Specialties

Dr. Matthew M Ashby has the following 2 specialties

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Dr. Ashby is a wonderful doctor. His wait for appointments were less than at other offices. He is personable and listens to our needs, and he cares about what is happening with our family.

appointments

i called to make an appointment and was rudely told they don't make appointments over the phone. I was told to go online and fill it out. that might be efficient to the staff at the agency but I found it very off-puting. I will find another psychiatrist.

Doesn't keep appointments

It is really hard to get an appointment he only works part time. You make appointments months out and then they call and cancel. 3 of our last 4 appointment have been canceled.

Not impressed

Physician is too busy to spend adequate amount of time with children he treats. Not available for concerns about side effects and I had to contact pediatrician and pharmacist to inquire about that. Prescribed medication without taking height and weight of child. Condecending to parent when parent had questions and concerns.
