Matthew Tinney, D.O., is a practicing physician at MetroHealth. He started his career in 1989 when he graduated from Nova Southeastern University College of Osteopathic Medicine. From there, he began his post-graduate training and became Board Certified in Family Practice in 1995. Dr. Tinney worked as a family practitioner and ER doctor in Florida until 1997, when he relocated to Chattanooga to work in the ER at Memorial Hospital. In 2008, he moved on to become the ER director at Rhea County Hospital.
During his 20+ years of ER experience, Dr. Tinney realized that waiting until you’re already sick is not the best approach to wellness. He felt that it would be better to focus on staying well instead of getting well. That’s when he became a member of the American Academy for Anti-Aging Medicine. From there, he became a Fellow and received board certification in Anti-Aging Medicine.
Outside of the office, Dr. Tinney enjoys taking gourmet cooking classes, hiking and walking the beach with his girlfriend Kathy and dog Sydney. He also has a passion for photography and once held the position of head photographer on his college newspaper staff.
