Meet Ashley Marek

Philosophy of Care

Like most physicians, I got into medicine because I wanted to make a meaningful impact on people’s lives. Surgery can be an overwhelming experience for patients. Even though it is my day-to-day, I try to remember that it can be a once-in-a-lifetime event for many patients. Therefore, it is my goal that that my patients and families feel comfortable and confident with their care. Every day I do my best to provide information, guidance and time for discussion as we work together to find the best care plan for each patient.

Personal Interests

In my free time, I like to travel, cook, attend theater, and spend time with my dog, Clancy.
