How We’re Different
What we do at Vickery Family Medicine
We are independently-owned and operated, and have been proudly serving patients in the Asheville area since 2005!
Our providers at our Yorkshire Street office take scheduled appointments (and often can squeeze in same-day visits) to see you for your annual physical, manage a chronic condition such as diabetes, or establish care for a new patient. Please note that Drs. Vickery and Mayer, as well as Jan O’Hara, WHNP are not accepting new patients at this time.
Our providers also can manage minor mental health concerns, such as insomnia and anxiety. We maintain co-management agreements with all Mission Health Partners’ specialists & behavioral medicine providers. This agreement ensures timely coordination of care between primary and specialty physicians and/or behavioral health providers, such as keeping up-to-date medications, diagnoses, allergies, clinical findings, and current treatments.

Our Direct Care Program
We believe patients should be more actively engaged in their care, and in greater control of their well-being. So we also provide an affordable Direct Care Program for healthcare services. Through this direct-pay model, we do not receive reimbursements from insurance companies, Medicare, or Medicaid. This simpler approach allows us to keep costs down, focus more on necessary care, and spend more and better quality time with each patient.
The results: shorter wait times, un-rushed appointments, quick scheduling, and control over your health care spending. For more information, please call our front desk or visit our direct care partner website at synergyhealthwnc.com.
Our walk-in clinic inside Sona Pharmacy is open seven days a week to all patients, whether you’re new to town, one of our VFM patients or have another provider. As a primary care walk-in clinic, you’ll pay your primary care rate and be seen quickly by one of our providers for sick visits, injury and sudden illness.
Weight loss program
Established patients of Jan O’Hara, WHNP and Gus Vickery, MD can ask their provider team about our weight loss programs. Speak to our front desk to schedule an appointment.
Jan O’Hara is our women’s health nurse practitioner (WHNP). She can perform annual physicals, preventive GYN services such as a Pap smear, counsel patients on hormones, manage birth control and guide patients through our weight loss program. Dr. Kimberly Heiselman can also perform annual physicals and preventive GYN services.
