Marion Wellness & Disease Management, PLLC welcomes certified family nurse practitioner LeAnne Roberts, FNP-C as a new family practice provider. LeAnne will be transitioning from her previous role of registered nurse to one of the primary care providers at Marion Wellness on October 1st, 2020. 


Marion Wellness is a primary care clinic located within an estate that is surrounded by nature in the North Cove area of Marion at 59 Gypsy Mountain Rd., Marion, NC. This independent practice is owned and operated by Kathleen Smothers, ANP-BC, lovingly known as “the blueberry lady” to many locals.


Serving patients, seven years old and older, in the Woodlawn and surrounding communities is what LeAnne is looking forward to most. Her desire is to extend the care the office already provides to include the entire family. “For years we have provided primary care to adults in McDowell and neighboring counties, and now I am excited to further our reach and be available for younger patients as well” says LeAnne.  


LeAnne received her master’s in nursing with an advanced practice track of family nurse practitioner through Purdue University Global and is nationally certified through the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners Certification Board. She has been in primary care with Marion Wellness since 2014 and has a background in labor & delivery. She has a holistic approach to care, recognizing the connectedness of the person’s body, mind and spirit. 


LeAnne and her husband Michael are active members of this community. They have seven children between them and attend Grace Community Church in Marion. Their family enjoys hiking, camping, mountain biking and traveling. With her youngest in middle school and oldest graduating from college a few years ago, LeAnne understands the needs of families in McDowell County.

They are wonderful people who take care of you. I thank God for the care I receive when I'm here. God bless each and every one of them.

We now offer TeleHealth

We now offer TeleHealth visits. If you are sheltering in place, staying at home, or just maintaining social distance, you can still see and speak with us. We have worked diligently to provide our patients with this valuable service. You can visit us via a video chat through your cell phone or computer. Or if you want, you can just have a phone consultation. Our staff is ready to help get you connected. As always, call 9-1-1 if you are experiencing a medical emergency.

Call our office at 828-652-8196 to schedule a TeleHealth visit or explore appointment options!

As of March 16, 2020, in an abundance of caution and in response to current worldwide COVID-19 concerns, our operations have been modified. If you are coming to our offices, please note:

1) We ask that patients call ahead if experiencing respiratory symptoms and a fever so we can appropriately screen. 
2) We are working to limit the number of people in our waiting room by allowing patients to leave a mobile number so they can wait in their car after checking in and be called when it is time to check in to a room. 
3) We will continue to adapt our operations to help minimize the chance of patients coming in contact with each other while still providing the care patients require.
