    Your health needs change as you age, and working with a compassionate team of medical professionals who consider your overall wellness can help you maintain your health through the years.

  • Hospice And Palliative Care

    Many people associate palliative care and hospice with cancer, however, anyone with a serious illness can benefit from palliative care and use hospice services for end-of-life care.

  • Nutritional Consultation

    Nutrition is critical to your health and wellness. The food you eat fuels your body, providing the energy needed for every function from cell repair to running upstairs, but many people rely on unhealthy, processed convenience foods that are devoid of nutritional value.

  • Advance Care Planning

    You can plan for your future at any point during your life to ensure that your personal values and wishes are understood and documented in the case that you’re unable to speak for yourself due to a medical crisis.

Mountain Medical Arts PLLC

Mountain Medical Arts was started in the mountains of Western North Carolina by Kelly Rothe, DO in 2003 with the help of a National Health Service Corp Loan Repayment Program. She was joined by her husband Jeff Polgar, MD after he completed his NHSC obligation at Blue Ridge Medical Center. Since then they have grown and changed this family-based practice according to the needs of Yancey County, their community and home. Both doctors are board-certified in Family Practice, and in Hospice and Palliative Medicine. Dr Rothe also passed the Integrative Medicine Boards. Both keep up with the latest research in standard practices and novel approaches to health, wellness and dis-ease. 

They were joined by Jonathan Polgar PA-C in September 2018, Dr Polgar’s brother, who shares their practice acumen and style. 

Marilyn Robinson remains their vital office manager. Savannah Baker CMA, Lisa Flynn RN and Lisa Banks MA expertly navigate many roles including nursing, medical assistant, front office, phlebotomy, phones, scheduling, prior authorizations and more, with grace and competence. We all value listening and create a team approach to optimal health for our patients.
