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!
