Latest Awards & Recognitions

Summit Medical Group at Deane Hill recognized for excellent care of heart/stroke patients.

The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) has recognized Summit Medical Group primary care physicians for providing excellent care to patients with cardiovascular disease or who have had a stroke.

The NCQA Heart/Stroke Recognition Program (HSRP) was launched in 2003 as a voluntary program designed to recognize clinicians who use evidence-based measures and provide excellent care. HSRP assesses key quality performance measures, such as blood pressure control and smoking/tobacco use cessation assistance, among others.

“Each of our physicians is committed to the highest level of quality that primary care and preventive medicine can provide,” Summit Medical Group CEO Ed Curtis said. “These A physicians who participated in and received recognition through this voluntary program exemplify that commitment. We are fortunate to have this caliber of health care available in East Tennessee.

Recognized Deane Hill Physicians include:

“For a person with cardiovascular issues, the right clinician can make the difference between living with cardiovascular issues as opposed to suffering from cardiovascular issues. By earning recognition, these clinicians have demonstrated that they provide effective, evidence-based care to patients with cardiovascular issues.”

– Margaret E. O’Kane, NCQA President

Within just a few minutes of talking to the nurse and then to Dr. Dee, without telling him anything about my preferences on treatment options for some of the conditions that I have been diagnosed, he began discussing the various ways to treat them, and recommended what I've found to be the best treatment.

Dr. Rylands and his staff provide excellent care. He is very good a diagnosing problems. He spends time with his patients and explains any treatments or medications he recommends. When my cholesterol was high, he pulled out a study and went through all the risks with me.

I would recommend Dr. Anderson because I have used them long term and have never had any problem with any of their treatments or procedures. I will use him again in the future.

It took me a long time to find a doctor in Knoxville who would listen to me and trust that I knew my body and that I had read extensively on health and wellness. As an avid health nut, yogi, meditator and outdoor sportswoman, I was continuously surprised by always being sick. After the very first meeting with Dr. Smeltzer, and his lovely nurse, Anna, they had diagnosed me and sent me home. Within 3 months I was a new person, coming off all but a few medications. This past year, Dr. Smeltzer, Dr. Huff and Anna helped me through a difficult transition with flying colors. I recommend this team to everyone. Thank you so much!
