Really Great Doctor saved my life in 1982 Louisville Can’t Thank him enough Same wife 2 kids and 4 grand kids later Thanks Again Doc Dave
in Ft Smith, AR |
I began seeing Dr. Kareus in the 90's, he always takes the time to answer my questions, evaluate my conditions and medications, and he is willing to make changes to my treatment plan, if needed. I appreciate that Dr. Kareus uses all resources available and is not reluctant to go outside of the norm. His time, knowledge, and perseverance is very much appreciated.
