Dr. Karp Says:

These are only a few surveys. Only patients upset with having to pay their co-pays or not getting the narcotics they asked for have sent these in. There are many, many patients that I have seen over the years, including several from my first year in practice - 1980. Many patients refer us to family and friends. Our staff is always kind and helpful. We always go the extra mile.

I am not saying he doesn't have the skills or knowledge base, but he is inappropriate and unkind. Poor listening...more
