I have been treated by Dr. Karol for apprx. 4 years. He has always taken the time to explain my condition, and treatments. The two procedures he conducted went very smoothly, and the staff was responsive to my questions when calling the office following the procedures. Dr. Karol has also called me directly by phone to share lab results.
