Jackson Urological Associates hired Ashley Brown as a physician assistant to specialize in women’s urology. She is the only female medical provider at the clinic.
“Before I was hired, Jackson Urological was comprised of six male physicians,” Brown said. “I believe this provided a very unique opportunity and need for a female practitioner. Many women prefer seeing a woman practitioner, and now they have that choice here in our clinic.”
Besides treating women, Brown also practices acute care and assists in robotic prostatectomy – a minimally invasive procedure for patients with prostate cancer. Brown said the clinic is a wonderful place to work with a collaborative atmosphere.
“I’ve been really supported by all the doctors and feel like they’ve always been available to me if I have any questions or concerns,” Brown said. “It’s rewarding to do something that has been a goal for a while.”
Brown earned a master’s degree in physician assistant studies from Bethel University in McKenzie,. She has a bachelor’s degree from Oklahoma State University.
Before joining Jackson Urological, Brown accumulated more than 1,800 hours of clinical rotation experience in Jackson at Cardiothoracic Surgery Center, North Jackson Family Clinic, Northside Medical Clinic, The Jackson Clinic, Pathways Behavioral Health Services and Jackson-Madison County General Hospital.
