I love Dr. Ashby, she always provides me with excellent care. I have waited to hear back from the nurses/scheduling department about procedures prior to my surgery and it was difficult to get the information I needed. It made me very nervous about my surgery.

I have been seeing Dr. Ashby for many years for my gyn needs. This was my annual exam. Fortunately at the present time I do not need a follow up appointment. Her whole office is wonderful and I will continue to visit the office annually or as needed.

I was new to Dr Ashbys's services d/t my previous dr's retirement. Dr Ashby was kind, extremely knowledgeable & understanding. She saw me multiple times and at all times spent a great deal of time with me, explained all care provided & listened & respected my concerns. I was highly impressed with her bedside manner & breadth of knowledge from my first visit. I highly recommend this physician.

As a new patient, this was my first visit with Dr Ashby. She was very knowledgeable and professional. She listened carefully to me and answered my questions and concerns. Her nurse and office receptionists were attentive. The nurse assistant I spoke with by phone a week after my visit relayed my questions and concerns to the doctor and timely called me back with the doctor's comments and answers.

Industry Relationships

University Hospitals is committed to transparency in our interactions with industry partners, such as pharmaceutical, biotech, or medical device companies. At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.

As of December 31, 2016, Karen Ashby did not disclose any Outside Relationships with Industry.
