Mike Carrigan, MD
Dr. Vernon Michael “Mike” Carrigan has strong roots in Clarksville, Tennessee, and has been loyal to the residents of the area throughout his medical career. As a teenager, he was a proud Clarksville High School Wildcat. His higher education journey started at Austin Peay State University where he completed his undergraduate work. He received his MD from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center and completed both his Internal Medicine internship and residency at Methodist Hospital – Memphis. Dr. Carrigan is Board Certified and is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians and the American College of Physician Executives.
In January of 1980, Dr. Carrigan started his private practice back here in his home town. In 1993, Dr. Denise Milam became his partner and also joined him as a founding member of Premier Medical Group in January 1995. After 36 years of caring for thousands of patients, Dr. Carrigan retired in December of 2015 to change his focus in medicine. Now, as Chief Administrator of Premier, he finds as much enjoyment and satisfaction leading the business side of the multi-specialty practice. He believes that in working with others, he can have a positive effect on providing quality, compassionate heath care for the entire community.
Dr. Carrigan is an avid reader, writer, bridge player and occasional golfer. Other hobbies include traveling and chronicling trips and the life of his family and friends through photography. He greatly enjoys spending time on his ancestral family farm in Montgomery County, where he is involved with a ministry that assists in the restoration of lives struggling with addiction.
