Rheumatologist who capped her training at seminary opens practice in Franklin

Leslie Cuevas, MD, is opening a rheumatology practice on Jan. 25, Cuevas Center for Arthritis and Fibromyalgia, next to Williamson Medical Center.

Cuevas previously practiced with Saint Thomas Medical Group located at Saint Thomas West Hospital.

Cuevas Center provides personalized treatment plans for patients.

“I want to give each of my patients my direct time and attention so I know they are getting the right care,” Cuevas said in announcing her new pratice. “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,” patient Ashley Timberlake said. “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.

Appointments are available through her office at 615-673-4787. For more information on Cuevas Center for Arthritis and Fibromyalgia visit www.CuevasCenter.com.

Rheumatologists deal mainly with autoimmune disorders of the musculoskeletal system (such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus) as well as numerous types of arthritis (gout, osteoarthritis) and conditions causing widespread pain such as fibromyalgia.
