Korin Gourley Cottam, M.D., F.A.C.O.G.
a full time physician, mother, and wife, Dr. Cottam understands all
the demands and challenges women of today encounter. Her practice has
grown since her arrival in Knoxville in 1999, in large part, due to
her being able to relate to a wide variety of patient concerns and
problems. Her practice includes all aspects of general Obstetrical
and Gynecologic care, including counseling, annual exam, problem visits
One of her special interests is in the field of adolescent care. She feels
that establishing a trusting relationship and providing teens with
a basic understanding of normal growth and development can guide them through
their changing years. A second interest is in the personal management of
her obstetrical patients. She enjoys establishing an open relationship with
the new mothers and their families to create a memorable birthing experience.
Her third interest is in the field of preventative care and health maintenance.
She encourages and supports patients to increase their positive behaviors
such as exercise, healthy eating habits, and stress management. Her belief
is that maintaining a healthy lifestyle is a life long challenge and commitment.
