Internal medicine helps adults stay healthy and handle any concerns they have. We’ll work with you to prevent diseases, as well as diagnose and treat health concerns when they happen.

UNC Health Blue Ridge provides comprehensive family practice services that can support your entire family, from mature or retired adults to young children and infants.
Preventive care includes routine medication, exams, screenings to prevent and identify potential health issues early. Preventive care helps you avoid health concerns that could impact your quality of life while early detection of any issues helps solve problems before they become more serious, so you stay healthy.
We’re here to help when you notice symptoms. Whether it’s a cold, the flu, or a more serious concern, our team of physicians has extensive experience diagnosing different illnesses and conditions. We’ll help you identify and evaluate your symptoms, diagnosing the problem and developing a care regimen that manages your symptoms and treats the cause of the issue.
Don’t put your or your family’s health at risk from preventable diseases. Whether you need childhood immunizations, a yearly flu shot, or travel vaccinations, we can help. Our Blue Ridge locations provide, so you’re prepared for what comes next.

Minor surgical procedures include biopsies, wart removal, and surgery for hemorrhoids and abscesses, among others. Contact us for more information on the surgeries we can take care of for you. If you need a diagnosis and referral to another surgeon, we can also help you find the best resources for your needs.
Our X-ray services are done on-site at various locations, making it fast and easy for physicians to pinpoint the problem and set you up with the right care program.
You don’t need to go to a separate location to get lab work done. Our team provides on-site lab work for a variety of needs and our technicians will ensure tests are done quickly and efficiently, with as little disruption as possible.
Routine Physicals and Exams
Yearly physicals and checkups help catch health concerns early, before they become more serious. We can handle everything from annual evaluations to specific exams that ensure you’re healthy and ready for activities like joining a sports team.
Food and environmental allergies can be serious health risks, and if you don’t know what you’re allergic to, allergies can disrupt your life on a daily basis. Our offices provide allergy testing that determines what’s causing your symptoms while keeping you in a safe environment. Once you’re diagnosed, we can help you avoid problem foods and recommend treatment or medication for environmental allergies.
