A Team Approach With Dr. Yu for Women’s Health Issues

Ashleigh Pinedo joined Dr. Yu’s practice in 2020 to assist him with surgery and offer general gynecological services. She meets with patients for annual exams, diagnoses gynecological concerns, and recommends treatment options.

Her work complements Dr. Yu’s. If patients need surgery to address their concerns, Ashleigh has training and experience assisting with both invasive and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery procedures.

She chose to join Dr. Yu’s practice because she agrees with his philosophy of performing surgery only when necessary. Like Dr. Yu, Ashleigh prioritizes less invasive options where possible.

An Experienced Registered Nurse and Nurse Practitioner

Throughout her six years of experience as a registered nurse in a hospital setting, Ashleigh learned what hospital outpatient care tends to miss. Her goal is to prevent issues and keep her patients healthy enough that they never need to visit her former hospital.

Her experience in emergency wards helped her become an empathetic and understanding medical provider. It also provided her with a depth of knowledge, training, and experience on gynecological issues that most general physicians and nurse practitioners do not have.

Creating a Safe Space for Women to Be Heard and Understood

Ashleigh’s favorite part of the job is developing long-term relationships with her patients. She enjoys seeing patients year after year and creating a comfortable environment for them to discuss their concerns.

It is important to her that women feel safe coming to her about any issue, big or small. No concern is too small or peculiar for her to address and treat with care and empathy.

Ashleigh has lived in Orange County for most of her life and is happy to support the women in her community.

Ashleigh’s Hobbies and Interests

Ashleigh enjoys keeping fit. She attends Pilates classes regularly and stays active. She also enjoys classic literature and usually has at least one book waiting to be read at home. In her free time, Ashleigh enjoys being with her family and friends.
