I have been seeing Dr Karpman for fertility treatment and for correcting a varicocele. Overall I have been very happy with Dr Karpman and can only recommend him. He has been knowledgeable and explained all the steps along the way making me feel comfortable and informed. His staff is also great. Some days his office may be busy and you may need to wait before being seen. He does spent required time with each patient and addresses every question which is great!

I'm writing this to help others who maybe considering a penile implant. Dr. Karpman is the best. Was recommended by a member of the website LPSG. He explains everything,and what to expect. I followed his instructions after surgery, everything is going well. Would absolutely recommend this over medication. No more waiting for medication to work. If you have had prostate cancer, this is the gold standard for a normal erection . Medicare covers most of the costs,your health insurance will cover .

I Interviewed 4 doctors nationwide (yes I traveled to each: New York, Chicago, Colorado, and California) and concluded that Dr. Karpman was my best choice. Dr. Karpman gave me an implant. His preliminary workup was through and to the point. Everything (positives and negatives) were clearly explained. His procedure was efficient and I healed quickly. His follow-up was good and he made sure I had all the information I needed prior to releasing me. I would readily recommend Dr. Karpman.

I had a 10:15 arrived 9:45 and waited 3 hours before seeing the doctor, who spent 10 minutes with me and advised to do a $20,000 procedure.. They advised they will bill medicare but took an impression of my c.c. Next thing I know I have a $393.00 charge to my credit card. I receive a bill and it asked for my Kaiser number to bill them. I called the office and asked why they charged me when they told me they would bill my ins. They said no they can not I have to pay. 72 years old and ripped off.

First impression was so bad that I got a refund and left. If you're okay with feeling like a second-class citizen by waiting 1.5 hours to be seen then this is the doctor for you! Nothing says my time is more important than yours than by asking you to show up early to fill out paperwork and then leaving you in the waiting room without any updates to how long you'll be waiting. Typical example of how doctors overbook so they make more money, at the expense and detriment of the patient experience

Dr. Karpman is tops in his field with respect to penile prosthesis placement. He did a superb job, and is a caring, kind individual. He's the go-to guy in Northern CA. It was worth the hour drive.
