Dr. Karakashian has been our family doctor for many years. He cares and listens to us and considers all the available information before deciding on a treatment or medicine. He knows his patients well and spends quality time in exploring the reasons for a visit. Even when I require a specialist, I consult with him and rely heavily on his advice and recommendation. More than a medical professional, Dr. Karakashian is a kind-hearted human being.

Dr. Karakashian is the most patient and concerned doctor I have ever had. But after joining the new medical group I dread calling his number. The service with that group is terrible. Next appointment after refilling my prescription will be my last one.
