A Letter From Dr. Ashton

Dear Parents and Kids,

I wish to make you aware that I will be taking an extended medical leave from my practice.  It has been such an honor and privilege over the years to have cared for your remarkable children, and to be associated with such dedicated parents.  The joy and satisfaction that have come my way through this gift will continue to be a part of my life, particularly valued associations.  This is a hard transition for me.

I want you to know, as many of you do already, that very capable and dedicated physicians and staff at Willow Creek Pediatrics are available to care for your family's health care needs.  There is no finer group of medical professionals anywhere who work vigorously in striving to improve the health and well-being of their patients.

I would particularly like to introduce Dr. Ryan Donnelly, who will be taking my place.  Willow Creek is most fortunate to be able to add a pediatrician of such outstanding caliber and credentials to our staff.  As important as his qualifications are, he is, moreover, a very caring and personable individual.  He is in the process of completing his training at Primary Children's Medical Center, where he has been appointed the Chief Resident.  He has received recognition for his service to children, as well as being acknowledged by his peers as the doctor they would most like to take their children to.  He will soon begin part-time work at the Willow Creek office and will begin working full time in June.  He brings a wealth of information and new ideas, as well as an abundance of energy and enthusiasm.  I highly encourage you to take the opportunity to become acquainted with this very capable physician.

Again, I would like to thank you for allowing me to be involved in the care of your family over the years, and wish you happiness and success always.

With warm regard to all,

Dennis Ashton, M.D.

Dr. Ashton,
Thank you so much for your service. You have been wonderful and amazing with all of my children, especially Whitney and her rare disorder! She has been a mystery child and probably will continue you to be, but you were always able to help find a solution for us to help her! Thank you again!
