New Primary Care Physician Joins BayCare Medical Group's Family Health Center
October 26, 2020
Dr. Ashley Falk will see patients in Winter Haven and teach new physicians in the residency program.
Winter Haven, Fla., (October 26, 2020) – A new BayCare Medical Group physician, Ashley Falk, MD, is now seeing patients at one of the primary care clinics in Winter Haven.
She is joining the Family Health Center, located at 1201 First Street S., Suite 100A. Dr. Falk is board certified in family medicine and is passionate about improving primary care access to our communities.
Dr. Falk completed her undergraduate degree in biology at American University in Washington, D.C. She earned her Doctor of Medicine from the University of Minnesota Medical School in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Dr. Falk then completed a family medicine residency at Offutt Air Force Base/University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska.
As a child, Dr. Falk spent a lot of time with doctors as she coped with a childhood illness, and as a result, developed an interest in the field.
“I really appreciated the quality of care I received,” she said.
In June, the Winter Haven Hospital/Florida State University College of Medicine Family Medical Residency at BayCare Health System welcomed its first residents. That means that Dr. Falk will join her husband, Dr. Nathan Falk and Dr. Ashley Wilk, in instructing the new residents.
“This is an exciting opportunity,” Dr. Falk said. “I’m excited to work with these physicians and be a part of their growth.”
Although Dr. Falk will be seeing patients of all ages, her specialties are women’s health care – including prenatal care and obstetrics – and pediatrics.
She lives in Winter Haven with her husband and three children.
