Candi Overholt, MD
Working at Takoma Regional Hospital brings Dr. Candi Cashen Overholt full circle. Dr. Overholt was actually born at Takoma, before growing up in her hometown of neighboring Parrottsville.
Dr. Overholt, who specializes in internal medicine with Takoma Medical Associates, decided while in high school that she wanted to become a physician. She worked for a primary care physician in Newport while attending high school and college, and fell in love with the local patients. “I knew I wanted to work as a doctor one day in East Tennessee,” she said. “I knew I wanted to serve in my community.”
After receiving her medical degree from the University of Tennessee and completing her residency in internal medicine at Wake Forest Baptist University in Winston Salem, N.C., Dr. Overholt returned to live in her hometown of Parrottsville. She and her husband, Dan Overholt, have two children.
Dr. Overholt said she chose to work at Takoma because of its Christian foundation. “I’ve never worked anywhere where they pray at board meetings and pray with patients,” she said. “I love it here. There are pictures of Jesus everywhere. I love being part of the healing ministry of Christ, which is at the very heart of Takoma.”
Dr. Overholt said she believes strongly in patient education. “The patients ultimately make the decisions about their healthcare,” she said. “I just give them the information they need to make an informed decision.”
