Healing is impossible in loneliness; it is the opposite of loneliness. Conviviality is healing. To be healed we must come with all the other creatures to the feast of Creation.
Anne Walch has been honest, effective and steadfast in her treatment of my wife's condition. (I have attended all but one appointment.) After years of wrong diagnoses and continued worsening of her health, my wife begged and cajoled her way onto Anne's very busy schedule.
That was one of the best decisions we've ever made. Treatment has continued for over two years now and my wife is so greatly improved that friends are remarking about the positive change. I highly recommend Anne Walch!! We need thousands more like her.
Anne Walch is a life saver and I don't say that lightly. Unlike the dismissive attitude I previously received elsewhere, Ms. Walch offered a degree of insight and compassion lost to many healthcare providers these days.
She really listened to what I had to say about my symptoms, asked pertinent questions and ordered test that led to an effective treatment plan. When I look back to how sick I was, I'm amazed at the health I am currently enjoying. I am eternally grateful for her care, guidance and generous support!
I moved to Asheville from Atlanta in 2001 and had a fantastic relationship with my primary care doc in Atlanta, being treated for hypothyroidism and using Armour Thyroid. After having a difficult time getting anyone to prescribe Armour here in Asheville, I began to ask people who they saw. Anne Walch's name kept coming up. When I finally collapsed from fatigue and joint pain, diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, I made an appointment to see Anne, who performed a very extensive assessment. Within weeks, Anne had me back to my old energy level and on the mend, with care, compassion and a few supplements (and a thyroid prescription for Armour). I am, forever grateful to Anne and see her, to this day, on a regular basis! You will love her warmth and calm precision.Wendy H. - Fletcher, NC
I have been a "very" satisfied patient of Anne Walch for nearly ten years! When I first went to her, my hormones were very imbalanced and my thyroid was really off to the point where I was fatigued all the time. I was losing my hair and crying all the time and I had no sex drive whatsoever. After seeing Anne and having a workup done on my hormones and thyroid, Anne was able to prescribe the correct strength of Bio-identical hormones and thyroid that I needed. My hair came back, my nails grew, I was no longer fatigued all the time, the feeling of wanting to cry stopped, I slept better and my sex drive was back to normal and I felt like myself again.I found that Anne was always ready to listen to what I had to say, unlike most doctors that I've had in the past, she cared enough to listen and she heard me. I find her to be one of the "most" compassionate and loving human beings that I have ever met. I've sent numerous friends to her that had many of the same issues that I was plagued with prior to seeing her. They are all "very happy" with the help that she has given them. I became a patient of Anne's while she was still at Asheville Integrative Medicine and I will follow her into her new office which she will be opening soon. I will continue to refer my friends to her forever because she is the best physician that I have ever had!!! Several of them come from other states and stay with me throughout the year just to see Anne. They too love her so much that they make long distance trips to remain a patient of hers. I think this really says what she is all about. She is about helping people! I believe that you too will find her to be knowledgeable, warm, kind and compassionate. I recommend her to everyone.Lauria B. - Black Mountain, NC
I have been a patient of Anne's for 2 1/2 years. She is the most thorough, compassionate and competent practitioner I have ever seen. I traveled from PA the first year to see her in Asheville and when I made my FL home my permanent residence, I traveled from there. She is worth every mile and hour it takes to get to NC.I went in with hormone imbalance, and not so great lipid panels. As well as overall fatigue. She worked with me on my thyroid, suggested supplements I have never heard of and put me back on bio-identical hormones. I feel like a new woman thanks to Anne. I am currently spending 5-6 months a year in Idaho, but I will continue to see Anne when I am back in my FL home. I had a problem in March and she immediately sent me for tests. I am deaf so phone calls are difficult and she takes the time to email me my results and discuss a treatment program.I love her and will continue with her in the new practice. She is caring and compassionate. I have no qualms recommending her to anyone. There should be more like her in the medical field. She is always on the cutting edge of new ideas and medications. I am a very, very satisfied patient.Marlene K. - Palm Coast, FL
For two years I suffered with an illness that I could not find help in diagnosing or treating. I saw eight different doctors and specialist and no one seemed to be able to diagnose or prescribe treatment. In March of 2011, I was recommended to Anne Walch and everything changed. She was knowledgeable, caring, and sincere. Above all she was able to help treat my illness. She has been instrumental in my recovery. Her treatment plans have been well organized, honest, and assuring. I have found that she listens to my concerns and issues and is responsive with her treatment. She always takes the time to fully explain her treatment plans and ensures that I understand by encouraging and being open to my questions. I have found her experience, honesty and confidence in treating my illness to be invaluable.I recommend Anne Walch to anyone who wants a personable and experienced doctor. I believe all doctors should strive to treat their patients as well as Anne Walch has treated me.Bryan T. - Asheville, NC
