Exceptional medical care. Coming soon!

Karis Medical Clinic, opening in 2021, will provide check-ups, diagnoses, and treatments for a variety of physical ailments and conditions— all from a team of dedicated doctors, nurses, and staff.

A new chapter of care from Karis.

Karis Dental is becoming Karis Community Health with the addition of its sister branch, Karis Medical.

The new medical facility will be one door down from Karis Dental on Broad Street in Cleveland in a neighboring building gifted to Karis. The site was originally a family home that had become abandoned and dilapidated. Now, this older building is being restored to become a medical facility to treat adults in need in Bradley County.

The Medical building will include exam rooms, a lab, specialized equipment rooms, and a waiting area. Offices, meeting space, and administrative areas will be located on the second story.

The excitement is growing as the finishes are installed, paint is drying, and the multi-month construction comes to an end.

Karis Medical will provide a variety of medical services to patients in need of affordable care in Bradley County. These services will include: physicals, sick patient visits, chronic disease management, lab & radiology services, and more.

There are private exam rooms allowing patients to receive a high-level of care in a private and personal atmosphere Patients will undergo a formal financial screening and are required to meet certain criteria in order to schedule an appointment.

Leading the medical arm of the Karis team is Dr. Madison Torrence. Dr. Torrence is a board certified physician who has worked at Tennova Hospital (formerly Bradley Memorial) for over 20 years. Although he has loved his work in Emergency Medicine, he now feels called by God to transition full-time into primary care for the undeserved people of Bradley County where he was born and raised. Dr. Torrence is eager to further the mission of Karis by providing affordable healthcare with excellence to uninsured adults in Bradley County.

Karis Medical is on target to begin accepting patients in July 2021.
