Companies identified as True Blue Businesses deliver quality goods and services while demonstrating a strong commitment to their customers, employees, and the community. They act with honesty and integrity, are “true blue” and loyal to the people they serve, and often go the extra mile. In short, they are the companies that Dallas-Fort Worth can count on.

True Blue Businesses are approved based on information obtained through comprehensive interviews and research. The evaluation process involves input from principals, officers, management, employees, and customers to determine a company’s ability to consistently demonstrate the following:

  • honesty and integrity in day-to-day dealings with customers, in the management of employees, in interactions with the community;
  • responsiveness in resolving customer complaints, handling employee matters, and adapting to changing market conditions;
  • and goodwill toward customers, employees, and the community.

Ashton Podiatry employs 24 staff members and has treated thousands of patients over the past 30 years. The Ashton brothers, Drs. Roy, Scott, and Ivan, carry out their mission of making “happy feet” by taking that extra step to provide the best, state-of-the-art care for their patients in each of the practice’s four locations. The practice has been included among D Magazine’s Best Doctors for the past seven years.

Services include everything from preventive measures, to conservative treatments, to major reconstructive surgeries. They treat all types of foot conditions, including ingrown toenails, warts, fungal infections, heel pain, arch pain, bunions, hammertoes, injuries, and Diabetes-related foot conditions.  X-rays and ultrasound studies are performed onsite with immediate results. Physical therapy is also available.

Ashton Podiatry’s proven record of putting patients first helped the practice achieve its True Blue status. During the True Blue evaluation process, patients consistently reported that they didn’t feel like they were being shuffled through a system at Ashton Podiatry.

“It’s really simple, we treat our patients the way we want to be treated. And we treat our employees the way we want them to treat our patients. We’re here as a service, we’re here for people; they’re not here for us and we do everything we can to help them,” Dr. Roy Ashton said. “Being named a True Blue DFW Business makes us feel really good that we’re doing things right. We enjoy what we do and this recognition just reinforces what we do.”
