Overview

Aaron Bussey, M.D. understands that diseases of the endocrine system are complex and often difficult for patients to understand. He firmly believes his patients do best by understanding both disease and treatments . He spends as much time as possible listening to the concerns of his patients and then educating them about their condition and recommended treatments. His goal is to help patients make fully informed and well educated decisions regarding their own health and medical care. He has specific interests in the individualized treatment of diabetes, menopause, and disorders of the thyroid. Dr. Bussey is a native of Texas but has come to love East Tennessee (almost) as much. He attended medical school at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. His residency in Internal Medicine was at The University of Tennessee Medical Center in Memphis . While there he met his wife - a true Memphis Belle. The groom's cake at their wedding featured Davy Crockett's famous quote “You may all go to Hell and I'll go to Texas ”. After angering all his new in-laws Dr. Bussey fled back home for fellowship training in endocrinology at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio . He spent three years working in the concrete jungle of Dallas before realizing that his wife is “the smart one” and agreeing to give East Tennessee a chance. Dr. Bussey established Endocrinology Consultants of East Tennessee Blount County office in 2006 and practices exclusively at that location. He is outnumbered at home and in his free time does whatever his wife and daughters ask.
