Ashley Hayes was born and raised in Rochester, New York. She went to Brockport high school where she graduated in the top ten percent of her class. Due to her outstanding achievements she graduated with a full year of college credits. Ashley continued her education at Spelman College studying biology with a focus on pre-medicine. During her matriculation, she conducted research on the gynecological disorder known as endometriosis through a partnership with Morehouse School of Medicine and Emory University. She graduated from Spelman College in three years and went on to work at a local practice in Atlanta.
While working, she assumed the role of Patient Care Tech and was promoted to Quality Improvement/Risk Management Coordinator due to her dedication to the practice and her patients. Ashley then attended Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Suwanee, Georgia where she obtained her Master of Science in health science to become a physician assistant. After graduating, Ashley worked for a short period in Ear Nose & Throat/Facial Plastic Surgery.
Ashley enjoys practicing medicine and believes in treating every patient like they are family. She never wants a patient to feel like they are just another number waiting in line to be seen. She decided to join Advanced Urology due to urology being a field that is constantly evolving and the practice continues to conduct research that will allow for new and innovate measures to care for patients. The practice also provides a family environment and she appreciates the time each provider invests in their patients.
In her spare time, Ashley enjoys traveling across the world, shopping and working out to maintain a healthy lifestyle. She also enjoys spending time with family and friends, reading, listening to music and trying out new restaurants in Atlanta.
