Patient Comments (1)
in Minneapolis, MN |
I recently visited Dr. Karon about chronic pain problems, he was late for the appointment and he didn't listen very well to my concerns. He did a rushed and poor examination of areas of concern and cut our 20 minute appointment to 10 minutes. He told me to come back in 3 weeks and left the room. I was then sent a bill for $192, for a very poor quality 10 minute visit. I'm not going back. I can't afford to just give my poverty wages away to a doctor that doesn't put the care in health care.
