The Integrative Primary Care Practice for a Healthier Asheville

The Status Quo Isn’t working for Most Patients – We’re Different

We believe that health care can be done differently. We are an integrative direct primary care practice based in Asheville that emphasizes the relationship between doctor and patient and takes into account the whole person.

Our goal is to partner with each patient to help them live their best lives and to take charge of their health. We practice evidence-based western medicine with a goal of prioritizing interventions that are prevention-focused.

Our direct-payment model (also known as Direct Primary Care) works to restore the personal relationship with your physician and removes the insurance obstacles that could prevent us from focusing on our patient’s overall health.

What our Patients are Saying…

[Aimee was] Very professional and seemed genuine. Would definitely trust her with all my health care needs. Seems more knowledgeable than some MDs I have met with in previous years.  

Verified Patient


As always, Dr. Krisel is an excellent listener, explains conditions in a clear and understandable manner, and provides solutions adapted to each patient.

Verified Patient


Elizabeth provides the best medical care I’ve ever received. Moreover, she’s a joy to meet with. We actually look forward to our appointments.

Verified Patient


LOVE this group .. everyone is so friendly and concerned and organized. Dr. Brian positively exudes care and concern and an optimistic holistic approach. I believe this may be exactly what I have been looking for in health care.

Verified Patient


Dr. Cox is knowledgeable, compassionate, and nonjudgmental. Her style of practice removes the typical doctor-patient power hierarchy so that the focus is entirely upon her patients and advancing their health goals together. Highly recommend! 

Verified Patient


The whole team sat in and what a team it was. I felt right at home and even shared some laughs during what should have been a stressful procedure. Couldn’t have asked for a better visit!

Personalized, Comprehensive Medicine







The Principles of Integrative Family Medicine


1 The patient and our care team are partners in the healing and prevention process.

2 Our goal is to help our patients succeed in preventing, treating and reversing disease. Therefore, we partner with each patient to help them live their best lives and to take charge of their health. We recommend both evidence-based western medicine and natural options and neither reject nor accept either conclusively.

3 When prescribing care, we consider all factors that determine your overall health.

4 All of the members of our care team are committed to excellence and lifelong learning and self-development in the pursuit of the care of our patients, our community and our world.

Complete Primary Care for All Stages of Life


We provide the same quality care for all ages. Patients receive $0 medical visits, and children under 18 get discounted rates after two full-paying family members enroll.

In most spiritual practices, the heart center is the key to diving into deeper states of consciousness. The heart-centered meditation (HCM) is different from most meditation practices (mindfulness based, Zen meditations, etc). It uses 4 attributes: compassion, innate harmony, healing presence and unconditional love to connect to the heart space. This meditation also uses the Karunesh Heart Chakra Meditation soundtrack to deepen the practice.  Dr. Cox will be offering this HCM every Thursday between November 4, 2021 to February 3,…
