I went to Dr Ashmead for a second opinion regarding my upcoming wrist surgery. He was very personable and gave me all the information I needed to make my decision.

I found Mr. Dillon professional, knowledgeable and very good at what he did for me---two shots of cortisone into my thumb's joint. Since he was spot on, in hitting the joints, there was next to no pain for these injections. Glad he is on the younger side, since I am a senior and will probably need his assistance in the future. I would feel very comfortable having him work on me again.
