Physician Bio

Dr. Ashley Fry

Dr. Fry on her motivation to work with cancer patients:

“I grew up in a family of medical professionals and wanted to be a physician from an early age. I have always been a “people person” and was drawn to medicine because this is a field where you communicate with people from various backgrounds and cultures. I went to medical school with an open mind, uncertain which specialty suited me best. While I was in school, my grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer. I remember the way she and my grandfather talked about her oncologist with such appreciation and admiration. I knew I wanted to impact the lives of my patients in such a way. Cancer affects so many people whether you are the one battling this disease or supporting a loved one through treatment. It is a privilege to care for my patients, and I do my best to provide a high standard of care in their time of need.”
