There IS no expert better in his field than Dr Ashton as my GP told me the first time I had cause to see him ! I am always very embarrassed by my level of anxiety but Dr Ashton is always so understanding and never fails to put me at ease ! He takes time to explain everything and is always so patient tolerant and accommodating! I could not recommend him more !

I've seen Dr Ashton twice for different things over the last 10 years or so. He is what I would describe as a quintessential doctor; approachable, communicative, professional and pro-active. On both occasions, he's treated skin conditions promptly and with no discomfort whatsoever. He offered advice on, and was more than happy to discuss, skin related topics and questions not related to my visit. Really happy with the results so far too. A great doctor and a great patient experience, thank you!
