Best ObGyn!
Wonderful office experience. From the front desk staff to the nurses and doctor. I’ve been searching for a new ObGyn for some years now and loved the experience with Dr. Karm. She was kind, made me feel comfortable, very professional, thorough and very knowledgeable. So happy to have found her! She is booked out a few months for an an initial visit but she’s definitely worth the wait!

I had my first visit with Dr. Karm today. I have been struggling with health issues for many years and have a great deal of anxiety about visiting an OBGYN. I was put completely at ease by Dr. Karm. She was efficient, compassionate, and professional. I am grateful to have the support of someone so clearly effective in their profession.

Dr. Karm is so easy to talk to. Not only to ask questions but just to share things. Spends time going over your information( my first appt. with her) As I had some breast issues prior to our appt. she promptly made referrals that were necessary to have. And the outcome was positive! I have already recommended her to friends!!!
