Born in Augusta, Georgia, but raised in southern Ohio by parents native to Chattanooga, Dr. Mary McKenzie has always felt she had southern roots. Pursuing medicine has always been a life-long dream. She graduated valedictorian of her local high school then went on to attend Otterbein University where she majored in life science and played volleyball. She graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree with Honors in 2002. Under the US Air Force Health Professions Scholarship Program, she was commissioned second lieutenant attending Maxwell AFB Officer Training School in 2003. She graduated from Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2007. After completing her internship in Emergency Medicine at Doctors Hospital, Columbus, Ohio she went on to serve her active duty tour for four years. Stationed in middle Georgia at Robins AFB, Captain McKenzie was trained as a flight surgeon specialized in aerospace medicine, primarily managing the care of aviators and special operations personnel. In 2015, she completed her residency in Family Medicine at the University of Tennessee College of Medicine - Chattanooga. Dr. McKenzie served as Chief Resident and was awarded the Outstanding Resident Teaching Award.
Her passion for the integrative medicine model evolvednaturally as an osteopathic trained physician. A holistic approach to patientcare is a mindset that takes into consideration the whole person. It acknowledges all the facets that contribute to health and well-being; the mind and body are connected. Patients need to feel heard and understood. Offering several medical disciplines (acupuncture, nutrition, mental health, hormone replacement, andmassage) allows a patient easier access to more options for their healthcare. The mind-body-spirit triad to health andhealing is exemplified by this practice and Dr. McKenzie.
She lives on Signal Mountain with her husband and three beautiful, rambunctious boys.
