Performed an umbilical surgery on my 62 year old wife at St. David's North Austin Medical Center. Surgery was on December 5th. Sent us home on the 6th. Back to his office on the 8th because her incision was pouring fluid. Stayed there for nearly 10 days. Took the first half of the stay to stop the draining. Spent the second half trying to get her blood pressure up above 100. Only got it up to about 98 after about 3 or 4 days. Sent us back home with no explanation as to what he was doing, or why. On Christmas Day, I had to call an ambulance to rush her to the hospital because I couldn't get a blood pressure and she was completely lethargic. When we got to Cedar Park Regional Medical Center, they immediately called in the urgent care doctor from the ICU. They put her on a ventilator, and just before they did, we said we loved each other. She went straight to ICU where she stayed until February 1st.....when she passed away. While sitting in ICU one night, as I did for the entire time, I decided to google what I kept hearing the doctors talk about....Sepsis and surgery. It said, that sepsis usually starts in the incision, usually because something was nicked. The signs? Heavy drainage from the incision AND inability to keep the blood pressure up. HE KNEW before we left his hospital, that she had sepsis....never tried to explain it....and SENT HER HOME! If you use him, good luck. I lost the love of my life after 40 years of marriage. (Oh and one of the doctors at Cedar Park, said he should have just told us that she wasn't a good candidate for surgery)

Very down to earth, caring, compassionate doctor. Spends as much time as you need and is willing to explain anything that you might not fully understand. Seemed to be short staffed and mistakes were made in the billing which weren't discovered until months later; however, they were in the process of a merge.

Dr. Ashworth has been an excellent doctor and surgeon on every visit. He has been knowledgeable and helpful when answering my questions, very punctual (I have never had to wait past my appointment time), and is friendly to boot.

Dr. Ashworth has been a wonderful doctor througout pre-op and post-op. He did a total thyroidectomy in May 2009 to (hopefully) get rid of my thyroid cancer. I have had no problems so far and no problems with my incision site at all. He is very personable and makes the "jargon" easy to understand. He talked to us pre-op, contacted my wife during surgery for an update, and visited right after I got into my room. He is a general surgeon, but I feel he would give the same attention and time to anyone regardless of their operation. His office staff has also been on top of things, calling us exactly when they said they were going to be contacting us.

Dr. A is amazing. He just performed my cholecystectomy (gall bladder removal) and was willing to spend all the time we needed explaining the procedure to me and every office visit he remembered details about me without having to consult a nurse or chart. He was also very accomadating at getting the surgery done before my wedding with ample time to heal. He also knew I would be really into having pictures of the laproscopic procedure (I just think that kind of thing is cool) and made me copies before I even woke up! He knows his patients and his medicine. I'd let him cut me up again, but I hope I don't have to!

I had an umbilical hernia and the entire experience with Dr Ashworth and his office was exceptional. The initial consult was thorough and he was more than willing to spend as much time with me as necessary. When I finally was ready to schedule the surgery, he was very flexible and worked with me to get it completed before the end of the year for insurance purposes. Great doctor and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
