The practice has two locations: 281 N. Lyerly St., Suite 100, Chattanooga, TN 37404 and 1949 Gunbarrel Road, Suite 285, Chattanooga, TN 37421.  A new North Georgia office will open in November at 4700 Battlefield Pkwy., Ringgold, GA 30736.  Office hours are Monday–Friday 9 a.m,-5 p.m.; Saturday 9 a.m.–noon; and Sunday by appointment only.
