For immediate release
Physician Returns to Queen Elizabeth Hospital
“With Dr. Ashby’s consent, we wish to advise the public that he has received treatment for Hepatitis C and has been cured,” says Rick Adams. “We are very pleased to welcome him back to the QEH.”
In the winter of 2007, Dr. Ashby voluntarily withdrew from performing surgical procedures when he tested positive for Hepatitis C in association with a routine physical examination. Since that time, he has received treatment and results from tests confirm he no longer has Hepatitis C.
“This is very good news, not only for Dr. Ashby, but also for the patients and staff of QEH,” said Rick Adams. “Dr. Ashby is a highly skilled and well respected physician and we are fortunate to have him back at the QEH.”
