Family medicine is more convenient than ever! Opening mid-October 2019
Family medicine providers, or primary care providers, are your partners in person-focused (not disease-oriented) healthcare. They deal with a wide range of medical issues, including disease prevention, health maintenance, counseling, patient education, diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic illnesses. They are also trained to coordinate care among different specialists and sub-specialists. Establish a relationship with a family medicine provider by scheduling an annual routine check-up, which is covered by most health insurance plans.
Same-day acute care (sick or injured) appointments are available for established patients only. For your convenience, we also offer early morning acute (sick) appointments beginning at 7:00 a.m.
If you have Medicare, AppFamily Medicine provides Annual Wellness Visits. Call us for more information.
Patients may contact the Practice Manager at (828) 386-2222 with questions, concerns, complaints or compliments regarding AppFamily Medicine.

“I have been seeing Stephanie [Walker, FNP] for about 1 year and she is one the kindest, sweetest, and gentlest nurse practitioners or doctors that I have ever been to. She has helped me through a very rough time.”
We love Dr. McCracken! He’s WONDERFUL: personable, listens, and offers care that makes sense to the personality and preferences of the patient while being medically sound and recommended. You’re in good hands with Dr. McCracken.
