Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ashford "People deserve compassionate and personalized medical care, particularly when it comes to ear, nose, sinus, and throat issues.  People need to understand what is causing their underlying symptoms or problems, what the options of treatment are, and what alternatives they may have.  I strive to achieve these goals during a clinic visit, to help find what the best solution is for each individual person who comes to see me."

Dr Ashford and his entire staff were so professional and went out of their way to make my mother feel at ease during her visit. We are so fortunate to have both Dr Ashford’s who we can count on for our continuing treatment for my mom!
in Stephens Ga |
Easy to find, super friendly staff from the front desk to the back office. I would also like to share I didn’t have a long wait! I would recommend them to anyone in need of an ENT specialist.
in Athens |
He was the best ENT I have ever gone to!!! His plan is to fix the problems at the root first, then fix the problems I am having that led me to him. Great bedside manner, explains things in lay terms, and has this awesome system where you can look inside you ear and see what they are seeing! Very cool! His PA and one of the nurses, Kelly, and Lynn who handles insurance and scheduling, the front desk, everyone is so nice, smiling and friendly!!

I found Dr. Ashford to be polite and knowledgeable. From the beginning he was interested in my concerns and what outcome I was looking for. He correctly diagnosed and prescribed treatment for my problem during my first appointment. I highly recommend Dr. Ashford.

My visit was with Dr. Elizabeth Ashford. She and her staff were totally awesome!! I had visited another ENT doctor and the service was not pleasing. I would highly recommend Dr. Ashford if you’re looking for an ENT doctor. She and her staff are very friendly. She went into great detail about my issues. She also made sure that I was completely satisfied with all questions answered. She even stated I could contact her after hours if I was having issues. They are a 5 star clinic!!!

Dr. Beth has an excellent demeanor and is very knowledgeable about the ear, nose, and throat. Within moments of her speaking with me I was highly confidential in her ability to assist me with my lifelong sinus problems. Her nursing staff was also extremely courteous and very knowledgeable compared to other doctors offices I have visited. This was my first visit and I felt very well accommodated and actually did not feel like it was a waste of time and money (typical of young males being forced t

Dr. Ashford is amazing! He is very knowledgeable and sweet. He spent a lot of time with me answering questions and giving me a lot of options for treatment. He gave me time to ask questions and I didn't feel rushed while he was in the room with me. His nurse Angie is just a doll. She was super sweet. Brooke and Erin are also very sweet they do check in and out. I'm actually excited about surgery knowing that Dr. Ashford is going to "fix" me in the 4 areas I need surgery on. I know that sounds cr

Dr. Ashford is extremely capable and accessible. I had some unusual side effects with my treatment for a sinus infection and he was available on the weekend to help me and he went above and beyond in his treatment. He was very thorough and straightforward. I can't say enough positive things about his knowledge and helpfulness! His entire staff are friendly and professional.
in Athens, GA |
Just overall a good visit. impressed with the kindness and knowledge at the office.
in Watkinsville,ga |
I've had a rough time with my sinuses but no matter my issues I can always count on the staff at Ashford Clinic to help me get better.
in Milledgeville,Ga |
I have have cronic headaches for almost two years. I have been to several doctors and none seemed to be concerned. Dr.ashford has helped by performing two different surgeries. So far so good since the last surgery a week ago. He tried to understand the problem and get the problem fixed. I will never go to another ENT for serious issues. I would rexominmend Dr Ashford to anyone.he even called me at 7 one night yo to check on a test he did on me see how I was doing and decide on further treatment.
in Bowman, GA |
He is truly a listening, caring doctor. He diagnosed and is curing the cough I have had for over a year. He also has preformed a tonsillectomy for my baby boy and is working with me on sleep apnea. I honestly will never look for another ENT unless God moves me too far from Athens. That is the best clinic!! They have the most courteous staff, and they have been patience with me and my children!!! I can't say enough about them.
Winder, GA |
Dr. Ashford is an absolute miracle worker. We came to him with two separate mysterious ailments, and he diagnosed and fixed both issues. He also listens.
in Athens, GA |
I saw Dr. S. Ashford and she was great! I didn't feel rushed and she also gave me techniques to use in between my visits. I had a minor procedure done and I felt great afterwards!! The friendly staff is also an added bonus. Best ENT in Athens!
in Athens, GA |
His awesome demeanor and quick response most likely saved me from surgery and some hearing loss. This young Dr. is very bright and very compassionate. I don't usually post reviews but this guy deserves an exception! Outstanding!
in Athens, GA |
I've been incredibly impressed with both Dr. Ashford and his practice. I had an extremely severe sinus infection, and he saw me frequently and made sure the office staff would fit me in as needed until I was recovered. I never have to sign in because the staff remembered me after me first visit. I've never had to wait in the waiting room longer than 5-10 minutes, which is unlike any other specialist practice I've ever visited. Everyone is helpful from the office staff to nurses to Dr. Ashford.
in Athens, ga |
Very attentive to my problems with my ears. He was the first doctor to try and understand what was happening. I was very happy with my entire experience. I transferred from ENT of Athens.
