My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I believe the key to good health is having a personalized partnership with each of my patients by caring, listening, educating and advocating for them. In my personalized healthcare practice, often compared to concierge medicine, I am able to spend extra time with my patients on prevention and wellness and also focus on women's health, occupational health, cardiovascular health and weight loss.

As a board-certified family physician, I see all age groups from newborns to seniors, working to help them achieve their optimal health.

I am affiliated with Maury Regional Hospital and see patients from all over middle Tennessee, including Franklin, Brentwood, Spring Hill, Columbia, Mt. Pleasant, Pulaski, Lawrenceburg, Loretto, Hampshire, Hohenwald, Lewisburg, Murfreesboro and Dickson

We offer complimentary meet-and-greet consultations to see how you would benefit in our unique practice. I look forward to meeting you.

Dr. Couch has been my physician for about twenty years. Always, even until this day, he has offered his shoulders to help me bear my health burdens, with truth, interest and wonderful advice. Somewhere along the way, we also became friends. Recently I was diagnosed with ALS at Vanderbilt, after him being responsible for making me that appointment. I asked him if he, through MDVIP, could get… See more

Dr Couch is a unique and extremely competent medical professional. I have known him since he was a young lad in High School. He is a very caring person with a charming personality. Without Dr Couch, there is a strong possibility that, I would not be alive today.

from Angelia in TN February 10, 2015 for J. Cummins Couch III, MD

Dr. Couch and his staff are wonderful! He never rushes my appointments and explains everything in great detail. Tracy & Jana are always ready to help me with appointments or questions about my billing. I love that my time is precious, which means I do not have to sit in the waiting room for long periods. They make me feel that I matter. All three of these people have my greatest respect.… See more
