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, 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. I also offer conveniences, like same- or next-day appointments that start on time, which may be found in concierge medicine practices. 

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.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Couch

from PHYLLIS in TN March 11, 2020 for J. Cummins Couch III, MD

I started seeing Dr. Couch 2 years ago. I am a reasonably healthy women in my 60's, but being able to text or call him anytime I have a problem, or a question, rather than having to jump through hoops with a office staffer, makes it worth the money I pay for the concierge service. Dr. Couch has alot of experience, yet he his young enough to be on the leading edge of everything medical,… See more

from Steve in TN March 13, 2018 for J. Cummins Couch III, MD

Dr. Couch gave excellent care to my dad. He let us try different types of natural remedies, as this is what we did prior to using Dr. Couch. He always took time to talk to us, let us use him as a sounding board, and put our mind at ease on more than one occasion. I'm a beekeeper and Doc was interested in bees. He came to my apiary to watch me check the hives and install a package of bees… See more

from David in TN March 9, 2018 for J. Cummins Couch III, MD

When I was a boy, many, many years ago, it was not unusual for the family doctor to make house calls, often bringing the leeches and the bleeding basin in the buggy with him. For most of my life, the Doctor has been a distant, priest-like character who didn't even know I had a house. Imagine, then, how elated I was when Cummins Couch joined MDVIP and invited me and my wife to… See more

We are talking about My Doc and Dr. James Cummins Couch. (Doc) an I began our association about 22 years ago. We both from the Maury County area and he become my (Doc) after the death of my original (Doc). He was pleasant, always smiling, honest, loved a great story, if the time alloted, could tell you one, but always finished giving his diagnosis and prescription. He became a designated MDVIP… See more

from Elizabeth in TN February 27, 2018 for J. Cummins Couch III, MD

My beloved parents, ages 89 and 91, live with my family and me. Without Dr. Couch's vigilance, his visits, and his support, this would be impossible. We are so grateful and feel he is a part of our family. I try not to abuse the privilege, but it is so comforting to know we can call him if we need him. Happy Physicans Day Dr. Couch!

Dr. Couch is readily available and attentive to our family's medical needs and wellness. He is very thorough and truly cares. We never feel rushed nor does he rush our appointments. He carefully takes time to understand and discuss and help improve our health for each of family members. He's the most wonderful doctor we've ever known!

from Skip March 29, 2017 for J. Cummins Couch III, MD

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

from Ivan W March 29, 2017 for J. Cummins Couch III, MD

In January, I was diagnosed with cancer. I had many tests run at home and they could not find the origin. Our friend and doctor, Dr. Couch (Doc) and his attendant Tracy got on the phone and contacted MDVIP for help. Within a day we received a call from FL and it was MDVIP letting us know we have an appointment at MD Anderson in Houston TX! We were so amazed! The next day we got a call from… See more
