Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Karp listened to my concerns and provided a thorough exam with a knowledgeable and empathetic attitude. I felt comfortable during the physical exam, as he was easy to talk to, and answered questions without the feeling of being rushed. Most of the staff were very nice and respectful as well. I would recommend Dr Karp should a family member or friend be in need of a g.i . specialist.

Not good I was running late and I called to let his office know and they said no problem when I got there 15 minutes late I paid my copayment the girl told the doctor I was there and he instructed her to reschedule my visit so much for taking care of your patients! I would like to know how many time he made his patients wait for him he said he was done work at 4:00 pm they gave me my copay back and I would never make another appointment with this uncaring “doctor “

Dr Karp was extremely cautious and caring. His questions were very easy to understand and answer. Although of those good features, he was bland and wasn't sure whst was going on as I was fighting stomach issues. Average physician, very caring.

Dr. Karp is terrific. He was reassuring before my procedures and was there to greet me with my results almost immediately after my colonoscopy and The Endoscopy. He was cordial and direct to the point. A true professional. I am scheduled to follow up with the doctor and will tell him again in person that I was glad he did such a great job. Sincerely, Jimmy M
