      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Ashby's Care Philosophy

      "I studied medicine for two reasons: to help people and for the intellectual challenge.  I believe in treating all patients as if they were family. I learned that philosophy as a third year medical student and it still makes sense to me."
