Dr. Ashmead was wonderful! I had been in a great deal of pain; he was able to diagnose my issue on the first visit and fit me with two braces which have made a world of difference in my pain level and in the use of my hand. He and his entire staff were kind and attentive; at no time did I feel rushed. I was encouraged to ask questions and all were answered. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

courteous and professional takes time to explain everything- never rushed good sense of humor clean office- lots of good magazines my surgery was smooth and stress free



Dr Ashmead is a great hand specialist. He helped me tremendously and he has great bedside manner. He always answered any questions I had before and after surgery. I would recommend him to anyone who need hand surgery.



Excellent experience. Dupuytrens contracture; had the Xiaflex option and my fingers are straight for the first time in over ten years. Staff friendly and prompt. Therapist Debbie was extremely helpful and courteous. Dr. Ashmead is one of the most professional MDs I've ever had. Explanations, friendliness, support, and precision in a procedure that could be problematic. I will gladly return if needed for the other hand or for repeat procedure (not a cure; I didn't want surgery). I can't recommend this facility and its staff highly enough.
