Wondering what it's like to be a patient at Minnesota Women's Care?

Here's what our patients say. They know us best.


We had just recently moved back to Minnesota in May of 2018, because we were expecting our second little boy and our realator is actually the one who recommended MWC to me. Our first birth was a little traumatic for our family and he ended up in a c-section. So, when I got to MWC and initially met with Rachel Gates (CNM), there was a lot of reassurance, encouragement and support through that appointment. Being a type 1 diabetic, I wasn't sure that they would want to take on a high risk pregnancy, but instead they were more than supportive and ready for the road ahead.

After our initial apt I began seeing Torri Washington (CNM) and she was fantastic through every apt. She is professional, nice and knows what she is talking about. Even when I brought my four year old to the appointments, she included him and made him feel like such an important part of becoming a big brother. She helped him measure my belly and find the heart beat with the doppler. He looked forward to going to see Torri and his baby brother. I also saw Dr. Randall for a couple visits and she is easy going and was so encouraging when I told her I was going to try for a VBAC. There was nothing, but positivity and support, even though I only saw her a couple times. During one of our last visits, I shared with Torri my fears of a repeat c-section and Torri not being there to deliver our baby. Well, Torri went above and beyond for our family. She came in and checked on us multiple times and was there to deliver our newest baby boy and even though there was a tense moment during delivery Torri got him out and gave me the L&D experience that I wanted and so much more. The whole staff at MWC is so nice, they get to know you and treat you and your family with such respect and kindness. I have nothing but great things to say about Torri, Donna and the rest of the staff at MWC. If you have any need, I would recommend MWC as your place to go. MWC is the only place I will be going to during future pregnancies.

Dr. Waschbusch is the absolute best! I don't think I have ever had a physician listen as well and be as empathetic to my concerns. She has the best bedside manner and her focus is really on you as a whole person and how she can help you. I would recommend her to anyone at any stage of life, she is truly wonderful!

Dr. Laure Waschbusch has been my gynecologist for over 15 years. She is simply the best! She listens, takes time to answer every question, and addresses any concerns. I always feel informed and educated when I leave. She is also very pleasant and easy to be with. Talking with her is like talking with a good friend.

Dr. Ashford and staff are absolutely top-notch. He treated several conditions I had with excellent results and corrected some mistakes other physicians had made. I didn't have to to go Mayo although I had thought about it. I found exactly what I needed at MN Women's Care. No matter what your condition, don't hesitate. Make the call for an appointment. You won't be disappointed.

Being an older woman like me doesn't mean we have to go through life ashamed, hopeless, or even ignorant about our own bodies. Dr. Ashford and staff treat women who have lots of different issues. They restore hope, dignity and make life full of possibilities again for things you may have thought were hopeless. I am so happy I go there for treatment.

I love going to the MN Women's Care clinic and Dr. Ashford is the best of the best that there is! He is very caring, knowledgeable and very passionate about what he does.

Dr. Ashford delivered my soon in 2009 and when I found out he had his own clinic in 2013 I just had to have him as my doctor again for my second child and third child. His team is so amazingly wonderful and very friendly and I love that you can just chit chat about things you have in common with them or everyday life. I have recommended this clinic and Dr. Ashford to all of my family and friends. The facility is beautiful and very clean! Wait time and scheduling was excellent when they first opened and as time went on they became busier as a growing clinic and wait time and scheduling was some times longer and further out which is understandable as a growing clinic, but I called towards the end of Dec. 2017 and couldn't get in to see anyone until the end of Jan 2017 which I just think is too long of a wait to see someone. Overall I wouldn't go anywhere else, but here. I really appreciate what Dr. Ashford has done here for all Women and thank you to his family for sharing him with the world!

I have been going to Minnesota Women's Care for a couple years now. I first went when there was only one MD and a couple of midwives. It has been exciting to see how it has grown. I started going to MN Women's Care for basic annual care and have stuck with them through my first pregnancy. The care they they provide is top notch.

I love the option of seeing a midwife throughout pregnancy care and have had wonderful experiences with both Heather and Andrea. I have had more ultrasounds than most pregnant women generally get because of some complications and the ultrasound staff have been amazing too. I love that the tech's can communicate to you what they see and you don't have to wait to be told by the doctor. When I had complications the tech I saw at the ER couldn't tell me anything, not even heartbeat, that was scary (I do understand why she couldn't). When I went back to MN Women's Care the next day the ultrasound tech showed me exactly what she was looking at and what she found. That alone ensures that I will come back to MN Women's Care as long as they offer services. They really make you feel like you matter and that your concerns are real when you have them.

I really like my provider Dr Ashford and his partners. The front desk staff always greets you with a smile and a warm welcome the facility is always clean and location is assessable if taking a bus. Scheduling and wait times are good if can't get in with primary you are always offered to see someone else. My treatment has always been excellent and geared to benefits my needs at the time. With that being said I need to call to schedule an appointment. Thank you.

What's not to love about Doctor Kelly, she listens to any concerns you may have and leaves you feeling so confident & calm. She wants to hear about your family and see how you are doing as an individual. She has been my OB for all of my kids and has guided my husband and I on this journey so smoothly. She gives great explanations for each decision she wants to make to help guide you on this journey which has always given me such trust in her to not doubt her choices.

Great personalized care! Torri listens very well. She explains things thoroughly and takes her time during our appointments. I've never felt rushed and can tell she cares.

Erin Epperly is my saving grace! I first saw Erin when I was barely able to move due to a sore back/pelvic in my first pregnancy. Not only was she able to relieve my pain but she has also been a great source for all of my first time momma questions and concerns. I absolutely love my appointments with Erin. I am always more comfortable and I always walk away with more information and pointers to continue care outside of her office. I feel very comfortable with Erin and feel that I can tell her anything that is on my mind, even if I'm crazy. Love her - would HIGHLY recommend her to everyone I know!

Dr. Gerten is an excellent physician! Dr. Gerten has a wonderful bedside manner, I felt as though she really cared about me as a patient. She kept me well informed, did a great job with educating me about my surgery, as well as doing a fantastic job with my surgery. I am very appreciative and grateful.

Heather is wonderful! She made me feel very comfortable during my first visit. I can't wait to see her again!

Dr. Erin is always more than willing to take the time to explain things to you so that you understand what it is she is working on with you. I have never felt rushed-even when she is busy. She makes it a priority check in and see how things are going since she saw you last and is always giving ways to achieve improvement in your health. All around I think Dr. Erin is an exceptional provider.

Dr. Mahan is amazing!! I can't say enough about Dr. Mahan. She's wonderful. She was my sister's OBGYN and delivered my three nieces and nephews. I came to see her when I was pregnant with my daughter and my experience was nothing short of amazing. She takes her time in appointments to make sure any and all questions you might have are answered, shes super nice and sweet and makes you feel comfortable! I just couldn't imagine seeing anyone else!
