About Dr. John Overholt

John Overholt, MD

John Overholt, MD, founded Allergy & Asthma Associates of Middle Tennessee in 2001. At that time, the clinic operated out of a single office in Brentwood with only two employees. Dr. Overholt’s desire was to bring exceptional, individual care to allergic and asthmatic patients in Middle Tennessee. Since then the practice has grown to include offices stretching from Hendersonville to Columbia, but his goal has remained the same: provide the best in individualized care for each patient.
