Dr. Michael McAdoo

Dr. Michael McAdoo, affectionately known as “Mickey”, was born and raised in Martin, Tennessee and later attending University of Tennessee at Martin before enrolling in medical school at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. Upon graduation from UT Health Science Center in 1975, Dr. McAdoo completed his residency at UT Family Medicine St Joseph (now St. Francis), making Chief Resident in his third year.

In 1981, Dr.  McAdoo moved to Milan, Tennessee where he would be a founding partner of the Milan Medical Center.  Dr. McAdoo is known within the community as an excellent diagnostician and had impeccable medical making decisions, but it was the compassion that he embodied that endeared himself to patients.   He has served on the Tennessee Medical Association Judicial Council, the Tennessee Medical Association Board and the SVMIC Board of Directors. 

Dr. McAdoo has served on countless boards such as the Milan Hospital Board, Chamber of Commerce Board, and the Healthcare Foundation Board.  He served as the UT Alumni Council President in 1984 and on the UT National Alumni Association Board of Governors from 1984-1986.  He has dedicated innumerable hours to the Milan School System, most notably as a sports physician which put him on the sidelines of Milan’s football games for almost 40 years.

Although in retirement from medical, Dr. McAdoo is still serving the Milan community in civic roles.  He is currently the City of Milan Ward 1 Alderman, the City of Milan Municipal Court Clerk, and the Milan General Hospital Board Chairman.

Dr. McAdoo has been married to his wife Dixie for fifty years.  They have three children and seven grandchildren.
