Although I am in the medical field myself (medical assistant and EMT) he still explains to me what’s going on and his plan to treat my acid reflux and irritable bowel syndrome. He’s also very caring and good bedside manner.

Had a colonoscopy done today and I was quite nervous but I have NEVER had, or went with someone to have, a procedure done where the staff was ALL so friendly and professional and done when your ACTUAL appointment was scheduled for...got there a little early, Procedure was scheduled for 9:15 and I was actually back and being prepped before that time. There is not one negative thing I can say today about my experience. Superb team of people and I will definitely recommend Dr Karr and his staff.

After a not so great experience while in hospital, left with zero answers. Was referred to Dr. Karr, fit me in next day. Not only did I leave another hospital stay with answers, Dr. Karr's willing to "listen" to his patients is like a breath of fresh air. You don't find many doctor's who take the time...When you find someone like him & his staff, it's a blessing. Feels good to know he had no plans on stopping UNTIL he had answers for me, and for that, I'm grateful.
