Been a patient of Dr. Karkoutly since 2008. He has saved my life many times. He is professional. He is compassionate. When in the hospital he visits often. He answers questions. He makes you know he cares. He has an amazing memory. I really like him as a person and admire him as a physician. I always know he will listen to my concerns. Best doctor I have ever had.

Dr Karkoutly and his staff are the best at taking care of us, their patients. They get you into the office fast, test are done at the office and you have results the same day. Dr K has saved my husband and brother from having a heart attack by catching blockages early and fixing them with stents. Dr K and staff are family to us!
