I am a physician who, along with my wife, has been a patient of this practice for the last 2 years. Each of the doctors have sterling reputations in the Asheville medical community, and although I had never worked with them I knew of their excellence. I have never been disappointed and they have seen us expertly through some trying times, including the middle of the night. Non-physician friends who I have referred have had the same experience, so I don't think I'm getting anything special because I am a doctor. Their fee is considerable, but to spare readers a lecture on the current state of medical economics, it is entirely reasonable In order to offer the services they provide. Concierge medicine is a national movement and we are lucky to have it available here. I heartily recommend this practice and each of it's doctors.

I'm almost 50 and had a very long relationship with my first family doctor until he retired. His approach to an illness was pretty much on par with the way that Dr. McNeill manages my health now. It's refreshing to find a doctor that embraces the best technology out there for running his practice as well as serving his patients. Gone are the day long visit for a simple appointment. You can schedule an appointment usually the same day and you're not stuck in a waiting room. I also credit him with saving my life in his approach to what seemed like a simple kidney or bladder infection. His being on top of it resulted in finding a tumor that still resulted in the loss of a kidney but I personally feel it could have been worse if I had been seeing another family doctor.

Dr. McNeill is everything a 21st century physician needs to be: attentive, compassionate, and giving while incorporating the convenience of online scheduling and electronic patient-doctor communications into his practice. No long waits and as much face time with the physician as you need. His staff are knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and professional. If you're used to the old fashioned doctors office, where a 2:00 appointment means getting called back at 3:00 and seen for ten minutes by 4:00, this will be the most welcome change and will show as your health improves.
Tips & Advices
An osteopathic physician practices a comprehensive form of medicine that takes a holistic approach to a person's health. Instead of specializing in one system or set of organs, an osteopathic specialist focuses on the health of the total body. This includes evaluating environmental factors that affect a person's well-being.
Many family doctors deliver babies, especially in rural areas without a nearby OB/GYN. However, most family doctors only deliver for low-risk pregnancies and do not perform cesarean sections.
Family nurse practitioners are highly educated nurses able to provide medical care individually or with the assistance of another professional. Family nurse practitioners obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then take the National Council Licensure Examination to begin working as a registered nurse. Then, they continue their education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing. Following that, they become certified in family practice via the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, allowing them to become certified family nurse practitioners.
Some family doctors provide immunizations while others do not. Typically, doctors who work as part of a large practice are more likely to offer vaccines in-house. Doctors in offices of one to two physicians are more likely to refer patients to a public health department or other immunization provider.
A physician's assistant is a person qualified to perform routine medical services. This individual is professionally licensed and certified, but they may not have the extensive med school education of a doctor.That said, PAs do complete almost three years of postgraduate study and more than 2,000 hours of rotations.
