Your initial appointment will address your diagnosis and treatment options.
Please be aware as a NEW patient we recommend a “full skin exam” if and when possible.
*Occasionally, treatment can be done the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan may require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at the first visit.
Our office is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM (Greeneville closes at 12pm on Friday). We are currenly taking NEW patients for all insurance types, excluding Tenncare. If you have pain or an emergency situation, every attempt will be made to see you that day! We try our best to stay on schedule to minimize your waiting.
Due to the fact that Drs. Winton, Clemons, Benson, Peterson, and their Physician Assistant and Nurse Practitioner staff provide many levels of care and services, various circumstances may lengthen the time allocated for a procedure.
Emergency cases can also arise and cause delays. We appreciate your understanding and patience.
Please call us at Johnson City Office Phone Number 423-929-7546 with any questions or to schedule an appointment.

Tri-Cities Skin & Cancer
Under the law, health care providers must give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. This is called a Good Faith Estimate.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate and Tri-Cities Skin & Cancer will provide one prior to your scheduled appointment.
The Good Faith Estimate shows a total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services, including pathology processed here at our office. This estimate is based on information known at the time the estimate was created.
You will receive a Good Faith Estimate in advance of an already scheduled medical service or item. You may also request an estimate before scheduling an appointment. The estimate will be provided within three business days of the request.
The Good Faith Estimate does not include any unknown or unexpected costs that may arise during treatment.
PLEASE BE AWARE:
Will result in a change to the Good Faith Estimate
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate or the dispute process, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises. or call 1-800-985-3059
