Dr. Andrew Sugantharaj,
Dr. Andrew Sugantharaj has been helping people within the East Tennessee area live happier healthier lives since 1995. Dr. Sugantharaj’s philosophy of hard work and diligence was inherited from his parents who paved the way to success themselves and encouraged him to do the same. Dr. Sugantharaj grew up in Knoxville and earned his BS in Biology from Wheaton College of Illinois. He then went on to earn his medical degree, and completed his residency at East Tennessee State University James H. Quillen College of Medicine in 1992.
Dr. S (as his patients affectionately call him) has almost 20 years of experience and specializes in Internal Medicine and Hospital Critical Care. He began work as a hospitalist at Methodist Medical Health Center in Oak Ridge, and after 9 years accepted an opportunity in 2003 to aid in the development of Baptist Hospital West (now Tennova Turkey Creek Hospital) with their critical care and inpatient program. Dr. Sugantharaj continued to gain experience as the director of “The Hospitalist Group” at Baptist Hospital West.
Inspired by his personal connection to each and every patient, Dr. Sugantharaj is now the founder of Complete Family Care of Knoxville, TN. He works directly with each patient to build rapport and actively listen to their concerns to effectively meet their individual needs. In addition to his private practice, Dr. Sugantharaj also has a narcotic addiction recovery program which allows him to take Complete Family Care one step further in providing the standard of care for the Knoxville community.
Dr. Andrew Sugantharaj is focused on patient care, and his passion is to empower people to take control of their health to lead happier, healthier lives. When he is not focused on patient care, Dr. Sugantharaj enjoys fitness, hiking the Smokies, riding his motorcycle, time with family and friends, and being an active member in his church ministry. As he often quotes: “You can only be responsible for your effort; you cannot control the outcome. Therefore, put forth your utmost daily!”
