      in Santa Cruz, CA |
      Dr. Karam is the best doctor I have ever encountered, and being a health-care professional myself, I have met and worked with hundreds of doctors. He is the perfect blend of brilliant, skilled (surgically), funny, patient and very kind. He is genuine and easy to approach. He treats you like a friend and it's easy to forget that he is a brilliant intellect with the ability to literally save lives on a daily basis. Anyone would be lucky to have Dr. Karam as their physician.

      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.
