Dr. Sonnie Kim-Ashchi and her staff at Women’s Special Care seek to provide the highest level of care through highly skilled health care professionals and state-of-the-art technologies. Addressing the individual needs and demands of each patient in a warm and caring environment is at the heart of each day’s work and Dr. Kim-Ashchi takes care to make each of her patients feel comfortable with personally-decorated exam rooms and a gentle bedside manner.
Dr. Kim-Ashchi relates to her patients on a very personal level, as she underwent a high-risk pregnancy with her twins. Having that common ground with her patients, where she can share her own experiences with patients, helps her provide the best care possible. She loves when patients return to her for subsequent pregnancies, and takes pride in taking care of many generations of a family.
Her passion for providing the best possible care led her to the daVinci Surgical System. Training for this system is lengthy, the learning curve is steep and excellent hand/eye coordination is essential. She trained at Celebration Hospital in Orlando and performed several da Vinci procedures before she was placed on the da Vinci surgeons list at Intuitive Surgical. She primarily uses the da Vinci for hysterectomy and myomectomy surgery, because patients experience less pain and blood loss than during an abdominal incision procedure, which can lead to a longer hospital stay. The recovery time is much shorter, and her patients heal quickly so they can return to normal life. In addition, Dr. Ashchi is a proctor responsible for educating new robotic surgeons.
Dr. Kim-Ashchi also provides ob/gyn services for routine pregnancies complemented with midwifery care, and high risk pregnancies focusing on hypertension, diabetes, thyroid disease, advanced maternal age and more. Dr. Kim-Ashchi also focuses on infertility, urinary incontinence, in-office ablation for heavy menstrual bleeding, IUDs, Implanon, abnormal pap smears, postmenopausal care, menstrual problems, adolescent gynecology, pelvic prolapse, and hormone counseling.
