Steven F. Hall, M.D., Diplomat American Board of Family Practice
Dr. Hall loves living in Sevier Country. While he is originally from Chattanooga, you don’t have to look too far to find his family around East Tennessee—they are in Sevier, Blount, Hamblen, Bradley, Polk, and Hamilton counties. Steve and his wife Vicki, a Morristown native, have lived in Seymour for over 15 years. They have four boys from college-age down who are always into something. Steve and Vicki and their boys live on a farm near Seymour with 3 dogs, 2 cats, 4 horses, 18 cows, and a bunch of chickens to keep them company.
Besides loving the beauty of East Tennessee, Steve loves its people—his neighbors. He became a doctor because of his desire to help people as they travel life’s journey. That journey is filled with twists and turns—some physical, some mental, some a complex combination of the two—and Dr. Hall desires to help people along that journey. He wants to be a trusted provider to you and your family.
Besides Vicki, his boys, and the farm it is pretty easy to engage him in a conversation about fishing, hiking, the lake, snow-skiing, or church. His favorite thing to do at work besides treating patients is causing trouble amongst his wonderful office staff.
Sandra Byrd, Family Nurse Practitioner
Sandra is unlike most people who live in Sevier County in that she was actually born here! She and her husband, Ken, have four children—two of them near home, one in Atlanta and one in Raleigh. Sandra has been practicing here for 12 years and enjoys working in a practice where the staff is like extended family. Prior to working at Foothills Family Practice she worked at UT Hospital in Women’s Health. She teaches nursing classes and works directly with students from ETSU and Carson Newman.
Sandra is proud to be an East Tennessean and sees it as a privilege to give back to the community through their church, Rural Medical Services, and just serving her friends and neighbors. She loves to hear a patient say thanks because she knows that she has made a difference in someone’s life which is her purpose at work everyday. Whether you are one of those rare native residents, just passing through on your way to Dollywood, or somewhere in between, Sandra would love to provide high-quality, caring medical care to you and your family.
She loves to travel and can be packed to go anywhere in the world with about 30 minutes notice. The next time you are in ask her about ancient Egyptian History as well as her cat and chocolate lab (you might want to ask about the family, too).

Amy Greene, Family Nurse Practitioner
Amy grew up in the small town of St. Charles in southwest VA. She is a proud coal miner’s daughter. She is grateful for her Appalachian heritage but feels very blessed to call East Tennessee her home since 1993. She feels her desire to help others has much to do with the example her parents continue to model always being willing to lend a hand to those in need.
She received her nursing degree at Carson Newman College in 1999. She began her nursing career at Baptist Hospital of East Tennessee where she worked until the hospital closed. She graduated from Frontier Nursing University as a Family Nurse Practitioner in 2013.
She and her husband Randy have three children, Olivia, Sydney, and Adam. She enjoys spending time with her family watching whatever activity her children are participating in. She does enjoy singing with her children, friends, with her church choir as well. When not hiking with friends or family and the weather permits you can find her in the river, planning to go to the river, or just leaving the river. Though she is from Virginia she considers herself a Vol for life and enjoys embarrassing her kids with her enthusiasm during football season.
Amy counts it a privilege to help people in some of their toughest times. She believes every patient encounter is an opportunity to encourage and lift people up while helping them with their health needs or concerns. She enjoys getting to know her patients and their families and being a provider who truly listens to her patients.
Yvette Newcomb, Family Nurse Practitioner
Yvette grew up in the suburbs of Detroit, but we forgive her because she moved to Sevierville and married into a good Sevier County family. Yvette and her husband, Ron, have two boys—Caleb and Brandon. Yvette has been at Foothills Family Practice for 8 years. She is all about listening to her patients. After all, why would they have come to the doctor if they didn’t have something with which they needed help? She is committed to working with people to make improvements in their lives instead of just giving them a long list of do’s and don’ts.
When not busy at work, Yvette loves to spend time with her family and friends. She has 4 Brittany Spaniels at home and has bred them in the past. From her perspective, one of the other benefits of living in East Tennessee is easy access to hiking. Yvette also likes volleyball, swimming, and traveling, too!
