Pediatrics and Family Medicine in Boone, NC

AppFamily Medicine is proud to offer comprehensive primary care for your whole family, while also training the best and brightest young doctors through the MAHEC Rural Family Medicine Residency Program. This program will increase access to care for our rural populations.

Women’s Health & Prenatal Care: Welcome Dr. Beverly Womack, supervisor for the obstetric and gynecologic education for the Mountain Area Health Education Center (MAHEC) Boone Rural Family Medicine Residency Program. She is teaching and supervising the family medicine resident physicians caring for women and children in the high country. While she will no longer deliver babies with her own patients, she will assist the resident doctors in obstetrics and childbirth

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 diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic illnesses, disease prevention, obstetrics and gynecology, health maintenance, counseling, patient education. They are also trained to coordinate care among different specialists and subspecialists. AppFamily Medicine providers can also make home visits and treat their patients while in the hospital.

Pediatrics in Boone: AppFamily accepts new pediatric patients, infant to adolescence, in addition to adults. We want to be your whole family’s medical home here in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Same-Day and Walk-in ClinicsThe Same-Day Clinic and Walk-In Clinic is a convenient option for acute medical issues, such as colds, flu, sore throat, sinus pain, ear pain, allergies, bug bites/stings and minor injuries – things for which you would normally go to Urgent Care. High quality, efficient medical care is available for your whole family.

Monday-Friday: Call to reserve your time for minor illnesses and injuries. Walk-ins are welcome 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm.
Saturday: Walk-ins are welcome 8:00 am – 12:00 noon.

Dr. Brendle is absolutely amazing! So smart and caring! Great bedside manners as well. HIGHLY recommended.

Dr. Brown saw my daughter (6) who has been struggling with adhd and was amazing with her! She’s listened so well and was not for medication right away. She worked with us to find the right thing for our family. I highly recommend!

Dr. McCracken listens. Yes, he actually wants to know how you’re doing…imagine that. If you’re looking for a family physician who will listen, explain your options, and then help you form a treatment plan, you’ll be as happy as I am with Dr. Chris McCracken

Staff was very courteous and knowledgeable. I saw Dr. Cunningham who was excellent! Highly recommend!

I normally avoid the doctor’s office like the plague, but I was happily surprised by my experience with AppFamily. I saw Dr. Fox and would highly recommend. He’s easy to talk to and very thorough.
