After a long battle with an autoimmune illness Dr. Ashford put on a treatment plan to restorative health. I am now able to work full time. I miss the staff because I am so well I do not have regular visits -but it speaks volumes that the the care I received at the Spine Center Worked- After two years of Spine Therapy I feel great. Thank You to Dr Ashford and Staff.. S.N.
Dr. James Ashford is a board-certified anesthesiologist and interventional pain management specialist who leads the team at Ashford Pain Solutions in Athens, Georgia. His goal is to help his patients feel like themselves again by using medically sound treatment practices and a patient-focused approach to therapy that relieves discomfort and addresses the underlying cause of their pain.
During medical school, Dr. Ashford became interested in the physiology and biochemistry of anesthesia, as well as the many different interventional procedures involved in pain management. This interest, coupled with a strong desire to help people dealing with chronic or new-onset painful conditions, led him to specialize in pain management.
Dr. Ashford attended the University of Georgia in Athens for his undergraduate studies and graduated magna cum laude with a degree in biology. He received his medical degree from the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University and completed residency training in anesthesiology and perioperative medicine at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, Florida.
Dr. Ashford then underwent fellowship training in pain management at the University of Florida in Gainesville, before returning to Athens to establish his practice. He grew up in Athens, remains committed to this North Georgia community, and makes his Christian faith and family a priority in his daily life. Dr. Ashford is an accomplished pianist and enjoys traveling and playing golf, basketball, and tennis during his free time.

Dr. Ashford is kind and caring. He goes out of his way to help you to feel better! He is knowledgeable about newer, cleaner medications instead of just "pushing pain pills" like so many pain clinics have done in the past.
