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.

Dr.Ashton and assistant Andrea performed an ultrasound guided needle biopsy for me August 17. I was quite nervous, but soon was made to feel relaxed and well cared for. It is a painless non-event…..don’t worry.😀

I found the whole experience of needle guided biopsy (as much as could be given my anxiety) to be one of professionalism combined with kindness. Dr. Ashton was thorough and not rushed and Priscilla (technologist) was more than kind and understanding and guided me through the whole procedure as if I were her daughter.

Had a biopsy done this morning. Technologust Priscilla was very thorough on explaining how the procedure will go and the different sounds you will hear. When Dr. Ashton came in everything was in line with what Priscilla has describe. They both have great beside manner when you are nervous and scared. Thank you!!!

I was very pleased with the care I received from both Dr. Klouda and Dr. Ashton. They were both very caring and compassionate and made me very comfortable in a stressful situation. The technologists, Prescilla and Andrea were very kind and efficient.

My technologist was Andrea and I was treated perfectly. It was fast, painless and comfortable. I had an ultrasound guided needle biopsy and the Dr was polite and fast. I would recommend them to everyone. Thank you all!

Had my first mammogram and needed a biopsy as well. Dr. Ashton and his team were great. Calm environment, everything was explained, and completely painless mammogram and biopsy. Test results were even quicker than promised. Will definitely continue seeing him for ongoing care.
