Patient Comments (3)
in Spokane, WA |
After trying to get treatment for myasthenia gravis in Spokane WA for 4 months, without success, I drove to O.H.S.U. in Portland, OR. Dr. Karam has been a wonderful doctor, with a dry sense of humor that some people may not always understand. I have worked in the health care field for over 15 years myself and do not trust doctors because of prior experience. I trust Dr. Karam and have found him to be caring and attentive to detail. He listens and remembers what I say. I trust him implicitly.
in Portland, OR |
He saw me for at most 10 minutes. Did not care that I have had a diagnosis for 8 years of upper motor neuron disease. He changed my diagnosis for no reason. He refused to have any kind of dialogue about it or acknowledge if he'd reviewed my 9 years' worth of medical records. He is arrogant and unable to establish a doctor-patient rapport. He thinks he knows everything. His ego prevents him from being anything near a good doctor. I don't care how smart he is he has no people skills.
in Kenly, NC |
He competely dismissed me when I told him about how my problem is getting worse. Told me not to close my eyes when I'm standing, chuckled and walked out.
