Williamson Medical Center (WMC) added primary care physician Alessandra Glaser, M.D., to Williamson Medical Group (WMG).
Glaser joined the WMG Family Medicine team on the WMC campus this month. She will assume care for the patients of John Thompson, M.D., who wish to remain in the Franklin location, in addition to taking new patients. Thompson will transition to the new WMG Nolensville clinic.
Glaser is board certified in family medicine. She completed her residency at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, after receiving her medical degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Her alma mater is the University of Illinois at Urbana – Champaign, where she majored in biology.
“WMG is proud to offer expert primary care services for the communities we serve,” Williamson Medical Center CEO Donald Webb said. “Dr. Glaser’s commitment to comprehensive, personalized care will make her an excellent addition to our leading group of healthcare providers.”
Before joining WMG, she formerly worked as an emergency medicine physician in the TriStar Emergency Department in Spring Hill. Originally from Chicago, Glaser resides in Williamson County with her husband and two young sons.
“At Mayo, my mentor and residency director Dr. Robert Bonacci emphasized putting the patient's needs first,” Glaser said. “Interwoven with this, he said, was patient education. Once a patient understands their options of care, we are then better able to support them in their decision. I also left residency with evidence-based medicine and a collaborative work environment. I see this reflected in the WMG team, and I am excited to be a part of it.”
Glaser’s office is located on the Williamson Medical Center campus at 4323 Carothers Parkway, Suite 505, in Franklin. She is currently accepting new patients ages 18 and over.
