My father's primary care physician recommended my father see a gastroenterologist. After much research, I came across Dr. Ashby. All his reviews stated what a caring, thorough, and knowledgeable Dr. he was, and the reviews are 100% true. In this day and age were a Dr. comes in with an Ipad/tablet in hand and barely makes eye contact. Yet alone having them call you after your visit to see how everything is going is literally nonexistent. The moment Dr. Ashby walks in the room he makes eye contact listens to your concerns and explains everything thoroughly. After a ct scan, Dr. Ashby knew my father's symptoms had to do with an enlarged prostate. Even though Dr. Ashby was out of the picture at this point he called me several times to see how my father's care was going. You see my father is a very stubborn man and getting him to agree to medical care is not easy. Dr. Ashby listened to me not just regarding my medical concerns about my father but about my mental well being. My father was in

Where do I begin? There is not enough space to tell you how happy I have been with Dr. Ashby and Lindsey. They are the best of the best, all around. Dr. Ashby is not only knowledgeable, but he is just a great human being, very kind, compassionate, and personable. He always explains everything thoroughly, and completely. I would recommend any and all friends, and family members to seek out Dr. Ashby if they needed a recommendation for a fantastic Gastroenterologist.

I have not been to a doctor in years - or ever that I can remember - that made me feel like a person rather than an insurance number. He actually took time to explain facts re: my issues, asked if I had questions and then patiently answered them in a very professional yet personal way. As important, after two procedures with him, I am fully confident in his knowledge and experience and that I'll be well take care of. He is the best!

Dr. Ashby is very conscientious. He followed up with me via phone and text several times [even after hours] relative to changes in my condition. He is very knowledgeable in his field. Dr. Ashby referred me to a specialist for my specific issue who was also quite knowledgeable. He had contact with that specialist to discuss my case, even on July 4th. I highly recommend Dr. Ashby for his knowledge and his caring.

Dr. Ashby did my first of three colonoscopies 20 years ago. Each procedure has been absolutely painless and my recovery has been quick. Dr. Ashby is friendly, patient, calm, professional, knowledgeable and just puts you at ease. He describes everything in easy to understand language and takes the time to answer any question that you may have. I've trusted him for all of these years and I highly recommend him.

Dr. Ashby considers a patient a real "person", rather than a number. He is thorough, leaves no stone unturned, asks questions to help in solving an issue with kindness and respect, and never fails to follow up with a phone call to speak directly with the patient. It would be a much better medical world if all doctors followed the "Dr. Ashby" protocol of medicine and patient care.

One of the reasons I like Dr Ashby he is careful not over prescribe medication and is always recommending OTC first. His concerns for his patients is obvious at your first visit. This is a Doctor that has called on his vacation.
