Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry.

Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

Lynette is the best. Shes very sweet and easy to talk to. She makes you feel comfortable. I am a very self conscious person and I don't feel uncomfortable when I'm there.

I found that my care provider has generally been dismissive of my reproductive care. Since coming to this practice I've had two miscarriages and have never had any conversations about how or why this occurred other than to express that it's sad. I've had a variety of symptoms I was looking forward to discussing with my OBGYN, but she barely glanced at the blood work noting that if I have normal periods everything is fine and balanced hormonally. Just felt super rushed and awkward with student in the room. I left feeling shocked that I can't even have a 5 minute conversation about symptoms and potential causes or cures with my dr. My Primary, Endcronologist told me to review bloodwork with gyno and discuss with her, but she had no interest or time to discuss my physical symptoms. I either want birth control or I don't and if I have periods I'm fine. Seemed very odd and as I reflected on it I'm very disappointed.

Dr. Karth is a very thorough doctor. She leaves no stones unturned when it comes to my medical care.

My appointment was rescheduled 4 times. My original appointment was the end of November. It was rescheduled to the beginning of December, then rescheduled again for the end of February. I received a call that the February appointment needed to be rescheduled and I couldn't get in until April. When I told the scheduler my original appointment was November, she offered me an appointment with a CNP, saying that the appointment shouldn't need to be rescheduled. I then received a call that the appointment needed to be rescheduled. When I finished with the scheduler, I called the office and they were able to get me in with Dr. Karth in February.

I love Dr. Karth! She really cares about all of her parients.

Dr. Karth took another phone call while on her call with me. She was on the other phone call for several minutes and then once she returned to me, said she had other patients waiting. She then said she answered all of my questions- which she had NOT. Terrible service from a licensed doctor.

Reviewed on Jan 19, 2024

I have already recommended Dr. Karth. She thorough looked through the relevant parts of my chart to make my appointment personalized and not do unnecessary procedures. She was excellent at answering all of my questions and relating to me specifically.

She is excellent!

My only negative comment is that the room was where I was examined was not as clean as I expected. Most exam rooms of doctors are cleaner.

Dr. Karth is very patient. She has always made me feel important to her and not just another patient. She's the BEST I've ever encountered.

Being a patient of Dr. Karth has been a honor. Unlike the OBs I had during my delivery, Dr. Karth allows me to feel and be seen and heard. She's a true gem of Cleveland Clinic.

Reviewed on Aug 29, 2023

Dr Karth explained everything she was doing throughout the procedure and frequently checked in with me to see how I was tolerating it.

Reviewed on Aug 4, 2023

De. Karth makes me feel very rushed and like she has no time for me or my questions. I feel like I'm a bother to her and she's just trying to hurry along to get out of my presence.

Reviewed on Jun 6, 2023

Dr. Karth is exceptional with her patients. She perfectly balances relatability, positivity and education, especially when discussing difficult subject matter such as failed pregnancies.
