After I was diagnosed with Lyme, I went on the search for a new PCP. My original PCP (who ended moving out of the state), would only spend six minutes with me during each of my many visits - he would literally start backing towards the door to leave while I was still talking. Knowing that I needed more time, as well as a doctor who really cared and was up to date on new testing and treatment… See more
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
My goal as your personal doctor is to partner with you to focus on longevity, stabilizing your existing medical problems and eliminating or controlling them with the use of diet, exercise and the appropriate medication and/or supplements.
Prevention is also a primary focus in my practice. The cardiovascular lab panels from Cleveland HeartLab that are part of the MDVIP Wellness Program help us to prevent the development of plaque, which can lead to coronary artery disease and cerebrovascular disease. We work to get ahead of other conditions that can affect us as we age, such as the development of cancer, dementia, fatigue and arthritic pain, by testing for common risk factors like vitamin D deficiency.
In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, you will be treated in a warm and welcoming atmosphere with flexible hours as late as 6:00 pm to allow appointments to be scheduled the same day or next day for a sick visit.
My internal medicine practice is located in Germantown, TN. We serve patients throughout the Memphis area including the surrounding suburbs of Germantown, Collierville, Arlington, Southaven, Olive Branch and Hernando as well as Desoto and Fayette counties, with patients as far away as Jonesboro, Arkansas, Cape Girardeau, Missouri and Jackson, TN. I admit all my patients to either Methodist Hospital-Germantown or Baptist Hospital-Memphis and follow them throughout the hospital course. I have never used hospitalists, since the knowledge that I have gained from my patient relationships in the office is priceless in managing their healthcare in the hospital. I occasionally make house calls when deemed necessary.
My hope is that a preventive approach will allow you to achieve a long and active life.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Posey
When I moved to Memphis in 1983 I was looking for a good doctor. Well I found one in Dr Michael Posey. He was my doctor until he joined Mdvip. I was devastated. For 3 years I hardly saw a doctor. I made up my mind that I had to have Dr Posey as my doctor. Knowing it would be a financial struggle for me, I bit the bullet and joined Mdvip. I just hope I can afford this in years to come… See more

Dr Posey has diagnosed several serious illnesses of mine in the last 25 years, including hyperthyroidism and diverticulitis before they became debilitating, and set up my treatment at the proper specialist. Most recently was my arterial fibrillation, resulting in a successful heart ablation procedure.
