I've been with Dr. Karl now for a A few years and he has not only listened to me as a person and not as a number to get in and out of the office, but he hears what you are saying. I have a few issues and he deals with all my pain. I would certainly recommend him to anyone if you have difficult pain management Issues, he will help you.

I have seen dr Karl for 5 years. He listens much better and answers with much better knowledge than other doctors I have seen. I put trust in him and find a good patient/doctor bond with him. He is the best doctor I have seen...and yes that is a lot to say. With the long range of physical disabilities I have acquired and inherited through my years dr Karl is the only doctor I will trust to this point. I do not like doctors but I need one and he is actually a great doctor for me.

Dr. Karl has treated my severe fibromyalgia for over 2 years. He listens, he cares and he understands an illness that many believe isn't real. I recommend him highly.
in Huntington, IN |
Didn't listen to what my concerns were. Just wanted to charge a large bill and do injections when weren't needed.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Karl says...

Dr. Karl joined Ortho NorthEast ("ONE") in 2008 and specializes in Pain Management. He is an anesthesiologist with advanced fellowship training in pain management.

Dr. Karl treats most types of pain syndromes, including back, limb, neck, and joint pain. He focuses on non-surgical treatment options for Pain Management using a multidisciplinary approach. Treatment options might focus on the pharmacologic approaches to pain relief, while other patients may benefit from the interventional management of pain. Interventional procedures - typically used for acute or chronic pain - include: epidural steroid injections, facet joint injections, neurolytic blocks, and Spinal Cord Stimulators. Physical therapy and exercise also are used for patients who would benefit from those treatments.

After graduating from Benedictine University in Lisle, IL, he attended medical school at St. George's University School of Medicine in Grenada, West Indies. Dr. Karl was ranked first in his class with a 4.0 grade point average. He continued his education by completing his rotations at Beth Israel Medical Center in Newark, NJ, with his Internship focusing on Internal Medicine. He completed his anesthesiology residency and pain management fellowship at Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, Illinois.

Dr. Karl grew up in the Western Chicago suburbs, and attended Benedictine University. He and his wife both attended St. George's University for medical school. They chose to live in Fort Wayne because they knew the community from nearby relatives. It is also close to his wife's hometown of Marion, Indiana.

Dr. Karl enjoys exercise, travel and dining out. He and his wife Angela Karl, who is a family practice physician in Fort Wayne, look forward to providing quality medical care to Northeast Indiana.
