Care Philosophy

The professional and clerical staff of this office is dedicated to providing each individual patient the most up-to-date, yet personal, medical care possible. We provide Family Centered Obstetrical care and personalized Gynecological care.

Obstetrics & Gynecology

OB deliveries are performed at the state-of -the-art Birth Center at the Tennova North Knoxville Hospital. This facility offers Family Centered Maternity Care in rooms (LDRPs) where labor, delivery, recovery, and postpartum all occur in the same room. These large, spa like rooms are designed to keep the baby with the mother and family after delivery until time to go home.

Full scope Gynecological care for women is provided by Dr. Leonard Brabson and  Dr. Jeanette Toney and Women's Health Nurse Practitioners Leslie Stone and Lauren Watkins. Other services include GYN surgery, laser surgery, laparoscopy, and sonography.
