Patient Experience Reviews

I have been seeing Dr. Ashby for many years for my gyn needs. This was my annual visit. I was asked by her nurse if it would be ok if a resident came in with Dr. Ashby. I was fine with it because that's how residents learn. Her resident went over my history and reported to Dr. Ashby. They both then came into the room. Exam went well. I never feel rushed with Dr. Ashby and she is very interested in me and my questions. I will continue to see her in the future.


Dr Ashby and her staff are the best! Always courteous always professional and always pleasant no matter how busy they are.


Dr. Ashby and I have a very good patient/Doctor relationship. While my annual visit was routine in nature our conversations are always informative and conversational in nature.


Love Dr. Ashby!


Excellent first time visit with this dr.


I had a good visit.


Dr. Ashby was great as well as her assistant in the room, but the surgical schedule teams leave much to by desired. I realize there may be a shortage of nursing staff, but it was my understanding that I needed to schedule my surgery quickly to get an appointment as quickly as possible and it has taken over a week just for someone to call me back with an appt. I am still waiting to hear back from a nurse and getting surgery scheduled. I find that ridiculous.


Dr. Ashby is an excellent physician. Love her caring attitude and delightful personality! So happy I found her.


They are good


Dr. Ashby is a wonderful doctor. She spends time with you rather than running in and out in 5to 10 minutes. She listens.


Dr. Ashby was attentive and thorough. I always feel listened to.


She was very understanding and knowledgeable about my condition.


Pleasant and caring personality


Dr. Ashby Is kind, engaging, informative, and easy to talk to. She is an excellent physician and I hope that I will have the benefits of her expertise for years to come.


Excellent care. Thank you


Good experience.


Dr. Ashby and the entire medical team team that performed my procedure took great care of me from scheduling, 2nd opinion exam, lab work, procedure prep, procedure, recovery, and post-op exam. Everyone provided the most personal experience ***


Dr. Ashby is the reason my son and I survived labor and delivery during a high risk pregnancy. I trust her with my life.


I like Dr. Ashby and her team. She is thorough as well as her team.I would recommend her to those who I think whom will need her help.


The healthcare team was excellent!

Industry Relationships

University Hospitals is committed to transparency in our interactions with industry partners, such as pharmaceutical, biotech, or medical device companies. At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.
