Alexander William Rich, MD, is a radiologist at Regional One Health and an assistant professor in the Department of Radiology at University of Tennessee Health Science Center. Dr. Rich received his medical degree from University of North Carolina School of Medicine in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. He completed his radiology residency at University of Tennessee Health Science Center and his neuroradiology fellowship at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.
“I became a physician because I have always enjoyed making a difference in people’s lives for the better, and what better way than keeping them healthy,” Dr. Rich said. “I chose radiology, with a focus on neuroradiology, because the smallest imaging findings can be responsible for pretty significant symptoms and I like to think that my help can often make a dramatic difference in patients’ lives.”
Alongside his specialization in radiology and neuroradiology, Dr. Rich has specific training in performing CT-guided spinal pain injections.
“I enjoy these procedures because I can carefully direct exactly where the medication goes and can often see results quickly,” Dr. Rich shared. “Being able to alleviate chronic back pain is something I am looking forward to sharing with patients in the Mid-South.”
