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.
Blue Ridge Premier Medicine is billed as concierge medicine, where the doctors have "time and attention" for patient care. Hint: when such a "relationship based" practice cancels your first appointment - a "meet and greet" to assess fit scheduled several weeks in advance - at the last minute....let's just say I can get that type of "attention and care" for free (vs. their $2700 annual fee) in the current "public school" version of our medical system. Wow.
I would love to give 0 stars (not an option) but I can rationalize the one star for the very effective screening process, although perhaps not in the way I expected. On the plus side, the receptionist was very sorry I "felt that way" when I declined to reschedule the appointment. Note: she was not sorry they wasted my time or that she waited until the last minute to cancel a several week old appointment or that I drove 4 hours into town for nothing....she seemed sorry only that I found this treatment an unacceptable start to a "relationship."
Last note: my boyfriend and I just moved to Asheville and he is currently a (new) patient at the practice. So this is actually how they treat _referrals_ of existing patients. In a "relationship-based" CONCIERGE practice. It's actually pretty funny...thanks for the laugh, BRP!
This practice claims to give you extra special treatment,at a price tag of $2700 annual membership just to walk in the door. They must think they are in hollywood! When I called to see if I could get an appt. The receptionist asked me if I was a conceirge?This tells me these Drs'. value $$$ more than caring for folks.Would not recommend.
