Important Announcement!

For the next week (February 11-19, 2023) and on Fridays for the next few months, we will be working offsite as the office remodel gets underway. While we will not be able to answer the phone, we will be checking messages regularly and will be available to refill medications, answer questions, and schedule virtual visits, so please leave a message on our voicemail so we can return your call. You can also send us messages via your patient portal. We appreciate your patience through this process and are excited for everyone to see our remodeled space when it's complete!

Dry Ridge Family Medicine

Welcome to Dry Ridge Family Medicine, founded in 2009 by local board-certified family medicine physician, Dr. Nicole Ogg.

Our Mission
The goal at Dry Ridge Family Medicine is to provide excellent medical care and customer service to the individuals and families of Weaverville and the surrounding area. Dr. Ogg understands you have a choice in who your doctor is. She hopes to provide you with the best quality medical care and do so in a friendly, home-like environment.

Our Services
We see children and adults age 5 and up, both for sick and well visits. She does routine physical exams, sports exams, gynecological exams and DOT physicals by appointment. She is well trained in skin procedures such as mole removal and laceration repair. Chronic disease management is also a large part of our practice, and we manage patients with conditions such as Diabetes, Hypertension, Arthritis, Asthma/COPD, Congestive Heart Failure, and Obesity. We also welcome acute care visits for ailments such as sore throats, bronchitis, urinary tract infections, and back injuries.

Our Name
Dr. Ogg named the clinic Dry Ridge after the oldest known name of this area (it wasn't officially Weaverville until 1874). The book "Dry Ridge - Some of Its History, Some of Its People" says this:

"Dry Ridge is the oldest known name, given by the Indians to an elevation that rises in the lower Reems Creek Valley extending northward, coming to its highest point on top of Hamburg Mountain."

Our Logo
Why a turtle? The first reason is Dr. Ogg has always liked turtles and is an avid collector. The other reason is because the turtle shell represents a safe-haven and is symbolic for patience, stability, endurance and protection. She hopes that Dry Ridge Family Medicine will be a clinic people will feel comfortable and safe coming to visit.
