About East Asheville Family Health Care
Small Town Practice with Big City Medical Services
East Asheville Family Health Care is located at the Swannanoa Valley Medical Center, 997 Old US Hwy 70, Black Mountain, NC 28711. We occupy Suite A and offer you the quiet and personal atmosphere of a “small town” practice, combined with the industry’s latest technology and medical services offered from “big city” mega practices.
East Asheville Family Health Care is known for our dedication and emphasis on helping those with chronic diseases manage these illnesses in their daily life. Our focus on cardiovascular risk detection has been well documented by the Agency of Health Care Quality and Research (AHQR) under the directions of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). We hold this recognition dearly, and take pride in it. Our care of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic lung disease, hyperlipidemia, and cancer prevention will continue and expand. Our ability to care for chronic illness and chronic pain will continue. We will still maintain these principles as we offer a new focus on women and their sexual health and wellness.
New Women’s Health and Wellness Program
Women make up nearly 60% of our clientele, and we want somewhere for them to go to feel cared for and comfortable. Dr. Early is heading up a new program at our Family Health Care Center which focuses on the health and wellness of women in Asheville, and Western North Carolina. We focus on their overall health and wellness, as well as, their sexual well-being with appropriate hormonal therapy. Our staff also supports and treats sexual dysfunction and anxiety in their psychological health. The East Asheville Medical Care team are unwavering in their commitment to independent private practice and personalized quality medical care for you. There are too many physicians focused on male erectile dysfunction. We want to improve the health, wellness, and sexual function of the majority of our patients, the women. Below are some of the new treatments we are offering with more to come:
- Pelvic Weakness
- Vaginal Atrophy
- Overactive Bladder
- Cosmetic Facial & Vaginal Appearance
