About Us

Veritas Family Healthcare has a smaller panel of patients than a traditional practice, so our Doctors are able to provide you the level of personal care you deserve.

ABOUT DR. DENHAM

“My name is Scott Denham.  I was born into the family of a career US Navy officer, so I have lived in places such as Hawaii, California, Virginia, Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee.  I attended The University of Alabama School of Medicine in Birmingham. Following that I completed a residency in General Surgery at ETSU Quillen along with additional training in Emergency Medicine.  

I have been working as an Emergency Medicine Doctor for almost six years.  I want to transition to this unique model of practice where I have a chance to treat my patients without outside interferences, spending adequate time with each of them, and being able to treat the whole patient. 

I am blessed to have a wonderful wife, Allyson and three incredible children.  We love the East Tennessee area and all of its beauty.  The seasons, changing leaves and mountains are all evidence of God’s handiwork.  We enjoy getting outside in nature in our freetime.  My family and I are also big sports fans (although we are a house divided – Roll Tide/Go Dawgs).  I look forward to getting to know and serving the people in Greeneville and the surrounding areas.

ABOUT The Clark Family

“As proponents of free market medicine and excellent individualized patient care, we set out to do medicine differently more than 7 years ago. We opened a DPC practice called Black Bag Family Healthcare in Johnson City.  We have grown that practice to having 3 providers and we are passionate about continuing the same type of practice in Greeneville with our newest venture, Veritas Family Healthcare.

 We are excited to carry on the work that Dr. Berry and DirectMD/PATMOS did. Although we won’t be at the Greeneville location daily, you will see us in the office on occasion. Dr. Clark will be covering patient care needs when Dr. Denham is not available or is on vacation. I will be assisting the office staff in managing and continuing the day to day business.

Thank you for trusting us with your healthcare needs!

A NOTE TO MEMBERS

Dear Members,

Thank you for continuing to be a member at DirectMD Greeneville as we have journeyed through this season of transition. We have been working hard to meet your needs and look forward to continuing.

I am pleased to formally announce that Dr. Dustin Clark and his wife, Lauren, purchased the clinic in October and have hired their good friend, Dr. Scott Denham, to be our full-time doctor.

Dr. Denham finished his residency in general surgery at ETSU but has worked as an ER doctor for the past six years. The variety and scope of his experience will be such a blessing to the clinic. Dr. Bennie Smith will also continue to see patients two mornings a week.

Shelia Parker and I will carrying on serving up front with assistance from Brian Cable, LPN, who also works at the Clark’s clinic in Johnson City. Caitlyn Cobble will also continue to help where needed.

The new name of the clinic will be Veritas Family Healthcare and the cost of annual and monthly memberships will remain the same. Be sure to visit our new website to read more about Dr. Denham and his family and the Clarks.

I am so thankful for all the words of encouragement and love from many of you, especially stories of what Robert meant as a doctor and a friend. I know he would be pleased with this continuation of providing personal, quality, economical healthcare in a way that respects each patient’s needs and honors the Lord.

DR. ROBERT STREET BERRY

Robert was born in 1958 in Morganton, NC, and grew up in Chapel Hill, NC.

He graduated from North Carolina State University, and the University of North Carolina School of Medicine. He received a graduate Diploma in Christian studies from Regent College in Vancouver, BC.  He trained at a top tier residency program in Primary Care Internal Medicine at University of Alabama in Birmingham.

It was in Birmingham that Blair and Robert met and later married. Blair and Robert had two daughters, Margaret and Bekah, who are both registered nurses.

The Berry family moved to Greeneville in 1996, and Robert worked in the ER department of the former Takoma Hospital for several years. He opened PATMOS Emergiclinic in 2001 and was a strong advocate for the fee-for-service model and later the Direct Primary Care model.

Dr. Berry was loved by his patients, and was a caring and skilled provider that served the community enthusiastically.

Great atmosphere, amazing employees, quick service, employees with a sense of humor.  THE BEST!

BUDDY C.

I have used Dr. Berry as my primary physician for approximately 15 years.  He always has time to do a thorough physical exam, listen to your symptoms and complaints, and answer all your questions.  The staff is just as great as Dr. Berry.  I would not go to anyone else.

WENDY B.

I adore Dr. Berry and his staff.  They are like family…Dr. Berry is very kind, listens to your concerns and helps with his expertise and knowledge.  He has been my Dr. for over 15 years.
