Over the years, I have seen Dr. Karakashian whenever I have had an dermatology issue. He is extremely patient, and gentle and knows exactly what the problem is. His treatment has always been 100% curative, he is very gentle and makes the experience stress free.

I understand now why this office is always busy. He diagnosed my cancer in about 15 seconds after my primary treated it as a boil for three months. He treated the cancer without even leaving a scar.

I have never met a more rude and nasty person as the girl that works the desk. I am not sure how anyone can be that miserable. I would almost feel sorry for her because I cant imagine why someone would treat others the way she does especially when many of the patients are dealing with skin cancer....more
