Jeff Grabenstein, MD, FAAFP

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I am a family physician who tries to make a difference in the lives of my patients. Utilizing a systemic approach to healthcare I believe that I can help my patients best by truly knowing who they are and what is important to them. This means that I address the cause of any complaints, devise a plan to get you back on track and provide continued counsel to empower you to become and remain well. This takes time.

As a member of my MDVIP-affiliated practice I will be able to personalize your healthcare by emphasizing prevention and wellness. The ability to obtain same day evaluations will allow timely treatments to be carried out so that more serious consequences are less likely to develop.

I share my practice with my wife, Diane Fabricius, MD. We both care for people in Oak Ridge and surrounding areas and are affiliated with Methodist Medical Center in Oak Ridge.
