Our Story

In 1999 Lisa Lichtig, MD and Patrick Hanaway, MD now married for over twenty years, had a vision to create a health care center that addressed the root of illness rather than just treating symptoms. Recognizing people’s longing to feel deeply cared for and heard by their physicians, Family to Family: Your Home for Whole Health Care was born in the historic district of North Asheville.

It is with great fortune that Dr. Susan Bradt  joined Family to Family several years after its inception. During Dr. Susan Bradt’s family medicine residency, she and Dr. Lisa discovered their shared values, goals and approaches in caring for patients. Building upon their mentoring relationship, Dr. Susan joined the practice in 2007.

 

As we grow, we are grateful that we can offer this ‘good medicine’ to a broader population. We never want to do not compromise the level of care and time that we spend with our patients.
