Anna Kapoor

Clinic Administrator

Anna Kapoor, Dr. Kapoor’s wife, also works at Pinecrest. As a teenager, Anna remembers babysitting for a veterinarian’s family in her hometown and occasionally stepping into action at that clinic. Little did she know that several years later she would marry a veterinarian, who also had to often-times leave home for emergencies at all hours. Anna is a registered nurse certified in oncology nursing and took care of patients at the Johnson City Medical Center Hospital for 20 years. Because she is a strong patient advocate and continues to keep current in nursing, Anna often finds the opportunity to use her skill to serve on medical mission teams. Anna enjoys gardening, knitting and cooking in her spare time.

Anna recently received the AARP Andrus Award for the State of Tennessee. This award recognizes outstanding community volunteer service. She serves in many different volunteer roles at church, a local soup kitchen, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, the Mexico Medical Mission team, Johnson City District Partners in Mission with Czechia, the ETSU Wesley Foundation and others.
