Patrick Hanaway, MD

IFM-AFMCP in Huntington Beach, California.

I am a board-certified family physician with a medical degree from Washington University and residency training at the University of New Mexico. I am a past President of the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine and co-founded Family to Family: Your Home for Whole Family Health with my wife in Asheville, NC. As an initiated Marakame (Shaman) by the Huichol people in the Sierra Madres of central Mexico, I incorporate these healing approaches in my clinical practice.

From 2002-2012, I was the Chief Medical Officer at Genova Diagnostics, followed by the Director of Medical Education for the Institute for Functional Medicine as well as the  Medical Director at the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine.

Teaching around the world on ‘Good Medicine,’ I bring my full presence to teaching clinicians about healing, with an emphasis on therapeutic relationships, connection, community, and wholeness.


We are proud and appreciative for the way that  Dr. Hanaway has brought ‘Good Medicine’  into the world.  He has trained thousands of health providers in functional medicine all over the world so that they can more effectively and compassionately care for others.  He has created sustainable and effective systems to offer functional medicine within conventional health care institutions and is demonstrating through research the value of this type of care.

We are grateful that Dr. Hanaway has  returned to clinical practice at Family to Family and is now accepting new patients

Hear Dr. Hanaway speak  about integrative functional medicine in a candid radio interview with NY Times best selling author of the Hormone Cure,  Dr. Sara Gottfried.  In this interview he shares the relationship between our connection with nature, with food, with our gut microbiome, and with our health. Indeed it is all connected!

Heart a wonderful  teaching on Functional Medicine – Seeing The Whole Person from Dr. Hanaway on the functional forum.
