Dr. Travaline is the absolute best physician in his field. He's compassionate, good person and cares deeply about his patients. I wouldn't go to anyone else!!! He always goes out of his way to accommodate me!!

July 27, 2020

Dr. Travaline showed a great deal of concern and I'm looking forward to continuing my medical concerns with him.

February 24, 2020

Five (5) years ago I switched to Dr. Traverline because I was not satisfied with my pulmonologist. He came to me highly recommended by a friend [...]. Prior to being a patient of Dr. T., I would wind up in the ER at least 2 times a year with breathing problems. He completely changed my medication, set me on a maintenance schedule of medication and since that time I have not had one serious issue. I drive 110 miles once a year [...] to Oak Ridge for my annual check-up and I would NOT change physicians ever. He's professional, an excellent physician and as I stated, he has me on a course of treatment that has given me breathing relief. My condition can never heal but his guidance has given me vast relief and I am gratetfull to him beyond words.. And I will continue to drive the distance once a year. TYTY
