Our Story

Committed to providing the most effective, clinically superior physical therapy

Our mission is to serve our patients.

We are part of the Upstream Rehabilitation family of clinical care, a leading operator of outpatient physical therapy clinics in the United States.

VIP Physical Therapy, LLC, formerly Premier Therapy Associates, has served East Tennessee since 1999.  Our facility and family have been honored to provide outpatient Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy to Cocke and surrounding counties for 13 years.

We offer a Fitness Gym which is both medically oriented and open to the public, along with many more wellness services. Our company is based on evidence-based and patient centered practice with the love of ministry-based care to each other, our clients, and the surrounding communities.  As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals.

We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust while delivering your care and coaching you to a more healthy lifestyle and improved daily function.

We strive to provide an inclusive work environment where our differences are celebrated for the value they bring to our communities, our patients and our teammates, and we commit to continue to focus on diversifying every level of our workforce accordingly.

Through exceptional care and remarkable experiences, we choose to be the outpatient provider, employer, and partner of choice.
