Dr Carruthers is an excellent physician. I'm always very happy with her care of my son. She is a excellent listener and provides reasoning behind her diagnosis or instructions. She is fantastic with my son and he is always very calm and comfortable with her. Would recommend her and the whole office to anyone searching for a great pediatrician!

Dr. Carruthers is an amazing physician. We drive 40 minutes to come and see her. She is personable and caring, but she is also very straightforward and to the point. She is able to make connections about multiple health details that are a part of the large picture for the health of our daughter, who has had some recurring health issues. She is the best and we wouldn't go anywhere else!

Dr. Amy Carruthers is the best doctor we have ever had. My only wish is that she was a family practitioner so we would never outgrow her. She is thorough, extremely knowledgeable, kind, compassionate, respectful and makes you feel like you have a doctor in the family.

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.
