Elise R. Coulson, M.D.

  • NPI Number:

Dr. Elise Coulson graduated magna cum laude from Ohio Wesleyan University and then obtained a doctorate in physical therapy from Emory University. She worked for five years as a physical therapist in Atlanta, GA before attending medical school at Morehouse School of Medicine where she was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society. After completing residency at Harvard’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Internal Medicine she went on to pursue subspecialty training in Allergy and Clinical Immunology at the University of Michigan. She has given regional and national presentations and published allergy related articles on a variety of topics.

Dr. Coulson moved to Asheville to be closer to family and enjoy the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Before becoming an allergist her experience as a physical therapist honed her ability to treat patients, from a person and family centered perspective. She has a passion for treating both children and adults with environmental, food, and stinging insect allergies, as well as asthma and eczema. After seeing the tremendous toll that allergies and asthma have on the everyday lives of her patients, it is extremely rewarding for her to be able to provide relief from these chronic conditions.

Outside of work Dr. Coulson enjoys crafting, hiking, horseback riding, and most especially family time with her husband and two young sons.
