Quality Poor to less than fair
This establishment is a disgrace to anyone who pays taxes to keep it running. It is obvious this place is a government cheap care clinic!(There is a sign that says it is upheld and ran by tax money inside of the building) The start of my visit was fantastic, if the rest of the visit continued this way I would have absolutely no complaints. The recepionists are great, super friendly and polite - obviously not a part of the cheap medical staff! As I had been waiting for over 2 hours I started to notice that there were some medical assistants running into the receptionist area and they were reading magazines. I'm sorry, but if you have the time to read a magazine, I should not be waiting at all. Then, I finally get into the back after sitting there for about 4 hours, I saw a doctor for maybe 30 seconds. Let me just tell you this, I don't know where they got these doctors from, but to me they seemed very unintelligent. The doctor did not even listen to my concerns at all, he rushed in and out as fast as he possibly could, and then told me he did not know what the side effects of the medicine he prescribed me were, or what the other one (I received 2 prescriptions) was even for that I would have to talk to the paharmacist. Really? Why prescribe me something if you don't know why. Also, this was a worker's comp claim. It is now the day after and I have still not received any of my medication because SMUC has not faxed over my billing information that I asked them to before I left. I have been back and forth between this place and the pharmacy trying to figure out what needs to be done, and the pharmacy is more concerned with my well being than SMUC. I will NOT return here for any reason, I wold rather drive all the way to Knoxville. I highly reccommend AVOIDING this place if you are ill.

I noticed a thread on SMOKY MOUNTAIN URGENT CARE on TOPIX in Sevierville before. Now it is missing? Guess what? Those at this clinic are obviously connected! The SMOKY MOUNTAIN URGENT CARE it said IS OWNED BY THE LECONTE HOSPITAL - and they keep that hidden! SECRET REVEALED - SMUC IS OWNED BY LECONTE HOSPITAL! It's an extension of this lousy hospital in Sevier County! STAY AWAY! All the locals know this already! Just ask them!

Actually.....It is owned by a group of physicians who are either employed by Covenenat Health or Team Health. LeConte or Covenenat does not own, endorse, or otherwise have any affiliation with SMUC.

My sister was injured while in Tenn. & went to the Smokey Mt Immediate Care place. She was told that since she had no insurance she had to pay $100 before they would see her & the rest before she left. She wanted them just to bandage her hand but Dr. said she could not leave without stitches. When she left she paid the balance (about $300 in all). She misplaced her care instructions & called but no one would tell her how to care for the wound!! Although she was told that all charges had to be paid before she left AND she paid what they asked, a week and a half later she received another bill for even more money!! Definitely a rip off place

What a joke this place is. It's all about the money!!!! I should know. I worked there. I can't even begin to tell you the closed door politics going on in this place. Door open discussions are comments such as when a patient walks through the front door they say quietly to one another quietly "go home pain in the a$$ people". The main doctor isn't even a general family MD. He's just a regular general surgeon. His daughter and her puppets run the place like a prison with the employees. They act more like wardens than leaders. It's no wonder they have such a HIGH turnover with employees. Not only a high turnover with employees but the PHYSICIANS as well. I love how they can charge their patients outrageous prices and pay their employees pennies. They like to keep most employees part time so they don't have to offer health insurance, etc. The few full time employees work an average of 14 hour days. So very sad.....,however ALL true.

I went there once and will NEVER go back! I was barely looked at and misdiagnosed with the wrong medicine. Spent a fortune and had to go to another doctor for proper treatment. Don't go there!!!!
