I just wanted to shoot a quick message and thank you for being so awesome and so approachable...for chatting person to person... for caring about my professional endeavors.

It is so refreshing to find that in a doctor.


I would recommend this group for anyone who doesn't like being rushed through seeing their caregivers. We have been seeing Dr. Bartow for many years, we look on her not only as our doctor, but as our friend also. We would send any of our friends to see her.

    positive review  I’ve been a patient at Ashewell since around the time that they opened. I’ve never felt so heard, seen, comfortable or accepted by any medical staff. I have several medical issues that typically mean I might need a little more attention than the average patient and I’ve only been met with kindness, empathy and compassion. These ladies make my life SO much easier, I often tell my out of state friends that I wish I could send them to Carly! (All of my friends here I refer to these guys, heck- my roommate even sees Carly and LOVES her too!). The experience at Ashewell is so much more than a doctor. Sarah is a smiling face at the door, ready to greet me and ask how my cats are doing. The waiting area is calm and inviting. Very clean, nothing about it says “doctors office”. Kelsea is always bopping around with a smile on that sweet face of hers, ready to make sure you’re doing alright and check in on you and get you ready to see Carly (and make you awesome coffee- just ask!). And Carly... what is there to say about Dr. Brown. She’s encouraging, she takes into account everything you’re doing (diet, exercise, relationships, work- etc.), she genuinely cares about you as a patient and so deeply wants to help people. She and the entire staff takes the time to get to know YOU and that makes such a huge difference when we are trusting professionals with our mental and physical health. These girls are the absolute best and I can’t stress enough how much they make my life easier. Big love to you girlies!! And to everyone looking for a doctors office where you’ll laugh, cry, and make some friends- Ashewell is the spot!

    positive review  Dr. Brown is awesome and the staff are all very kind and caring. If there was a 10 star review they would get it for sure. I've had numerous docs over the years but never have I found one until now that truly listens to your concerns and finds solutions without charging you both arms and legs. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone.

    positive review  I am so very happy to have found Dr Brown and Ashewell Medical Group. The way she talks to you and approaches the health issues is unlike anything I have ever experienced. I am energized and tackling the things to give myself a healthier future... and I owe that to having a doctor that cares. As long as she has an office in Asheville, I will be a patient. The highest of recommendations for this practice.

    5 star review  I wish I could go higher! I cannot explain what an awesome experience I had for my first visit. Dr. Brown and her staff were fantastic they made the visit so much more than a regular doctors visit. They made it all about the patient never once was I rushed everything was thoroughly explained to me. I came away with the most positive feeling. So very thankful I made this move......

    5 star review  I wrote this on my personal Facebook page a couple of weeks ago, and when coming to leave a review here... I decided it would be best to share exactly what I shared with my friends and family! Ashewell Medical Group (and Dr. Brown) have truly changed my LIFE. "I had my first appointment here on Tuesday and I can’t say enough great things about my experience. Forget everything that you dislike about the “normal” Doctors office - because this is nothing like that. Dr. Brown sat down with me (at a TABLE! I didn’t have to sit on the exam bed thing!!!) for an HOUR! I don’t know about y’all, but typically I spend an hour at the waiting room for a Doctor, and then I’m lucky to have 5 minutes with the actual Doctor. She actually sat down with me for a full hour to discuss my physical AND mental health. She was so easy to talk to but also so incredibly knowledgeable. In that one hour, she recognized that my medications haven’t been that well-managed and came up with a new plan to get me feeling like ME again. She filled my medications for LESS than it would be with insurance and set me up to get complete lab work done, which I haven’t had in years. If you feel discouraged with the healthcare system and you’re looking for a Doctor that really cares and an entirely different experience.. maybe tired of the Insurance company acting as your Doctor, which is a major issue for me.. check out Ashewell Medical Group. �"

“Hey, Kelsey! I was *just* about to text you and Dr. Brown. I just wanted to say thank you, as I truly feel like I'm having a restorative experience in seeing y'all, and am slowing chipping away at the hold of a lot of old trauma - on both a personal and professional level, I'm so grateful for this. Thank you for what you do! You are definitely the *best* phlebotomist, FYI! 🙂 “

Dr. Brown is the most compassionate, knowledgable, and all around best doctor I have ever been blessed with. Any time I am feeling the least bit poorly she and her wonderful staff work to present the best treatment plan, even if it means squeezing me in at the end of the day. I highly recommend joining Ashewell Medical Group for the best care in Asheville. Of course the affordable medicines and membership fees are a big plus too! Thank you, Dr. Brown and staff for your amazing work.

This is how healthcare should be. Personal, unhurried, thorough, supportive and effective.

Hands down the best medical care I've ever had in my life.

Dr. Brown is incredible. She's knowledgeable and she cares. Her energy is solar. Kelsey and Sarah round out her team. My 4 kids are my heart and this is where I take them.

