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.
Neptune, NJ |
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. But given how bad this doctor is I am sure this is the only help he is able to find. DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR!!! I cannot stress that enough.

Been a patient of this doctor for the past 2 years and feel so compelled to tell everyone how fabulous he is. It's nice knowing when I make an appointment with the office that I will be see by the doctor himself where the trend in the industry seems to be going toward doctors hiring PAs to see a lot of patients. My entire family now sees Dr. K for different derm matters and he has provided phenomenal care and service to each of us. He really knows his cancer stuff, unlike many other drs!!!

Visited with Dr. K over the past 3 months 7 times for very bad acne after taking a recommendation from a coworker. I was put on Acutane a few years ago by another doctor in the area and have never been happy being on this because it is very dangerous for a woman who would like to have children in the near future. Too many doctors are too quick to prescribe Acutane!! Dr. K is fabulous!! He treated and cleared my acne without having to go such a radical route without any possible side effects!

Dr. Karakashian is the most knowledgable and professional dermatologist I have ever been to.
Wall, Nj |
Dr K cleared my acne after 2 visits. My old dermatologist couldn't help me after a whole year, but I as always had to see the PA. Dr Karakashian always sees me himself
Monmouth, NJ |
Saw Dr. Karakashian about 5 times. So my advice is not based on one trip. Avoid. All staff I've interacted with - especially Victoria and the doctor's parents - are very rude. Quick to condescend, talk over, raise voices. They also talk about other patients waiting room in plain speaking voice, for all in waiting to hear. Unethical doctor. Billed for services not rendered. Also administered wrong dosage of treatment knowingly, admitted after. Doctor is 45 min to 2 hours late consistently.

Dr. Karakashian is everything you want from a physician. He is pleasant, knowledgeable and on point every time. I highly recommend Dr. Karakashian for all of your dermatology needs.

Dr Karakashian and his staff deal with a lot of patients, some are in a lot of pain and are angry at the world. He treats your ailments and concerns with compassion and out you go feeling a little better. Skin cancer and its associated troubles can be scary. The good doctor puts your mind at ease and will explain the options, treatments and cures. His staff will help you through the insurance quagmire also. He came in on a Sunday during a holiday weekend to treat me. That's a real doctor!
