Dr. Ashmead was wonderful! I had been in a great deal of pain; he was able to diagnose my issue on the first visit and fit me with two braces which have made a world of difference in my pain level and in the use of my hand. He and his entire staff were kind and attentive; at no time did I feel rushed. I was encouraged to ask questions and all were answered. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
