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
