Dr. Beth Ashford is THE BEST!!!! She performed both of my daughter's ear tube surgeries. From the moment we walked in the door we were treated with kindness and respect. My 3 year old generally hates doctors and won't let anyone come near her, but Dr. Beth Ashford has such a gentle spirit about her both kids warmed up to her immediately. Their surgery center is just beautiful and so clean - so much easier than a hospital. We love and highly recommend Dr. Beth Ashford at the Ashford Clinic!!!

Dr. Ashford is a very caring MD and a great surgeon with a spectacular surgical team. I am currently having some thyroid issues that would otherwise be scary, but the time was taken to explain to me in great detail the plan and prognosis for my issue. I am beyond grateful for this entire office and staff, there is no one better to meet your ENT needs.

Dr Sarah Ashford was able to open my sinuses & help rid me of the chronic sinusitis & infections I've had for half my life. Kind, caring, listening, & answering questions proved I chose the right Doc. She didn't evade any question I had, & in our discussion of my treatment I realized her expertise, knew I had found the best physician, young, smart, dedicated, with the most current care available. Her staff was awesome as well. Don't waste your time going to any other Physician group. She's TOPS

Dr Beth Ashford & team provided excellent care for me, finding the root cause of my chronic sinusitis & correcting it with FESS, an outpatient surgical procedure. Pain low, only required pain med for the day after surgery. And I can SMELL, and TASTE! They are young, know the latest treatments & meds for their patients, & are the most compassionate clinical people I've encountered since moving to Georgia. I recommend them over anyone else, in any other state as well. Thank God for Doctor Beth!

Dr. Beth Ashford is the most compassionate caring doctor I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I went to her because of an abnormal parathyroid which I had no idea what that was or it's function to my well being. She explained it in length and was in no hurry to let me leave without me being totally comfortable with her diagnosis. She did my surgery to remove one of my parathyroid glands and the experience was one of peace from beginning to end. Totally recommend her!!!

Great personality from doctor and all of staff. Very knowledgeable doctor I was very comfortable from the moment I entered the practice. Clean and light environment. Being a young male ND not going to any doctor much at all especially a specialist, Dr. Ashford and her staff made my visit hassle free and very pleasant. I would recommend her to any and all!

Very impressed with the doctors and staff at the Ashford Clinic. Everyone was very caring and professional. My only request from the doctor was to have a picture of my thyroid sent after it was removed. When I was able to check my phone, the picture had already been sent! I am thankful to each of them for making me feel so comfortable during my time at the clinic.

Dr. Beth Ashford was very informative for the reason of my visit. I felt very comfortable with her and her knowledge of Thyroid/Parathyroid issues. She took time to explain the function of the thyroid and parathyroid and answered any and all questions I had. She immediately began steps to diagnose my problem on my first visit! Their staff is truly amazing. Very polite and it was wonderful for them to even know my names as I walked in the door. I would definitely recommend Ashford Clinic!

She is extremely knowledgeable about her specialities, and she couldn't be more patient friendly and genuine. She projects a throwback to the doctors of old along mixed with a mastery of the latest procedures. He has been a God-send after years of dealing 'supposed' ENT experts that did more harm than good. I could not be happier or more satisfied with her and her talents.

Dr. Sarah Ashford truly cares about her patients and seeks to provide the best care possible. After receiving an unexpected and potentially life changing diagnosis, Dr. Ashford could sense my concern and reworked her schedule in order to biopsy a lesion in my throat within 2 days. Thankfully the lesion turned out to be benign! Dr. Ashford's sense of urgency saved my family from having to worry for weeks. Thanks Dr. Ashford!
