Dr. Kar Says:
"

Patient satisfaction scores specially on Health Grades are unfair because they do not represent the expertise of physicians and sometimes unfounded comments are made.Instead one should review ones malpractice history and complaints to the Medical Board while choosing a physician.

"

Patient Comments (2)

Called up about 10 different times for 2 consecutive days and every time the phone kept saying that office is closed for lunch or the office is closed. No options to leave a message or anything. That's really bad first impression for anyone.
