"Dr. Margaret Coyle has called Asheville, North Carolina her home since October, 2002. At that time, she left the west coast of Florida, where she practiced comprehensive office and hospital care in a Primary Care setting and became a hospitalist working at Mission Hospital. During her tenure at Mission Hospital, Dr. Coyle also served as the Medical Director of Asheville Specialty Hospital from 2008 until 2010. In January, 2015, she earned the appointment of Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine. Teaching residents in training has been an important role during her years at Mission Hospital.
Dr Coyle received her Bachelor of Science from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. She remained at Georgetown for four additional years, receiving her M.D. degree from Georgetown University School of Medicine. From there, her educational pursuits led her to the New England Deaconess Hospital, where she completed three years of resident training in Internal Medicine. Dr. Coyle is board certified in Internal Medicine.
Dr. Coyle is delighted to join Drs. Gardner, Ballantine and Cummings in the Blue Ridge Premier Medicine practice. The opportunity to establish and maintain a collaborative and cohesive relationship with her patients is particularly welcome.
Dr. Coyle also enjoys leisure time and, when possible, likes to golf, hike, listen to music, peruse the arts and travel the world. She shares these extracurricular activities with her partner of eleven years, Bill Dufrane. Her family circle includes three siblings and five nieces, with whom she enjoys close relationships."
"Blue Ridge Premier Medicine is a unique, limited, concierge, internal medicine practice serving Asheville, NC and the surrounding region with personalized health care from physicians dedicated to optimizing your health and wellness.
Each patient has a readily available personal physician who takes a proactive approach to their healthcare, focusing extensive time on early disease detection, risk reduction, diet, fitness and other wellness needs. Concierge medicine is an entirely different approach to medical care today. By limiting the number of patients, your personal physician is able to give you the close, thorough, timely attention you need to maximize your health. The peace of mind that comes with knowing your doctor is readily accessible and has taken the time to thoroughly evaluate your condition is invaluable.
Eliminate the fear of medicine. Let us help you take control of your health, rather than allowing your health to take control of you. We are eager to embrace your vitality, elevate your medical care to a new level, and work on your behalf to make you as healthy as you can be. Through the convenience of around the clock direct access to your personal physician, a comprehensive annual physical exam and full array of diagnostic tests, exceptional continuity care, on-time appointments, and attention to detail, your healthcare experience will be unlike any other you have ever had.
