Do you have BCBS? We are happy to see you!!

Posted by: Eleanor on August 2nd, 2017

We at Asheville Pediatrics feel very blessed to be proudly independent for more that 75 years. We have always prided ourselves on our excellent medical care and wonderful relationships with local Mission pediatric specialists. However, we are also parents and understand the financial burden that parents of children with special medical needs face. As such, we remain committed to contracting with all major insurers (BCBS, United Health Care, MedCost, Aetna, Cigna, Tricare, Medicaid, etc).

Daytime sick clinic drop-in is here!!

Posted by: Eleanor on January 31st, 2017

It’s coming….

Starting tomorrow, February 1, we are beginning a daytime drop-in clinic for sick and acute care visits!

We will still have our early morning drop-in from 7:45-8:30, but we’re extending our drop-in hours to 9:30-11:30 in the morning and 1:30-3:30 in the afternoon. These are for sick visits only (sore throats, cough, runny nose, fever, tummy ache of less than 1-2 weeks duration, etc). This is NOT for seeing children for routine well visits and ongoing medical conditions (ADHD, chronic headache, abdominal pain, depression, etc). We believe a crucial aspect of pediatrics is the relationship each child and … Read full article
