After years of excruciating pain and doctors who wouldn't listen or treat the pain I finally found this practice. Dr. Mironer and the PAs took a proactive approach to finding the root of my pain. Dr. Mironer gave me injections relatively painless both during the procedure and afterward. He has a very dry sense of humor which I thoroughly enjoyed and the PAs listen, are sympathetic and again, proactive in treating the pain. The tests they ordered led to finding the root cause of my pain and have been managing the pain ever since with great success. I would recommend this practice to anyone who is truly interested in finding out why they have pain and are appreciative of procedures to to manage it. They are at first reluctant to prescribe pain medicine with good reason given the number of drug seekers today. Once they assess the needs of the patients however they medicate well to manage the pain. I would recommend this practice to anyone.
Staff is generally nice. My biggest issue is actually getting fast call backs for results. For example, I had an ultrasound done on my abdomen at the beginning of the month, and here it is over 3 weeks later and still have not had any contact about my results. When I call, my doctor is out and I was told "I'll leave a message but I have no idea when she will get back with you". I know doctors need their vacations too, but this is the third time I have tried to either get results back or make an appointment and received this response. I even had to reschedule an appointment the day before I was to be seen because the doctor was not going to be in. It is very frustrating rearranging my schedule with such late notice from their office. Once you are able to make it to the office, the office staff is really nice.
I am a physician who, along with my wife, has been a patient of this practice for the last 2 years. Each of the doctors have sterling reputations in the Asheville medical community, and although I had never worked with them I knew of their excellence. I have never been disappointed and they have seen us expertly through some trying times, including the middle of the night. Non-physician friends who I have referred have had the same experience, so I don't think I'm getting anything special because I am a doctor. Their fee is considerable, but to spare readers a lecture on the current state of medical economics, it is entirely reasonable In order to offer the services they provide. Concierge medicine is a national movement and we are lucky to have it available here. I heartily recommend this practice and each of it's doctors.
