Wondering what it's like to be a patient at Minnesota Women's Care?
Here's what our patients say. They know us best.
After our initial apt I began seeing Torri Washington (CNM) and she was fantastic through every apt. She is professional, nice and knows what she is talking about. Even when I brought my four year old to the appointments, she included him and made him feel like such an important part of becoming a big brother. She helped him measure my belly and find the heart beat with the doppler. He looked forward to going to see Torri and his baby brother. I also saw Dr. Randall for a couple visits and she is easy going and was so encouraging when I told her I was going to try for a VBAC. There was nothing, but positivity and support, even though I only saw her a couple times. During one of our last visits, I shared with Torri my fears of a repeat c-section and Torri not being there to deliver our baby. Well, Torri went above and beyond for our family. She came in and checked on us multiple times and was there to deliver our newest baby boy and even though there was a tense moment during delivery Torri got him out and gave me the L&D experience that I wanted and so much more. The whole staff at MWC is so nice, they get to know you and treat you and your family with such respect and kindness. I have nothing but great things to say about Torri, Donna and the rest of the staff at MWC. If you have any need, I would recommend MWC as your place to go. MWC is the only place I will be going to during future pregnancies.
Being an older woman like me doesn't mean we have to go through life ashamed, hopeless, or even ignorant about our own bodies. Dr. Ashford and staff treat women who have lots of different issues. They restore hope, dignity and make life full of possibilities again for things you may have thought were hopeless. I am so happy I go there for treatment.
Dr. Ashford delivered my soon in 2009 and when I found out he had his own clinic in 2013 I just had to have him as my doctor again for my second child and third child. His team is so amazingly wonderful and very friendly and I love that you can just chit chat about things you have in common with them or everyday life. I have recommended this clinic and Dr. Ashford to all of my family and friends. The facility is beautiful and very clean! Wait time and scheduling was excellent when they first opened and as time went on they became busier as a growing clinic and wait time and scheduling was some times longer and further out which is understandable as a growing clinic, but I called towards the end of Dec. 2017 and couldn't get in to see anyone until the end of Jan 2017 which I just think is too long of a wait to see someone. Overall I wouldn't go anywhere else, but here. I really appreciate what Dr. Ashford has done here for all Women and thank you to his family for sharing him with the world!
I love the option of seeing a midwife throughout pregnancy care and have had wonderful experiences with both Heather and Andrea. I have had more ultrasounds than most pregnant women generally get because of some complications and the ultrasound staff have been amazing too. I love that the tech's can communicate to you what they see and you don't have to wait to be told by the doctor. When I had complications the tech I saw at the ER couldn't tell me anything, not even heartbeat, that was scary (I do understand why she couldn't). When I went back to MN Women's Care the next day the ultrasound tech showed me exactly what she was looking at and what she found. That alone ensures that I will come back to MN Women's Care as long as they offer services. They really make you feel like you matter and that your concerns are real when you have them.
