Brandon Ashton, MD, DABR, is a board-certified diagnostic radiologist who specializes in breast imaging at the UT Health East Texas Breast Care Center. “I believe everyone should receive VIP treatment. I care for my patients in the same manner I want my own family members to be treated.”

Dr. Ashton works with his patients to identify and prevent breast cancer. “The most important message I share is that all women with average risk for breast cancer should have yearly screening mammograms beginning at age 40. This strategy saves the most lives, and enables us to find cancers at the earliest and most treatable stage.”

Dr. Ashton earned his bachelor’s degree in zoology from Weber State University in Ogden, Utah, and his doctor of medicine from the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. In addition, he completed his diagnostic radiology residency at the Scott & White Medical Center in Temple and his breast imaging fellowship at the Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee.

His personal interests include water skiing, wakeboarding and basketball.

Featured Reviews



Dr. Ashton and his Technologists Andrea/Priscilla were very highly rated in professionalism in a very calming environment. Their care made me feel confident in my choice of my care.

Dr. Ashton performed an ultrasound guided needle biopsy on me on May 9th with the assistance of Priscilla and Andrea. It's a very stressful time for me as I await the results. I could not be MORE impressed with the three of them, as well as every single staff member I have come into contact with at this facility. I appreciate them all, and would recommend them to everyone needing care. Beverly Briggle

Over the past few years, I've had a few visits with Dr. Ashton. Most recently I saw him and his technologist Priscilla for an ultrasound-guided needle biopsy. What I most appreciate about them both is that while I'm sure they have a heavy patient load, they never seem rushed. Dr. Ashton takes time to prep for his appointment schedule by reviewing patient files, history, and baseline/prior images in advance. Both of them explain things in a way that's simultaneously thorough and accessible and patiently answer any/all questions. I feel like I'm in good hands with the two of them.

Dr. Ashton and Priscilla (technologist) are the consummate professionals that blend their considerably skills with a caring, compassionate approach to making a patient comfortable while performing the procedures with precision and competence.

   — Robert Nelson


From check-in to testing, everyone was friendly, polite and professional. Priscilla explained the procedure in detail before the doctor entered the room. Dr. Ashton carefully told me each step of the procedure, just as Priscilla told me he would do. When a patient is concerned about what the outcome could be, he put me at ease. Pleasant employees in a pleasant environment.
