I am thoroughly disappointed with my experience with Dr. Karim and the staff at Dr. Karim's office, particularly Aidee Canales. I arrived for my appointment on time, and was told by Aidee that Dr. Karim left on an emergency and would not be able to see me and that I would need to come back the next day. After I told her that I would not be able to return the next day, she was extremely curt, rude, and dismissive. This individual should interact with patients as she lacks the most basic skills

I found Dr Karim to be very professional as he takes time to listen to his patient's concerns and addresses them in a caring manner. He will do everything he can to help. His staff is also very courteous and responsible. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a cardio. I wish him more success in his profession.

I'm a lucky medical student who had the great opportunity to be one of Dr. Amin Karim's students. First of all he is a very professional doctor and very knowledgeable about the latest in treatment for heart condition. Secondarily, he answers all patients' concerns and has an excellent physician patient relationship , and he gives the patients enough time to speak. I highly recommend people to Dr. Karim and I encourage students to have a such great opportunity to be one of his students.
