Diane Fabricius, MD, FAAFP

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Marcus Welby, M.D. was a devoted family physician who took care of all his patients’ needs and even made home visits. As an MDVIP-affiliated primary care physician I can be that kind of doctor; providing personalized healthcare for you and your family. Being in the best of health takes work, from both of us, and I will partner with you to help reach your personal goals and stay healthy. You have enough things to think about each day; worrying about your quality of healthcare shouldn’t be one of them.

I have been a physician for over 30 years, first in Chicago, and now Oak Ridge where I see patients from the city and surrounding areas. My favorite part of being a doctor is taking care of generations of families and guiding them through life’s healthcare challenges and miracles. From diabetes and nutrition, to women’s health and well-baby visits; it’s about being your doctor for life. I do my best to keep you and your family out of the hospital, but if you do need to be hospitalized I am affiliated with Methodist Medical Center in Oak Ridge. Taking care of you is my top priority and by taking the time to focus on prevention and wellness you’ll get more out of your visits and more out of life.
