Dear Patients of Asheville Medicine and Pediatrics


We know Covid-19 has created tremendous stress and worry for everyone. We are doing our very best to assure the safety and health of our patients. We are following the guidelines as set forth by the CDC and the NC Department of Public Health and hope to contain this virus as soon as possible. We need all of your help to do so. Please heed the recommendations of the CDC as per this link.

Here is what we are doing:

We are offering telemedicine visits for appropriate visit types. Please call the office to inquire if you do not feel safe coming into the office to be seen personally.

We also have started implementing designated "WELL" and "SICK' office times. We hope this will ensure that our most vulnerable populations will not have exposures to illness.

We understand this is an inconvenience for some, and we are asking for patience with this transition, but we feel it is best for the safety of our patients and staff. This is a constantly changing event and we will be adjusting as necessary.

At Asheville Medicine & Pediatrics, with offices in Arden and Asheville, we offer personalized, quality care for both children and adults. Our physicians are all dual board-certified in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics providing a synergy of training that allows them to provide the best care possible for patients of all ages. We are a small, independent, private practice allowing us to form true relationships with our patients. We strive to provide you or your children with the most up-to-date and quality care available.

As our technology and knowledge of medicine have advanced, modern medical care has become increasingly complex. Many situations present questions that do not have a “right” or “wrong” answer. We get to know every patient personally so that medical decision-making is a shared experience. We want to empower patients by involving them in medical decisions related to their health. By focusing on this approach we are able to provide medical care tailored to each individual patient.

Asheville Medicine and Pediatrics trained physicians have completed a four-year residency consisting of 24 months each of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics training. Having trained and maintaining board certification in both specialties allows us a diverse fund of knowledge. Our training provides extensive experience in complex disease management of adults and children, acute illness care, as well as developmental and behavioral problems in children, adolescents, and aging adults. We are prepared to provide our patients with the most up to date and evidence-based care available.

We offer same-day sick appointments, telemedicine visits, a patient portal, skin and female pelvic revitalization, developmental screens, in-house laboratory services, and after-hours care. Patients never get a voicemail when they call the office, instead, they always reach one of our friendly staff members. Our team warmly welcomes patients to the practice and looks forward to serving patients of all ages.
