Ashewell Medical Group

About Us

We are a Unique Primary Care Experience.

Ashewell Medical Group provides exceptional primary care. Our care is timely, thorough, comprehensive, and personal.

Our providers, Dr. Carly Brown, Dr. Anna Bartow, and Dr. Ananda Vieages, care for fewer patients – 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 highlypersonalized 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 led a group of local 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. Most recently, Dr. Brown as focused on bringing accessible, affordable, high quality mental health services to our patients. When she isn’t working, Dr. Brown can be found in at the farmer’s markets with the three kids in tow, cooking, or spending time with her husband Daniel, two mutts, and 2 Maine Coon cats.

Dr. Anna Bartow joined Ashewell in 2019. Dr. Bartow is a highly skilled and respected Internist and pediatrician who has proudly served the community of Asheville for 15 years. Dr. Bartow is known for her detail oriented and thorough approach. She is warm, and extremely funny. Dr. Bartow is devoted to her family and has a rowdy pack of pups who rule the roost.

In 2022, Ananda Vieages, MD, joined Ashewell bringing a wealth of primary care experience to the practice. Dr. Vieages is spirited and focused on bettering the wellness of her patients. She is a skilled provider of holistic care to families. She has two incredible daughters, and when not working is hitting the gym or trails on her mountain bike.

Ashewell is supported by a team of health care heroes including Keri McLeod RN, our skilled and compassionate nurse, Carolyn Cramer, our office manager, Lacey Cramer, our scheduler and medical records librarian extraordinaire, and our medical assistants, Christy Maier and Breanna McCulloch.
