Review of Dr. Karakashian

-

Dr. is good, nurses are ok, however his office/receptionist needs more training in dealing with the public and paper organization. Receptionist is definitely unprofessional.

I find Dr. Karakashian kind, knowledgeable and accommodating. Yes, there might be a little wait in the office, but that's what happens when a doctor is busy. I never feel rushed when it's time for my appointment and I'm happy with the outcome. I appreciate Dr. Karakashian.

Review of Dr. Karakashian

-PT PLEASANT |

I was billed incorrectly. The doctor inflicts a lot of pain. I still have a dent in my leg from the last procedure done in January and it's now May. Stitches were taken when the wound should have been left alone. A perfect small scab had formed. Bad idea to go to this Doc. Sad outcome, because the very first time I called I was seen immediately - a relief because a scaly spot began bleeding. First treatments went OK (though painful) but things went downhill.

Review of Dr. Karakashian

I waited over 1 hr in an overcrowded waiting room to see him. He did not introduce himself nor ask about my medical history. His exam was the least thorough I have ever experienced. He told me to return to remove several moles. I did not return to him as there was much of my body he did not examine. I went to another derm and received a very thorough exam. She measured several moles to watch, but did not see a problem with the ones he wanted to remove. Do not go here! Trust me, I’m an RN.

Review of Dr. Karakashian

-

I was a patient for 19 years. Today, I made the heartbreaking decision to leave Dr. Karakashian's care. His office manager treated me with contempt and bullied me about my choice of insurance when I alerted him of a grievance with my insurer over a bill. I have filed complaints with HHS and the state. When the doctor did not show an appropriate level of concern for my issue, I walked out. After receiving empathetic, compassionate care since I was a kid, I have parted ways in outrage.

Over the years, I have seen Dr. Karakashian whenever I have had an dermatology issue. He is extremely patient, and gentle and knows exactly what the problem is. His treatment has always been 100% curative, he is very gentle and makes the experience stress free.

I understand now why this office is always busy. He diagnosed my cancer in about 15 seconds after my primary treated it as a boil for three months. He treated the cancer without even leaving a scar.

I have never met a more rude and nasty person as the girl that works the desk. I am not sure how anyone can be that miserable. I would almost feel sorry for her because I cant imagine why someone would treat others the way she does especially when many of the patients are dealing with skin cancer. But given how bad this doctor is I am sure this is the only help he is able to find. DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR!!! I cannot stress that enough.
