I have extremely twisted intestines and Dr karsan is the ONLY doctor who has successfully completed my colonoscopy. My intestines are a challenge for the gastro doctors. I appreciate Dr karsan's patience, expertise, and great bedside manner. I highly recommend Dr Karsan. I would also like to thank Christina Lugo, Dr. Karsan’s nurse, for her patience and returning my call so quickly.

In addition to being a wonderful gastroenterologist, Dr. Karsan is a delightful gentleman. I totally trust the care and oversight he provides (I have Barrett's Syndrome from years of an untreated hiatal hernia prior to my being referred to him). He has a very good bedside manner and is very engaging. After my experiences with him my wife also has seen him for diagnostics. I recommend him highly, without reservation.

Starting with Christina Lugo, Dr. Karsan’s nurse, her efficiency, and attention to details, are impressive. Dr. Karsan took his time to listen to my issues, with patience. He gave explanations in a very clear and detail manner. I have been in healthcare for over 30 years. I can truly say that I feel very confident and positive to have chosen Dr. Karsan as my Gastro!

I have seen Dr Karsan a few times including a Telehealth appointment! I also recently had a procedure done and I felt he was wonderful at calming my fears, as he knew I was apprehensive! Dr. Karsan is really a great doctor! I can’t figure out why he only has 41/2 stars??. And his staff is great also!

Dr. Karsan is by far the best doctor I have ever dealt with, and coming from someone who prefers natural methods of healing, that says a lot! I am very participative with my health, and not once have I felt that he was rushing me without hearing me. There is a saying that goes, "people don't care how much you know, until they know how much you care". Dr. Karsan personifies this saying. He is thorough, compassionate, and despite his stellar credentials, refreshingly humble. I recommend him without reservation.

Dr. Karsan is an excellent physician. I agree with every one of his "5-star" reviewers. He is extremely thorough; provides clear explanations; is patient; organized; does his research on each patient in order to be prepared for the office visit as well as any procedure necessary; and exactly who you'd want in your corner for gastroenterology issues! I've already recommended him to numerous friends. The office staff was also professional and available for my questions. Very helpful!
