Special Needs

Asheville Medicine and PediatricsNow more than ever it is important to have a true medical home. The medical home, also known as the patient-centered medical home (PCMH), is a team based health care delivery model led by a physician that provides comprehensive and continuous medical care to patients with the goal of obtaining maximized health outcomes. At the pediatrics level, a medical home is an approach to providing comprehensive primary care for children and youth. French Broad Pediatrics will be a home that goes beyond quick triage to another provider.  We pride ourselves on being able to manage many special needs patients from diagnosis to treatment, as well as seamless communication to your other doctors.  More of your child’s care will occur under one roof and nothing will come between you and your child’s health.
