    First impression was so bad that I got a refund and left. If you're okay with feeling like a second-class citizen by waiting 1.5 hours to be seen then this is the doctor for you! Nothing says "my time is more important than yours" than by asking you to show up early to fill out paperwork and then leaving you in the waiting room without any updates to how long you'll be waiting. Typical example of how doctors overbook so they make more money, at the expense and detriment of the patient experience

    Dr. Karpman is tops in his field with respect to penile prosthesis placement. He did a superb job, and is a caring, kind individual. He's the go-to guy in Northern CA. It was worth the hour drive.
