Barton B. Thrasher, MD

Meet Barton B. Thrasher, MD


Since 2006, I have been practicing family medicine in both Oakland and Collierville, Tennessee. As a personal physician, I strive to offer personalized healthcare to my patients. Asking patients “How are you doing today?” takes time to answer. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, I have more time to listen and discuss what matters to you. My goal is to provide more personalized care focused on you. I believe an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and I talk often about how nutrition, exercise and even sleep can be cornerstones to prevention as well as longevity! 
 
I know your time is valuable. Waiting for a physician and feeling rushed with the physician should not happen in a medical office. My practice is smaller than traditional primary care offices, allowing the flexibility for same-day/next-day visits and longer appointments, if needed. Phone calls are answered by a person, and, if something more urgent arises after hours, on weekends or holidays, you can contact me. In my office, we work to help make your visits relaxed and not rushed. We want and look forward to taking care of you! 
 
My MDVIP-affiliated practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices. I believe that the annual MDVIP Wellness Program has helped provide a new level of depth with which I can work with patients. The annual screenings and tests help us identify certain risk markers. The results can give us a clearer picture of your overall health, and, together, we can formulate an action plan that makes sense for you. This plan can help you be more engaged as you pursue the goal of living healthier longer.   
 
Additional benefits of my MDVIP-affiliated practice include care for dependent children (up to age 26), as well as same-day/next-day office visits for them for more urgent needs.  
 
My special interests include athletic lifestyles and how I believe nutrition, diet and good sleep habits contribute to longevity. Call us to schedule a meet-and-greet. I am excited to have more time, tools and focused energy directed toward helping you pursue improved health.

Frequently Asked Questions

Doctors who operate in the MDVIP models typically see far fewer patients than traditional primary care doctors. That gives them more time to develop deeper doctor-patient relationships that can lead to better outcomes. They can also offer conveniences that most primary care doctors can’t, including same- and next-day appointments. They’re available after hours for urgent matters. And they have time to focus on prevention. That focus begins with the MDVIP Wellness Program, which patients pay for with their annual membership fee.

Most MDVIP-affiliated primary care practices accept insurance (your physician can tell you whether they accept your specific insurance plan). Your annual fee pays for preventive care medical services that insurance usually doesn’t cover (e.g., advanced diagnostic testing and screenings). Your MDVIP-affiliated physician will continue to bill your insurance and charge copays, co-insurances and deductibles as he or she currently does for other medical services like sick visits.

MDVIP makes wellness and prevention easier by providing your physician with innovative tools and technology. MDVIP supports your physician’s practice and seeks to eliminate barriers to a positive healthcare experience. Your doctor will determine whether and how to incorporate these tools at his/her discretion.

I have been a patient of Dr. Barton Thrasher for 6 years. I knew he was the one doctor I wanted to treat me. He found a major problem right off the bat and sent me to a specialist. He is very thorough, always knowledgeable, caring for my well being. A great listener too.

Dr Thrasher is the best!!

from Melissa in TN • March 10, 2024
I was searching for a doctor several years ago and Dr Thrasher was recommended to me by a nurse. I was impressed on my first visit and have never been let down since. He is thorough and he is also approachable. He “nicely” suggests ways for me to improve my health and I truly believe I am healthy because of him and because I chose to listen to him.
I recently had a serious surgery and I Read more...
