Dr. Karst is one of the Doctors I've ever had the pleasure of be a patient of. He's always caring and tell you like it is and you can talk to him and he's not in a hurry to get out. I recommend my mother and wife to him and they love him.

I consider him to be a lot like the character, Dr. Welby. When he comes into the room, he will ask "what can I do for you?" That's his way to find out what's going on with you. i.e., symptoms. He patiently listens. He has always properly diagnosed and treated my health problems. I feel that he takes a personal interest in the overall care of his patients. He never rushes one in and out.

My experience was not good. First, he comes in and slams the door behind him, asks me in a very rude manner, what's going on like he has a problem, then he slams his laptop on the counter top. I'm a new patient so I'm thinking to myself i should've stuck with my previous doctor. Also, my visit was VERY short as well. Basically, he just shook my hand and left.

Dr. Karst listens to your symptoms and makes his diagnosis. I did not have to wait long for an appointment to get in to see him. I do not have to wait long in the waiting room. I am pleased with Dr. Karst's care for me.
