What People Say About Dr. Andrew Karich, MD

In March 2019, Dr. Karich surgically repaired my broken ankle. Throughout the process, from the first visit, then surgery and several follow-up visits, I found him and his staff to be very professional and very helpful. Although I still have some range of motion issues, I continue to improve and have resumed nearly all of my former activities.
