Ratings for Dr. Karen S. Asbury
Dr Asbury is the first person who has addressed my real problem. I found her kind and caring. I am making some changes in my life that have given me real hope. Her new office is very nice also. When I checked and did some of my own reasearch on my physical problems, I found she was right and others have missed it. I do not think she is trying to sell vitamins, I got mine on the internet and she was not upset at all. For her rating I would say it all in one word: Genius!
TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!!! Actually had to walk out of the appointment. Dr. Asbury was condescending,rude sarcastic, and uncaring. Also heard the receptionist on the phone cussing out a patient who was late on payment. Please do not waste your time and money on her services.
BEWARE! I went to see Dr. Asbury for my issues with glucose intolerance, muscle pain and other symptoms that would not go away. She has very poor bedside manner, rude at times and just disgusting to deal with. So unprofessional, unorganized and will act like she knows everything and can fix anything! She will have you run tests at labs that she gets kick backs from, so if you can get the same work done elsewhere cheaper, she will not allow it. I don't think she should be allowed to practice medicine. She will overload you with supplements (that she sells) and have you do a hair analysis, iodine defficiancy and then a thermogram. She will try to sell you an infrared sauna for your home. She will say anything, just nonsense to sound like she knows. On the second visit, she will forget what she told you to do and will contradict herself. If you correct her, she will turn into a mean old lady...I wasted my money and regret ever setting foot in her office.
In the time I've seen this doctor I've experienced no improvement. She recommended numerous supplements every visit, so many in fact that no one could possibly afford to take them all. She is completely unreachable for any type of emergency. I've run out of medication because she won't return calls, neither to me nor to my pharmacy. Test results indicated I need to be on thyroid medication but when she finally agreed to put me on it, she kept me at such a low dose that there was no possible way I could have seen an improvement. She also failed to run tests to confirm that the medication was even working. I have complained for over a year of exhaustion and her solution is more & more supplements. She continues to push one in particular called Thymate. It's very expensive & although I tried it for several months with no improvement she continued to insist I take it & never ran tests to check the status of my immune system. She also refuses to consult with or refer to other physicians.
I have a very bad experience with Dr. Asbury. When I was trying to convey what was happening with me, she quickly started telling me about her problems and saying, oh she can fix that! I felt as if I had a nodule on my thyroid and she dismissed it as being a problem with the mercury in my filling. She also told me to take these tests as well as some vitamins to the tune of over $700.00!! I took them all back and hope I never see her again. Very unprofessional!
Stay away from this Doctor! Uneducated.Works out of an entry way in her home.The bathroom there is access to is not equipped with a sink where you can wash your hands. Doctor did not clean her own hands before examining and smelled of food. I was given medicine that would have been detrimental to my health and would have aggravted the problem I have. This doctor is a waste of time and money!!
