COOKEVILLE — There will soon be another Dr. Moore joining the ranks of Cookeville Regional’s medical staff where he will be joined by Dr. Yatsynovich.

Dr. Aaron Moore, urologist, is eager to help patients in Cookeville and the region with any urologic problems they may have.

“I find urology to be the most energized and enjoyable field,” he said. “You get to do surgeries and build relationships in the clinics.”

With his arrival, he will be bringing robotics back to urology.

“The robotic capabilities really grab your attention in training,” he said. “I’ve done things the old way, and then robotic surgeries come along and completely changes it. About 90% of prostate removals are done robotically now.”

Moore is originally from Illinois, earning his BA in chemistry from Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington, Illinois. He then went on to earn his medical degree from the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine in Springfield, Illinois. He then completed his internship and residency at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, Mississippi.

Prior to coming to Cookeville, he was an assistant professor in the University of Mississippi Medical Center’s division of urology.

He is a member of the American Urological Association and the American Medical Association.

“I chose Cookeville because I see a very supportive practice environment,” he said. “I’m eager to start helping patients here.”

Outside of medicine, he enjoys spending time with his wife, who is currently doing a fellowship at Vanderbilt University, and their five-month-old child.

Dr. Moore is taking new patients. Call 931-783-4103 to make an appointment.

New interventional cardiologist

Dr. Yan Yatsynovich is the newest interventional cardiologist to join the team at Tennessee Heart.

“I grew up in a family of doctors,” he said. “It was natural for me to become a doctor.”

He’s a third-generation physician. His father is a psychiatrist and mother a family medicine physician.

“The biggest part for me was their passion for it,” he said. “As I started to get older, I saw that the best way I can help people is through medicine. I don’t think of it as a job, or a career, but as a calling and needs a lot of dedication.”

He was born and grew up in Belarus. They then moved to Canada, then the United States where he finished high school. 

He then went to Romania for medical school, then went to Ohio for internal medicine, then New York Buffalo for cardiology training, then back to Ohio for interventional cardiology.

“I think this specialty can offer to people, from personal relationships to what you can do to prevent and treat the disease, is what interests me the most,” he said. “I wake up every morning and love going to work. I love helping people.”

He’s excited to work with the other cardiologists at Tennessee Heart.

“We have a great, supportive and collegial group,” he said. “We have so much here that patients don’t have to travel to Nashville or Knoxville.”

His focus is on complex coronary disease treatments, specifically those patients who are high risk for surgery or have blockages that are not easily treated.

“This is where I pictured I would practice,” he said of his choice in practicing at Cookeville Regional. “The spectrum of treatments to offer, but the physicians are tied into the community. You can make a difference at a community level which is very sensible.” 

When he’s not in the office, he enjoys spending time with wife and family. He also enjoys running, cooking and playing chess.

He is ready to see patients at Tennessee Heart. Call 931-372-0405 to make an appointment.

“These two specialties are growing tremendously and are needed in the Upper Cumberland,” said Paul Korth, Cookeville Regional CEO. “We’re happy to have these two new physicians on board and will be welcoming more in the next few months.”