From day one until now, with a few visits in between, I’m still in awe at Dr. Brown and her associates’ abilities to make a model like this successful and available to the general population. This is how healthcare should be. Dr. Brown and her staff are wonderful, accepting, down to earth, and most importantly, kind. The prices are unbeatable. I paid NOTHING to have my IUD removed. I was petrified (because I’m a baby) and was met with lighthearted understanding. Dr. Brown was totally transparent about the process which really put my mind at ease. She loves what she does and it is apparent in the way she goes about her practice. Oh, and birth control pills are only $10/month. I LOVE ASHEWELL!

This is the best medical practice ever! So glad I found Dr. Brown and her group.

I do not know if I can say enough nice things about this place. If you want a Dr to listen and spend quality time with you, this is the place for you.

We chose Ashewell Medical Group for daily patient care for my father. I must say they did a great job. They have the most qualified doctors and we are glad we've found them.

Dr. Brown,
Thank you so much for putting forth your best effort and time to guide me during my sickness. I am humbled by your kindred and servant spirit to do all that you can to not only spend the necessary time with me as a patient, but to advise me in such a thorough manner. I have met few Dr’s in my life who actually care about their patients as you do.   Thank you also for creating Ashewell Medical as it has allowed me to get care far beyond my expectations at an affordable price. I am amazed about how much you take into account all facets of the process for me as a patient, including the financial impact.   What you are doing is ever so needed and I applaud what you are doing.

Thank you again.

This is truly what healthcare and wellness should be. Dr. B, Kelsey, and Sarah are simply amazing. Dr. B takes a very practical, well-grounded approach to medicine while remaining open to ongoing developments.
After much research, their direct care model works best for me. They take time to know you and understand their patients’ individual needs. They are super responsive (i don’t know how Dr. B does it!) and absolutely willing to investigate and consult with other providers. In fact, Dr. B is a tremendous advocate coordinating care and seeking answers. The whole-sale labs and medication are a lifesaver.
Dr. B and her team handle patient care with such grace, compassion, openness, and understanding that their care is second to none. I am truly greatful for all they have done and continue to do. I’m super blessed to have them on my health team, and look forward to their growth in welcoming Dr. Bartow!

I really thought that this place was too good to be true. It sounded like exactly what I was looking for. With insurance plans being so expensive, and with health plans being unreliable and unsure, this is the perfect alternative solution! I have never had a medical practice that truly cared and is available when I need them. Dr. Brown is unbelievable! She is knowledgeable and listens to me like no other doctors have before. This is the way of the future. I'm blessed to have gotten in early!

The team is incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful - this was the first time a doctor sat down with me, evaluated my medical history and current issues, came up with a wellness plan that covered everything from prescriptions to diet and nutrition - and fully explained each step of the process so that I had a good understanding of my treatment plan. An incredible experience - and way better than the traditional insurance/ 15 minute appointment with a doctor where you're left with more questions than you came in with.

Super happy with the care I receive from Dr. Brown and her staff. I’ve never felt this comfortable in doctors office, I’m usuallu filled with anxiety and fear. Not here! And they offer tea!! Cut above the rest. I highly recommend 🙂

This practice fully embodies what the medical industry SHOULD be. As a busy business owner, I understand the importance of time. Medicine has always been such a time consuming process and has been uninviting and confusing.. Ashewell Medical Group provides quite the opposite. This is a practice that is truly incredible. Every facet of Dr. Carly Brown's Business should be the industry standard. Both my broth and I have signed up and realized there is no other practice we ever want to visit. There are no words to express how pleased we are with the experience and the amount of savings on prescriptions as well all other medical expenses. This is only scratching the surface of how truly pleased I am to be a patient here with Dr. Brown. Even with medical plans this is a huge saving to everyone! This is the doctors practice of the future with your doctor on hand 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. I am honored and thankful to be a part of this life changing experience. I truly urge all who are interested in acting quickly for she will fill her patient capacity very soon.

Lastly the aesthetic of this office was beautiful contemporary and inspiring.

Every part of the experience was a pleasure.

Ashwell Medical Group is the answer to the healthcare issue in this country...or at least it was for me. I have insurance through my job but the cost and complication of just getting an appointment no less getting more than 3 minutes face time with a Doctor was just too much to deal with and the care was awful.

I met Dr Brown at the Asheville Tailgate Market and learned more about her philosophy of Direct Primary Care that’s patient focused and not health insurance that’s bottom line cost focused.

My first appointment was nothing like I’d experienced before with a Dr’s appointment. From the moment you walk in the front door you’re greeted by an amazingly friendly staff that truly have a care for the patient. My appointment was at 1:00 and I was in an exam room at 12:45. UNHEARD OF! They were not only on time they were EARLY....I thought for sure the apocalypse was happening.

Dr Brown took the time to find out what was going on, how I was feeling, family history....the whole 9 yards. After a thorough exam (at least an hour of time with Dr Brown) and a new prescription, I was on my way home feeling like the $79.00 a month for Dr Brown and the care of Ashwell Medical Group was the best $79.00 I would spend every month. It truly is HEALTHCARE.

I couldn’t be more grateful for having a Doctor that’s available to me without having to go through a call service. The human element makes the difference!

I highly recommend Ashwell Medical Group!!! They are PHENOMENAL!
