Dr. Carolyn D Ashworth has the following 2 specialties
- Adolescent Medicine
Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Dr. Ashworth is an excellent doctor. Been going here with my son for over 2 yrs. she takes her time explaining the diagnosis and our concerns. She retired few months ago, and we will definitely be missing her. The new doctor at the clinic, Dr. Kayass is great as well. So we will continue to go to that clinic. The office staff is excellent. Mary knows me & my son by name and is always so polite/sweet to talk to. The nurses Mona & Sherrail also have excellent knowledge and experience and are always helpful. If you call with questions/concerns, they return your calls in a timely manner. The best part about everyone in this clinic including the doctors is that, they are reasonable and sincere. They will explain what & why things need to be done, which makes me a very happy mom. Yes, the wait times are long sometimes, but that's very common with good pediatricians who have many patients, and have to attend to sick children.
This Dr and the office is extremely busy! Long wait times.. I have waited for 45 min to see the dr. And after waiting for long the dr would spend 2-3 min max with my infant during her scheduled physical appt. She would stand so close to the exit door of the room and would not give a chance of asking any questions with one hand on the door rushes to leave out from the room. She would give generic updates during physical check ups only! She fails to update a prescription med in the records which my infant is no longer using coz she never followed up with us later and just imagined that my baby still have that problem!!! That is neglect of patient care!!!! And ya we didn't have a chance to ask her regarding that coz she leaves the room so fast!!!! The office staff, reception people don't have much knowledge and are not well connected among themselves. I am looking for a different doctor.
Please do not take your child to see this physician!! She has the worst bedside manner. My husband and I got stuck with her as our pediatrican when I was delivering at the hospital and she was extemely rude. She never took her time to explain anything. I am deeply concerened that she cares for children, she is very cold and distant. I would never recommend her to anyone I know!! Please, please, please do not take your child to her!!
I am surprised by all of the negative comments about Dr. Ashworth. She is the pediatrician to both of my children, ages 7 and 3, since birth. Show me another pediatrician's office where you don't have to sit and wait for your appointment. I'd be anxious to see it. Dr. Ashworth's office is not any worse than any other office, as far as wait time is concerned. She is definitely busy, but I have never felt she has not cared about my concerns regarding my children. I actually like the fact that she does not make mountains out of mole-hills and gets right to the point. There have been many times I was overly concerned about an issue that wasn't even that big of a deal, after talking with her. Both of my children had issues with several ear infections and Dr. Ashworth did not just jump to the, "OK, let's put tubes in", option. She suggested treating the symptoms and the kids eventually grew out of it. Some Dr's are quick to please the parent and do what the parent thinks is best. Dr. Ashworth sticks by her expertise and helps you to see other options, that are purely in the best interest of your child. My kids love her!
