranked the top group of physicians in their fields, so you can feel confident in choosing any of the names listed for any of your health needs. So without further ado, we present the 2022 listing of Knoxville’s Top Doctors. Stay well!
