    Dr. Karp's Reviews

    Likelihood of recommending Dr. Karp to family and friends
    3.8
    based on 40 total surveys (4 with reviews)
    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.

    The first time I met him, he had a syringe in his pocket, the same way most people would carry a pen. When I stated that I was opposed to injections he became condescending and dismissive. I was referred back to him for nerve studies (NCVs), his staff humiliated me. My copay had gone up a week before and I did not have the difference on me. I asked to reschedule. They said it would take three visits for one test and I'd need to pay it all now or leave. Greedy, condescending and rude.

    Dr. Karp was condescending and rude to my elderly mother who suffers with dementia, he had no bedside manner. He should not be working with the elderly. Worst Doctor I've even been to. I am not saying he doesn't have the skills or knowledge base, but he is inappropriate and unkind. Poor listening skills and flip answers. Nothing warm or genuine. We had a return visit and my mother was having a difficult time tolerating the medicine, he threw it in the trash can very forcefully, hostile man.

    When I called to reschedule I was told they could not see me because I missed my appointment. My father passed away the day my appointment was scheduled. When I explained why I missed my appointment no compassion was shown, I was put on hold and when they came back to the phone I was told they would have to speak to Dr. Karp and would call me back. They called back the next day and said I would have to pay $100 to secure my appointment and that is the only way I could be seen.

    A friend had an appt sched with the Dr and was sitting at her father's bedside as he passed so unfortunately she did not call to cancel the appt. When she called to resched she was told she could not as she did not cancel prev appt. She explained the situation and was told they would discuss it with the Dr and call her back. The office called back and said she could resched the appt after she paid a $100 no show fee! There has to be exceptions, if not, this is a very COLD Dr!
