He isn't a go by the book guy. He figures solutions for each case.

I went in for an acute lung injury and the doctor did not do a physical exam. He seemed to not believe my acute injury complaint but rather pushed me to get a sleep study totally unrelated to any of my complaints. AND he billed my insurance company for a diagnosis of sleep apnea which I had no symptoms of. This doctor needs to listen to his patients complaints better and learn to diagnosis correctly. Maybe return to medical school for more training in bedside manners and how to diagnosis.

I'm a fairly new patient of Dr. Ashlock's. Not only was he extremely thorough overviewing my case history, but at my 1st appt. he was able to direct his questions to exactly the issues as if he'd been my Dr. from the beginning. I've now been with him close to a year and I'm more convinced than ever he was the perfect choice as my health issues present a certain amount of complexity. Additionally, his office staff are always polite and very diligent in their follow up with me.
