Robyn Wilson, M.D. To Open Ardmore Office Monday October 14

Robyn Wilson grew up in a small town in Alabama. She knew medicine would be her life's work after going on a medical mission trip as a senior in high school. After graduating high school, she attended Auburn University and received a degree in Biomedical Sciences. Dr. Wilson participated in the Rural Medicine Program, spending a year learning more about the social and health needs of rural communities.

She attended University of Alabama School of Medicine and completed her residency at Ball Memorial Hospital in Muncie, IN in 2019. Robyn is trained in full spectrum family medicine, caring for children, women, men, and the elderly. She received extra training to practice obstetrics.  Her practice offers family health care as well as basic skin procedures, gynecologic and basic musculoskeletal procedures, as well as breastfeeding counseling.

Her practice is in conjunction with Southern Tennessee Regional Health System in Pulaski, TN. Opening in Ardmore Monday October 14, office hours are Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Nurse practitioner Robyn Thigpen will be seeing

patients on Fridays.

Dr. Wilson stated, "I was drawn to Ardmore because I was somewhat familiar with the area after living in Alabama and then attending my last two years of medical school in Huntsville. I still had a passion for rural medicine and felt like Ardmore would be the kind of community where I would want to practice. After visiting Ardmore while looking for jobs, my husband and I also felt like this would be the perfect community to raise our three girls. We have been here a little over a month and have enjoyed every minute. Thank you to all the people of Ardmore who have been so welcoming."
