My mom had a surgery with Dr. Karachristos. We are extremely happy with him. The surgery went better than we expected. He did such a great job and recovery was quick for that big of a surgery. He is an amazing person and cares about his patients. He is always available if you need him. He is very knowledgeable in what he does and gives the best advice.

While we had confidence in Dr Karachristos the office wait time was incredibly long. We sat in the exam room for over an hour waiting to see the doctor.
