Dr. Kara wasn't like the other he never tried to minimize my pain. He asked what I thought would help, what had worked in the past & he came up with a treatment plan that was perfect. He realizes that my quality of life had decreased & I was struggling daily to do normal every day chores.

I would never send any one there he has no bed side manner and is so rude he made a nurse cry one time he make you feel bad for everything and half the time you cant really understand him
in Ft Wayne, IN |
Don't waste your time !!! Even though you read all his achievements-awards. He Sucks. I visited twice, he nor his NP could remember why nor get there reports RIGHT. His NP couldn't even get my return visit right. WOW DR. KARA mabe u should retire. I have EDS-CRPS and failed lumbar n cervical fusion. Hmmm DR kara isn't this your field. Stay away.....
in Ft Wayne, IN |
Always compassionate and helpful explaining anything I have questions about. He is also sympathetic yet stern when it comes to apprehension or fear of needles. The needle is not my enemy, the pain is (not his quote, just how he has helped me to see my treatments). I truly would be lost in a world of unbearable pain if it were not for this angel on earth! Thank you so much for all you and your staff do for me. Tina M.

in Avilla, Indiana |
Excellent physician, was willing to take me on after being turned away by many other doctors. Was treated extremely well by him and his staff. The only thing I did not like was he was an hour and a half away from me. I will go back to him if I am in need of his services.
