First, I would like to say, I was kind of a mess, during our consult, having many symptoms, I want go in to. Suffice to say, I've been suffering. Dr. Kar, and he's wise assistant,never missed a beat. Always showing patience and keeping me on point, and most importantly, listening. I don't choose to call myself old yet, but, will say, I've felt I'll for a good while, and maybe a little jaded. But, now, in short, I've now been on, the recommend medicine and, feel, much better! is not exaggerating,

I have been seeing Dr Kar for nerve entrapment syndromes that I have been having for last couple of years. He is very passionate about listening to my problems and symptoms. He is very professional in providing care to cure something like this. He is always available when I am in some serious conditions. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a good neurologist.

I have called multiple times to leave urgent messages for the doctor over three weeks time and no one has returned any of my calls. I have been to the e.r. a couple of times due to issues with my autonomic nervous system and Dr. Kar refuses to call me, order any labs, or set up an earlier appt time. The office staff always tell me they will leave him a message to call and he never does. I missed 2 weeks of work and had to go on LWOP. My follow-up with him is not until a month away.

I wnt to his office feeling hopeless or tht I wld be looked at as some1 looking 4 a high, (druggies make it hard 4 legit issues- migraines). I took a bag full of the meds I've taken over the yrs, includ. Topax. Wanting a altern. to what I've alrdy tried & fmla for work. He gv me Topax again, a $500 medication & $400 MRI & told me he doesn't do fmla. If I $ to pay for that $400 MRi, then my claim is legit. All I expected realistically ws 2 try new inexpsve. meds & coverage 4 wrk til we fig it out
