Dr Ashcroft did a awesome job on my cancer. I lost some ‘parts’ but it had to be done. I didn’t think I would make it but I’m not a quitter. I enjoy my visits with him. I would go back to him for any cancer concerns. Thank you Dr Ashcraft

After six years of increasing depression over my medical issues, Dr. Ashcraft turned my life around. He is kind and compassionate-the best of the best! Both he and his great staff is unhurried but most of all caring. He helped me find a way!

Dr. Ashcraft is my lifesaver and I'm so happy he didn't turn away or give up on me like the other doctors did. He was polite, listened to my concerns, and never gave up! Saved my life, took away the excruciating pain I was in for almost 5 years and I'm forever grateful!!!
