About Our Office

Our Values

What Makes Us Stand Out?


We are deeply committed to treating every patient in a highly personal manner in a family-like atmosphere.


We accept all forms of insurance, including Medicare and Medicaid. We are in-network with most major commercial plans such as Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, United Healthcare, aetna, Humana, and Cigna. Please call our office or your insurance company if you are unsure of your coverage.


We are currently accepting new patients. While our office doesn’t require a referral for an appointment, your insurance company might. Please check with your insurance company first, or get a referral from your primary care provider.


We offer many minor surgical and diagnostic procedures conveniently in-office. Some may even be offered on the same day as your appointment.


Depending on your condition, we are generally able to offer appointments within one or two weeks, often within a couple days. We see patients for general appointments Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesday mornings, and Fridays.


You’ll find our office cozy, calm and personable. Being a smaller office, we are able to provide personal care for each and every patient.

Holly joined us in 2017 as Dr. Pickens’ medical assistant. She assists Dr. Pickens with all office procedures and patient visits. If you need a medication refill or have a medical question, Holly’s the one to talk to! On weekends you can find Holly four wheeling and volunteering her skills on an ambulance.

Belinda has been with us since 2014. She is an Asheville native, moving back in 2008 after living in southwest Virginia for several years. At Mountain Regional, she checks patients in and determines insurance pre-certification for procedures. When she’s not making patients feel welcome, she enjoys reading, writing and spending time with friends and family.
