Williamson Medical Group is excited to announce that beginning Feb. 1, board-certified general and critical care surgeon Ysela Carrillo, M.D. and family medicine physician Dana Chandler, D.O. will join WMG as full-time providers.
Carrillo is originally from Albuquerque, NM, where she completed medical school at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine. Following a trauma and critical care fellowship at Vanderbilt, she remained on faculty practicing both general surgery and surgical critical care until 2004.
She then went on to practice at Texas Tech University. She returned to Nashville in private practice and in 2007 rejoined Vanderbilt University’s Department of Surgery in Williamson County. During that time she established her surgical practice at Williamson Medical Center with Vanderbilt. Over the course of the last 10 years at Williamson Medical Center, she is very accustomed to the community as well as to the WMC staff and surgery teams.
Carrillo, who has been a practicing surgeon since 1999, said she learned early on in medical school that she had strong interest in surgery and knew that it was the right career path for her. Although she enjoys taking care of basic general surgery issues, she is able to take on cases that are more difficult because of her background in critical care surgery.
Carrillo will join WMG’s surgery team consisting of A.J. Bethurum, M.D., Preston Brown, M.D., and Dustin Smith, M.D., at 4601 Carothers Parkway in Franklin, just a few blocks from the medical center.
Chandler, who hails from Adamsville, TN, will join WMG’s practice located in Thompson’s Station at Tollgate Medical Plaza. She will reunite with high school friend Anna Herring PA-C in that office.
Chandler attended medical school at Nova Southeastern College of Osteopathic Medicine and after graduation did her residency with the Family Medicine Residency Program at North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo, MS. Since 2009, Chandler has been with Family Health Group in Mount Pleasant, TN.
Tim Burton, WMC’s associate administrator for operations, who oversees Williamson Medical Group, said he couldn’t be more excited to add two physicians the caliber of Carrillo and Chandler to the roster of WMG physicians.
