Leslie Cuevas, MD is announcing the opening of her rheumatology practice, Cuevas Center for Arthritis and Fibromyalgia. The center is located in Franklin, next to Williamson Medical Center and opened Jan. 25. Cuevas previously practiced with Saint Thomas Medical Group located at Saint Thomas West Hospital.

Cuevas Center provides personalized treatment plans to give the right type of care for the patients’ needs, “I want to give each of my patients my direct time and attention so I know they are getting the right care,” says Dr. Cuevas. “My passion is helping patients find their healing and seeing them live a full life.”

Cuevas is a board-certified rheumatologist and completed her rheumatology fellowship at Vanderbilt University. She received her internal medicine residency at the University of Tennessee and then went on to seminary school and studied Soul Care in Denver.

“Dr. Cuevas has been a blessing in my life. She goes above and beyond trying to help her patients, and I respect and love that,” says Ashley Timberlake, a patient of Cuevas. “I drive over an hour to see her, and every minute of my drive is worth it. It is difficult to find doctors who genuinely care about you as a person, and will listen. She does all of this and more.”

The Cuevas Center will not accept insurance, and each visit will be self-pay. After the appointment, patients will be given a receipt, and they can submit this to their insurance for consideration of reimbursement.
