I have had two appointments and was treated kindly by the staff and saw Dr. Karsan within a reasonable wait time. Dr. Karsan was kind and gave me the time to discuss my concerns. Dr. Karson set up an Echo and that was done in a timely manner in the office and as before all staff were professional and willing to help with any concerns.

Dr. Kansan always has a big smile when he greets patients and family members. He always encourages patients to keep trying to improve their health issues and to keep trying and be patient. Our phone calls are promptly returned and assistance is just a phone call away. Prescriptions are promptly refilled. His staff is always polite and helpful. Dr. Karsan has been taking care of my husband since 2011. When he left St. Francis Cabrini we followed him to Rapides. He is also my cardio physician.
