As Williamson County continues to grow, so does the demand for dermatology services, taking weeks and even months to get an appointment. To help alleviate that demand, Williamson County residents and married couple, Megan Morrison, DO and Pezh Shoureshi, DO, are opening Harpeth Valley Dermatology in Thompson’s Station in September.
Harpeth Valley Dermatology will offer general dermatology services, dermatologic surgery, Mohs surgery, aesthetics, phototherapy, laser treatment and pediatric dermatology. The practice will open in September with offices located at 990 Elliston Way in front of the Tollgate subdivision along Columbia Avenue. Dr. Morrison and Dr. Shoureshi, both board-certified, have been practicing in Murfreesboro and Smyrna since 2015.
“Pezh and I were fortunate to build great practices in Murfreesboro and Smyrna but Franklin is where we are raising our family and call home,” said Dr. Morrison. “Williamson County and the surrounding area are underserved markets for dermatology and we’ve had friends express frustration at having to wait so long to get in to see a doctor. Our goal is to provide prompt and comprehensive care for our neighbors at our Thompson’s Station location.”
Dr. Morrison and Dr. Shoureshi will also continue to serve their patient base in the Rutherford County area. They are opening a Harpeth Valley Dermatology office in Smyrna at 741 Presidents Place, Suite 140.
“Megan and I will lead a staff of patient-centered doctors, RNs and administrators that strive to deliver innovative, comprehensive and compassionate care for patients,” Shoureshi said. “We look forward to continuing our work in Smyrna while building our practice in Williamson County. We can’t wait to get started.”
