About Us

As an independent practice, the difference is personal.


The nearly 90 physicians of Tryon Medical Partners joined forces because we share a core belief: the patient-doctor connection is the foundation for better health. This is the reason we are an independent practice. It allows us to remain true to our principles, while delivering better care rooted in stronger relationships.

What are the benefits of choosing an independent practice?

  • Value – We are able to practice medicine and conduct business nimbly and efficiently, with fewer layers of bureaucracy in our way – or our patients’.
  • Transparency – As a leaner organization, we are in direct contact with our patients and partners. Keeping it personal means serving with integrity and accountability.
  • Choice – In the changing world of healthcare, consolidation has become the new normal, and options are shrinking. We created an independent practice because we believe more choices should be available to everyone. Better health comes from having more than a healthcare provider. It takes a healthcare partner.

Independent thinking. It’s in our DNA.

Tryon Medical Partners continues the tradition of one of our region’s great medical pioneers, who saw a better way to practice medicine back in 1936. Dr. James Moses Alexander first opened his practice on the north end of Tryon Street in Uptown Charlotte, North Carolina. He was joined by a group of like-minded physicians over the decades, and together they established Mecklenburg Medical Group in 1972. The practice was remarkable not only for its longevity, but for its reputation. Dr. Alexander and his colleagues were so respected and beloved, it was not uncommon for them to care for three generations of families.

As the Charlotte region continues its steady growth, those of us inspired by Dr. Alexander’s model of dedicated care are committed to his legacy. Our name, Tryon Medical Partners, honors the original location of Dr. Alexander’s office. But as proud as we are of our heritage, we are even more excited about our future and the opportunity to grow. In 2021, Tryon Medical Partners added Gaston Medical Partners to expand its reach beyond Mecklenburg County and support independent physicians aligned with the mission of ‘Stronger Relationships. Better Health.’

We look forward to the opportunity to continue existing relationships and create new ones. We will continue to embrace innovation in our specialty areas of internal and family medicine, cardiology, dermatology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, gynecology and sexual health, pulmonology, rheumatology, and sleep medicine. And above all, we will focus on the intersection of art and science in medicine – combining the empirical knowledge and the personal touch that are essential to giving each patient the best experience possible.

This is what a true partnership is all about.
