Dr. Matthew Tinney DO

Dr. Tinney started his career in 1989 when he graduated from Nova South Eastern College of Osteopathic Medicine.  From there he started his post graduate training in 1989 and was Board Certified in Family Practice in 1985.

He worked as a family practitioner and ER doctor in Florida until 1997 when he relocated to Chattanooga to work in the ER at Memorial Hospital.  In 2008, he moved on to become the ER director at Rhea County Hospital.

During his 20+ years of ER experience, Dr. Tinney realized that waiting until you’re already sick is not the best approach to wellness.  He felt that it would be better to focus on staying well instead of getting well.  That’s when he became a member of the American Academy for Anti-Aging Medicine.  He went from there to becoming a Fellow and is Boarded in Anti-Aging Medicine.

Marchel Tinney FNP

Marchel became a nurse in 2001, and worked primarily in the ER.  Later, she moved on to become Boarded as a Family Nurse Practitioner in 2007.

She focused on specializing her skills in family practice, wellness medicine, medical injections, Botox, and Juvederm.

When she met her husband, Dr. Matthew Tinney, she discovered that they both shared the same passion – helping people lead a healthier life.  When he explained his goal of helping people focus on staying well instead of getting well, she knew he was on to something.

In 2010, Marchel and Dr. Tinney opened Circle of Life Family Medicine in Dayton, TN.  Then in 2015, they moved to Hixson, TN to allow them to reach a greater number of patients.
