"New River Family Wellness is part of a movement to revitalize healthcare in America. We strive to provide exceptional primary care at a more affordable price to the people of Ashe County and the High Country, regardless of whether they have health insurance. We do this with an innovative, membership-based model called Direct Primary Care (DPC) that gives our patients efficient, near-immediate access to their doctors, fairly priced medications and labs, and a breadth of in-office treatments and procedures. We seek to eliminate barriers to the doctor-patient relationship, promote community engagement, and deliver compassionate care that sets us apart from any other healthcare experience our patients have ever had."
