Q & A with Aneela:
Why Did You Choose Integrative Family Medicine as your medical practice home?
I love the values the practice stands for, which is taking care of patients in a wholesome way.
What should new patients know about your approach to medical care?
I start the visit by asking “what is your health for?” and I allow my patients to guide me.
What do you feel is the most important component of the patient/physician relationship?
Communication – as it is with any relationship.
What do you love the most about practicing medicine?
I love the connections that I build with patients. I love being a part of other’s journeys as they navigate what healing looks like for them.
Who, specifically, is going to love having you as their physician?
People that are curious about their wellness, those that are motivated to learn about their bodies, mind and spirit. Truly anyone who is willing to invest the time and energy to take care of themselves in whatever form that looks like.
My husband and I LOVE Asheville. We did our yoga teacher training at Asheville Yoga Center in 2015 and fell in love with the community and the Blue Ridge Mountains. We always knew that we would end back up in WNC after our residency training to further build the beautiful community we experienced here.
