Robert Rogers

Physician, CEO-Encompass 360
Emergency Medicine
Dr. Rogers's focus on teaching medical educators how to teach and inspire their learners pivoted in 2021 when he moved back to his hometown of Bristol, Tennessee. His passion shifted from educating educators to educating patients. A growing dissatisfaction with modern medicine and the lack of appreciation for the individuality of patients led Dr. Rogers to develop and create Encompass 360, a genomics-based, precision medicine clinic. In addition, a growing frustration with treating disease at the end of the spectrum, after it was too late, and not having any means to effectively prevent illness, led him to firmly believe that there had to be a better way. He desired to help patients reach their health goals and live healthier, happier lives. Out of this want and desire to make a difference, Encompass 360 was born.
