Dr. Karmali is an outstanding doctor. I have been seeing her the last few months while my main PCP is out of the office, and have only the highest praise for her. She has helped ease the anxiety I normally feel at doctor appointments, and always makes me feel valued and respected. Apart from her caring and compassionate nature, she takes her time getting to know her patients to better understand their concerns and to help them have the best care and treatment possible. I highly recommend her!
She is not someone who I believe can heal you objectively- as in, she will recommend one way of doing something and not take into account your financial or time constraints, or even phobias. She's very pushy when you don't agree with her. She is not warm. She also refuses to prescribe any medication that needs to be monitored for pain or anxiety. She'll tell you right off the bat. Like a drill sergeant that you know has a heart and isn't a bad person but makes you uncomfortable.
...I like Dr. Etzkorn...so far, he has been right on target...he's not perfect, but who is?...that's why they call it practicing medicine...
I came in for a really deep cut on my leg. She did a great job, personable and friendly.
I just saw this provider and will never see him again or refer anyone I know to him. I was left sitting in the exam room with no explanation, next steps or actual care plan. He did manage to tell me how to get back to the lobby as he was walking out…Thank GOD it wasn’t anything major, but to me it was concerning enough to make the appointment. Now, I get to do a scavenger hunt and try to figure out what I need to do and if there was a Rx called in for me or if this is over the counter.
Dr. Karmali was recommended to me by a co-worker upon moving back to the PNW. I instantly liked her. She spends as much time with you as needed, listens and follows-up. Overall, she's the best primary physician I've ever had.
Dr Etzkorn is extremely knowledgable. Sure, he's not the bubbiliest person I've ever met, but he's a medical doctor, not your childhood best friend. I really enjoyed my two experiences with him, and will continue to see him. I trust him with my medical care 100% and recommend him to anyone.
Awful. Not suited for working with people at all. Cold, uncaring, condescending, zero compassion.
My last visit was to come up with a medication plan for my situational anxiety and to have an STD test. I was given one option for my anxiety, which I was not comfortable with and my STD test was subsequently canceled after providing a urine sample. When I inquired about a different medication option and the STD test. I was flatly told no to the medication, without other options presented and was informed that there was no record of the STD ever being ordered. First time for everything.
Dr. Do was patient, listened carefully and informative. I am typically anxious about going to the doctor but she is so kind and comforting, I don't dread it when I see her. She also pays attention to what you say instead of just assuming the need to prescribe or advise you things before she has even heard your symptoms.
Dr. Karmali was my first doctor in Seattle. She is friendly & personable (spent the first part of my first appointment getting to know me), knowledgeable, and takes notes, which is how she remembers so much about me from year to year. When I was sick, I called the triage nurse, who gave her notes to Dr. Karmali, who called me on my cell phone & left a VM to personally let me know that she wrote me a prescription, and all I'd need to do is call the office to contact the pharmacy. Top tier doctor!
Dr. Do is very sweet, patient and caring. A wonderful doctor. I've had my share of arrogant, rude ones and it's nice to meet one who listens.
Best pcp I have ever had. I was an RN for 30 yrs and he is kind takes his time and keeps current on changes in medicine. Outstanding
