Patient Comments (1)
in Chicago, IL |
I found Dr. Karacic to be very conscientious and caring. Specifically, the night before my procedure Dr. Karacic said he was reviewing my file, and he believed I needed a special drug that he had to order, so my procedure had to be postponed. I thought it was very thorough that he was reviewing my file for a basic, very common procedure. Further, on the day of my procedure Dr. Karacic was very kind and reassuring, both before and after the procedure. Overall, Dr. Karacic is an excellent doctor.
