I have seen Dr. Ashmun for 10 years and have always had a great experience. When I first met her I was having horrible cramping with my periods. She reviewed pharmacological methods and non pharmacological methods to help improve cramping (those which I still use today.) She has never blown off my non OB/GYN problems but has always directed me to the correct physician so that I get appropriate care. She delivered my first baby and was absolutely wonderful! I have worked in numerous women’s care units in different hospitals in KY and I have always and will always come to see Dr. Ashmun! I would recommend her to anyone!

Didn’t spend the time with me as a patient when time needed to be spent! Ended up having the be hospitalized after having child! It could have been avoided to have gotten to the point of a possible stroke and life threatening condition if she has LISTENED! Do not go to her if you want someone that actually respects her patients and listens to their concerns without judgment like a good doctor should! Unless you want to be called a “baby” and sent home feeling worse than you did when you got there. I’m lucky to have survived her!

Dr. Julie Ashmun

Dr. Ashmun is a wonderful doctor. She is very kind and caring. She doesn't cut corners and she is very direct which is what I like. She always has her patients health and welfare in mind and she explains the pros and cons to any given situation. You will not find a more compassionate, caring doctor then Dr. Ashmun

incompetent, inconsiderate, multiple wrong diagnoses

I began to see Dr. Ashmun when I was about 17. On the intake forms I marked that I had OCD, anxiety, and depression as well as a strong family history of endometriosis. My periods were becoming increasingly longer and more painful (not to mention the accompanying nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and migraines). I also had a few small bumps on my inner thigh that I was also worried about. She blatantly told me that I had HPV and the bumps were genital warts. I began to have a panic attack and she told me to calm down and that it wasn't a big deal (yeah right). She gave me samples of altabax, told me it would burn them off, gave me a script for a birth control pill and sent me on my way. Every visit I would tell her my periods were getting worse so she told me to take midol. I was going through 6+poise pads per day and missing school every month. My last visit to see her was by far the worst. I've never been treated that way by a doctor. She did a pap, not very gently at all, and without warning stuck her finger in my rectum (I've never had that as part of a pap before). I was clearly uncomfortable and in pain from all of it. I brought up the endometriosis to her again and she told me that I didn't have it, and that I should go see a THERAPIST or a bowel specialist. I left in tears. I switched and started seeing Dr. Tracy Arghavani. On the first visit she agreed to do the laparoscopic procedure to look for endometriosis, and she found that I had a moderate case of it, burned the lesions, and switched birth controls and I haven't ever felt this great! Recently she informed me that I DO NOT HAVE HPV OR ANY TYPE OF WARTS, and that the bumps we're just bumps, no test has ever showed hpv. And the cream that Dr. Ashmun gave me was an antibiotic, and wouldn't do anything to HPV. Lesson of this story, Dr. Ashmun is an inconsiderate and incompetent doctor. No excuses. Even if this only keeps one person away from her it was worth typing all of this.
