Dr. Karlin saved my life when he Practiced in Emerson, N.J. He, in my opinion is a GREAT Dr. I still remember him fondly after all these years and thank him for caring for me during a very difficult surgery. I would trust his opinion and listen to his expert advise. I will NEVER forget him ??

I've been a patient of Dr. Andrew Karlin for 15 years. This statement is my humble opinion of Dr Karlin. Over the last 5 years, I feel Dr. Karlin has checked out, he's lost interest and he has been very cavalier with his treatment plan for my Bronchitis. He's now close to retirement, he is just counting the days. If you are looking for a Pulmonary Specialist, keep looking. 15 years ago, he was the man. Today, I no longer trust his judgement for the betterment of my health.

Fantastic doctor! Wonderful assistant. Never rushes you in and out. I have had several pulmonologists over the years and he is the best. Worked with me and got me on a great course of treatment. I would recommend him to all my family and friends.

My first visit with Dr. Karlin was wonderful on so many levels. He is very nice, caring, thorough, and knows what he's doing. He changed my medication (prior doctor prescribed) and I feel so much better. His nurse is also very nice. Great experience all around. Would highly recommend him.

Dr. Karlin has zero compassion for patients and their family. He verbally assaulted me and yelled at me in regards to my comatose grandmother when I told him that we had a new Dr taking care of her very politely. He proceeded to yell about people like you who cannot make decisions, this is why the health care industry and US are so messed up. etc etc. This is in regards to continuing care for my grandmother who has only been here for 4 days. It was a horrendous and horrifying experience.

Absolutely the worst Doctor I have come in contact with. No sense of decency or compassion for grieving families. Verbally attacking my family, telling us to pull the plug. Telling us how much it is costing each day and that in England it wouldn't have lasted this long. Who does that? I hope no one ever has to go through what we went through. Request another doctor asap. Don't believe a thing he says!
