    Dr. Ashok J. Kar, MD
    DR. KAR RESPONDS - (Dr. Kar, edit your response)

    Patient satisfaction scores specially on Health Grades are unfair because they do not represent the expertise of physicians and sometimes unfounded comments are made.Instead one should review ones malpractice history and complaints to the Medical Board while choosing a physician.
