“I first met Dr. Ashford when I went into the clinic for what I thought might be a miscarriage. It turned out I had miscarried and Dr. Ashford delivered the news. He is very knowledgable and has a great bedside manner. I instantly felt comfortable with him and my husband liked his as well. Two years later Dr. Ashford delivered my first child via c-section and then 13 months after that he delivered my 2nd child via c-section. With my 1st birth I didn’t know I was going to have a c-section. I was induced and then 30 hours later I had surgery. Dr. Ashford made regular visits to my room and kept me informed of my options and what he thought was best for me and baby. I never doubted his recommendations. He also performed my tubal ligation and he took it very seriously making sure I understood it was permanent and it’s the route I wanted to go. I have referred several friends to Dr. Ashford and the Nurse Practitioners that work along side him and they have all been happy with the referral as well. I highly recommend Dr. Ashford and his clinic.”
