I am highly recommending Dr. Ashley Ross as a specialist in prostate cancer. I have complete confidence in his knowledge of this specialty. His demeanor and communication skills are superb. With all of the health problems I have had over the years I can say with assurance that this is one of the few doctors that I am grateful to have come across. A smile comes to my face every time I think of him. With the pressures that now exist on doctors and patients to navigate through the health care system successfully, this doctor comes through with flying colors.
