Dr. Karbassi answered all questions that were asked and explained my diagnosis in comprehensible terms. He is a personable and caring doctor. His ability as a surgeon who’s knowledge of current cutting-edge surgical techniques brought me to trust in him to perform my surgery. He will not push surgery on you, but will give you options for you to make your own choices. I highly recommend Dr. John Karbassi to anyone. He is the real deal!

This is really just what I want in a doctor. He's really smart, he knows his field -- and he listens. I came in with a list of five concerns and questions and rattled them off. Sometimes that irritates a doctor -- but I don't like to wait that long and then get home and realize I meant to ask about..... He not only answered my five questions, but he was respectful in doing so -- and even remembered all five of them..... Just a great guy, a great doctor....Highest recommendation!

I was disappointed, I spent under 10 minutes with Doc. Staff is nice, friendly and the office is clean. Just wish I didn't feel rushed and the doctor explained the Rx and treatment plan with more thoroughness. I canceled follow up and will reschedule with another physician.
