Dr. Rita Plemmons Begins Seeing Patients At Wellmont Medical Associates in Johnson City

Dr. Rita Plemmons, a well-respected physician in the region for 13 years, will begin seeing patients on Monday, July 16, at Wellmont Medical Associates.

Dr. Plemmons will treat patients at the Wellmont Outpatient Campus, 316 Marketplace Blvd., Suite 20. She partners with Dr. Bob Connell, who opened Wellmont Medical Associates’ first Johnson City family practice on June 15.

The practice takes care of patients of all ages.

“We look at everything that might be happening with a patient, not just one aspect of health,” she said. “I like to talk to patients and hear their stories, and I’m pretty particular about ensuring all their health care needs are taken into account.”

Dr. Plemmons said she really enjoys providing care to children and thinks she is a better physician because she is a parent.

A physician since 1992, Dr. Plemmons had practiced at Dry Creek Medical Center in Erwin since 1999. Earlier in her career, she practiced in three communities in Georgia.

Dr. Plemmons graduated from University of North Carolina School of Medicine and completed her family practice residency at Mountain Area Health Education Center in Asheville, N.C.
