      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Karlin's Care Philosophy

      I am lucky to have the opportunity to include multiple medical specialties within my own personal practice seeing a wide variety of patients each day. This includes pediatric rehabilitation -- caring for children with a variety of neurologic, neuromuscular, and musculoskeletal disabilities -- as well as pediatric sports medicine and concussion management. In my role as a pediatric physiatrist (physical medicine & rehabilitation) working with children with disabilities, I enjoy the opportunity to develop long term relationships with my patients and their families. I strive to always provide as much detailed information to my patients to aide them in making care decisions for themselves and their children. I value time spent with my patients and families and always aim to never rush a patient during their appointment so that they leave each visit with all of their questions answered regarding their child who often has very complex medical needs. Providing education for the patient and family regarding their diagnosis as well as the reasoning behind my proposed plan of care is extremely important to improve effectiveness of treatment plans and positive outcomes. This is true not just in my pediatric PM&R population but also those individuals being seen in my sports medicine and concussion clinics where the goal is that of restoring function and returning to activity/play as quickly as possible but also as safely as possible. Finally, I value the opportunity to be the chosen provider for my patients to help be their guide either through the often complicated course of chronic medical conditions/disabilities or more acutely on the road to recovery from a musculoskeletal injury or concussion and make myself readily available by phone or email to my patients at all times.
