Welcome to Integrative Family Medicine of Asheville

We believe that healthcare can be done differently. We opened our clinic to make quality, primary care affordable for you.

By treating the ‘whole you’ and providing comprehensive care, we address the roots of your concerns. We integrate Western Medicine and natural methods to fit your needs. We provide longer visits than the typical doctor, so that we have time to understand you and effectively address you concerns.

Instead of billing insurance, we provide the paperwork for you to submit for reimbursement yourself. This keeps our relationship focused on you instead of on requirements of the insurance company. By removing insurance from our relationship we are able to lower prices, provide longer visits, and personalize care to your needs. Although this is different from what you may be used to, please don’t worry! We are happy to explain all the details. We have found that patients usually save money by pairing our care with insurance plans. Please click this link for more information.

The Integrative Life Program

The Integrative Life Program is our way of making comprehensive primary care accessible to more people. We have designed the program to offer personalized care emphasizing natural approaches, health education, nutrition, and lifestyle plans that address your whole life.

Visits outside of the Integrative Life Program

We have designed the Integrative Life Program to be the most cost-effective way to obtain comprehensive, personalized primary care. We understand that some patients will only need to address one or two urgent complaints. As an alternative to the Integrative Life Program, we offer individual visits at a rate of $90 for a 20 minute visit. Your will meet with board-certified MD’s trained in both Family and Integrative Medicine. We can usually address 1-2 acute (recent) concerns in this time frame. Additional fees would apply for any labs, procedures, or interpretation of outside testing. All prices are clearly posted.

For chronic or ongoing concerns, we require that our patients establish with the clinic and obtain a physical annually to remain an active patient. The initial establish care visit is 40 minutes, and the annual physical is 30 minutes. We can only manage ongoing concerns for active patients. For more information about visit types, click here.

Insurance

Though we do not bill insurance, we provide all of the material for you to submit reimbursement. This works well with many Affordable Care Act Plans and often saves you money. For more information on filing insurance see here.

Classes

It is easier to live a healthy life in a healthy community. We invest in our local community by donating all profits from supplements to local non-profits. We also sponsor regular classes to teach practical skills for both individual and community health. See the schedule for more information.

Employers

We have options for small and large businesses. We are happy to work with local businesses to find affordable solutions. Often we can provide better care at significant savings. See here for more information.
