Due to the economic downturn, Asheville Integrative Medicine will be closing the clinic effective December 22, 2020. If you are an existing patient, please check your email for an official letter from Dr. Biddle. *More information can be found further down on this page.
Here is an official letter from Dr. Biddle: Dear Clients of Asheville Integrative Medicine, After 23 ½ years in this practice, it is with a heavy heart that I announce that AIM must close its doors by the end of 2020, due to financial hardships associated with the economic downturn. Over the last 2 weeks, I have already felt some of the grief, shock, fear, and concern that our clients have expressed upon learning of our closure personally. I understand that losing your physician and health-care support here at AIM may be deeply troubling for many of you. I share in your grief. I also share in the grief of our staff, who not only face an uncertain job market in troubled times, but also the loss of their workplace family. Our staff here at AIM has been truly dedicated to improving your health; they express their gratitude for being able to contribute to that with a sense of integrity and loving teamwork. I feel proud to have provided a supportive workplace of comradery. I feel deeply saddened that we cannot continue. Lastly, I am grateful and honored that each of you entrusted us to be your partners in your quest for better health. I am elated for each step of success that we have shared, and regretful for any missed opportunities or missteps. I’ve often stated, “The hardest part about being a doctor is being human.” Sometime next Spring, I do plan to open a new consulting-only ‘micro-practice’ under a different business name, with just me and a laptop computer. Alas, I will finally give up my old paper charts and convert to an EMR, and most of our encounters will be by phone or video. Please keep an eye out for an email with more details in early 2021. ********* **If you are a current patient with AIM, please check your email for details from Jayne, the office manager, about how to access your records. PLEASE CHECK YOUR SPAM FOLDERS. Our staff has been reduced so we are not always able to return calls in a timely manner. EVERYTHING YOU NEED to access your records or BOOK A FINAL APPOINTMENT is in the email that went out to all current and annual patients. Thank you.
