What it means to be a patient at Minnesota Women's Care

From the beginning, we set out to create an environment where every woman could share her health concerns and get the help she needs to live a fulfilling life. Our providers have a commitment to our patients and providing the best care available. Here's what one of our patients said:

“I started with Dr. Ashford through Aspen. I was always more comfortable with the midwives and nurse practitioners (who were female) however when I finally met him, I knew I was in the best of care. He helped me have 2 amazing, beautiful, healthy babies 11 and 9 years ago. When I needed a surgery done a few years back, he took care of me immediately. Even with such a large office. I felt like I was a number one priority.

And the whole staff in general is amazing! Everyone is very kind. Makes you feel at ease. They are all very knowledgeable and detailed. They work together to provide only the very best care. So if you don't see Dr. Ashford. I promise you each individual is just as important and knows exactly how to help you. If they feel it needs further review, they bring in others on their team who they feel are more of an expert on the topic. I moved away from the area however will always still drive to the Maplewood office because I do not trust any other team.♡ I am always thankful for each person here.” –J.S.


We work every day to make sure that you'll have the same experience with your healthcare needs. Welcome to Minnesota Women's Care.
