Ashewell Medical Group

About Us

We are a Unique Primary Care Experience.

Ashewell Medical Group provides direct primary care to Asheville, NC. Our care is timely, thorough, comprehensive, affordable, and very, very personal.

Our providers, Dr. Carly Brown, Dr. Anna Bartow, and Will Powell, FNP, care for 500 patients – that is 6 times less than the national average! That’s six times longer we spend with you and six times better we get to know you.

As an Ashewell patient, same day and highly personalized care is the norm. We email, we talk on the phone, we even text! OMG!



Our office experience.

In 2016, Dr. Carly Brown founded Ashewell at 408 Depot Street, located in the heart of the River Arts District, in Asheville, NC.

Our office is as unique as our practice: highly personalized, conveniently located, and efficient.

Our team is warm, welcoming and highly skilled. Our space is bright, modern and clean. We are heavily invested in caring for our community, and have in the past spearheaded several community fundraisers and projects.

In 2018, after successfully growing Ashewell, Dr. Carly Brown was awarded Asheville Small Business Leader of the Year by the Asheville Chamber of Commerce.

In 2019, Dr. Brown and Ashewell lead a group of DPC practices in an effort to successfully pay off $2 million dollars worth of medical debt for residents of North and South Carolina. Then in 2020, Dr. Carly Brown founded Masks of Love, a grass roots organization, in an effort to bring community sewers together to make and distribute thousands of masks to prevent transmission of COVID 19. Dr. Carly Brown received a Dogwood Award from Attorney General Josh Stein for her work with Masks of Love.
