I would not recommend. I have not been able to smell or taste food one year out after my tonsillectomy. I tried to explain this to the Dr several times and was referred for swallowing therapy. Everything I eat taste like cardboard and the back of my throat feels like it is burned severally. I have been told that my condition is irreversible.

I called the Ashford Clinic on August 5th and was given an appointment for August 7th. Check in was easy and my appointment started on time. The nurse that I saw was very attentive, listening to my symptoms and explaining the steps that would take place. The PA spent considerable time with me listening to my concerns and answering all my questions. The procedures performed in the office were handled promptly and explained thoroughly. All aspects of my visit were exceptional. The TIME each person spent with me was pleasantly surprising. This was my first visit to the Ashford Clinic, having been a patient of another ENT that could not see me for 6 weeks. My experience was remarkable; the facilities were top-notch, the staff was welcoming and attentive, and the time spent during my testing and preliminary diagnosis was far greater than expected. I highly recommend this practice.

My daughter ( 12 months old) and I both had procedures done at the Ashford Clinic. The nursing staff were awesome, especially with my little one. After she was finished with her surgery, my wife and I walked into her room to see Heidi snuggling and feeding her a bottle while getting some other things situated for us. They were professional and personable and made me feel very comfortable and confident.

Dr Ashford and his staff were very professional. Friendly receptionist, the nurse that took me back was nice and his PA was nice and very informative. I will differently recommend him and looking forward to coming back and find out why I am coughing (coughly for 4 years). He wants to get to the root of my problem and not just prescribe medication.

Stop the searching! This is the practice to go to. We have been to countless doctors, only to ultimately leave disappointed. Dr. Ashford assessed my son's condition and took a very cautious approach, which in turn successfully solved the problem without complication. The office staff is AMAZING! They are all incredibly professional and I can honestly say this is the most efficient office I've ever encountered. They have it together - which is a godsend for this mom of 5. THANK YOU!
