Specialties

Dr. Andrea Ashby has the following 2 specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

  • General Practice

    A general practitioner is similar to a family practitioner in that they treat patients of all ages with a variety of health concerns. These doctors treat everyday ailments, some acute and chronic diseases, and also provid health checkups, physicals, inoculations and preventative care.
    General practitioners differ from family practitioners because they are not required to complete an additional residency in family medicine after completing their medical school residency. Like family practitioners, general practitioners will also provide referrals to patients who are in need of a specialist.

Terrible, terrible Doc

This doctor was a miserably experience from beginning to end. Avoid this woman if you have any sense of thinking for yourself, or even if you want to discuss treatments options. She wants you to treat her as God, and you are her lowly dominion. She managed to find a mini-version of herself as her front desk person. This young woman spewed out attitude and condescension as artfully as Ashby. Fact is, Western Medicine is a "treatment" model not a healing model. Seems to me that Ashby should just accept this instead of letting arrogance blind her to the fact that she is not a healer. In fact, she was detrimental to my health because she let her personal feelings affect her care for me. Avoid her and preserve some of your life quality.

Terrible, terrible Doc

This woman is rude, she yells at you for questioning anything. She is late (sometimes 45+ minutes late, she wasn't even in the office. When she arrived, she spent five minutes laughing with her secretary about her outfit before coming in to see me). Complete disrespect. She gave me several meds that made me worse, she refused to change my thyroid med from Armour (I was allergic and having major flare ups with my Hashimoto's) to Naturethroid. Finally found a fabulous Endo (which she told me not to go see) that allows me to adjust my meds according to my symptoms. This woman is a piece of work. The kind that can dish it out but not take it. She even screens what patients she will take on. Probably to see if they won't disagree with her. Go elsewhere. You've been warned.

Three generations

Dr. Ashby has treated three generations of our family. Myself, my husband, his mother and our children have all been seen by Dr. Ashby. She takes her time with each patient and focuses on the whole patient. Diet, exercise, family history and medical needs. We strongly recommend Dr. Ashby.

One Star

Doctor had rude and arrogant bedside manner. She was extremely late each time I visited. Unbelievable verbal rudeness and disregard. She ordered tests without my consent and knowledge for services not covered by my insurance, and now I'm stuck with a bill for over a thousand dollars. Even her own staff was perplexed as to why she utilized testing facilities and services they weren't familiar with...very strange, indeed. Now I have to go through the major hassle of fighting the insurance carrier to cover these bills. The doctor could care less and rudely dismissed my questions about my bill.
