About Dr Bayer
Dr. Ashley C. Bayer received her undergraduate Bachelor's degree from the University of Florida and completed medical school at Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. She then completed her pediatric internship in Orlando at Arnold Palmer and Winnie Palmer Hospitals, where over 14,000 babies are born annually. She finished her training with her pediatric residency in Tampa and St. Petersburg at Tampa General Hospital and Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital respectively.
She is board-certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and is an Internationally Board-Certified Lactation Consultant. She had the honor to serve as the pediatrician for the Seminole Tribe of Florida for the 5 years prior to starting her own practice. When it became time to be a little closer to home, Dr. Bayer found Dr. Day. He was retiring and did not want to transition his life- long practice to a large group for the same reasons that Dr. Bayer did not want to work for a large group. Dr. Bayer took over the practice in January 2017, and hence Palm Pediatrics was born.
As a mother herself, Dr. Bayer's passion is caring for children. She not only enjoys providing on-going care but makes it a point to educate parents and children on the specifics behind the treatments she recommends. As a Doctor of Osteopathy (D.O.) she provides a comprehensive, educational, well-rounded, and conservative approach to healthcare. After all, the word "doctor," comes from Latin docēre, meaning "to teach." Teaching is one of Dr. Bayer's favorite parts of being a pediatrician.
Having started her collegiate education at the University of Florida, she is a Gator fan through and through. She is married to her college sweet heart and they enjoy spending time with their three young children, Charlie, Amelia and June. Some of her favorite hobbies are spending time with her family, traveling, and soaking up the salt, sun and sand that beautiful South Florida has to offer.
