What People Say About Dr. Karen Blitz, DO

So glad I didnt listen to her. I felt forced by her to go on a very aggressive MS medication. She basically said I had to choose something. so I did, I chose a new doctor. It has been a year now with no symptoms and no medication. Although I can appreciate her medical opinion she should appreciate her patients needs too. I felt Bullied into picking a medication and she had a very negative prognosis for me even though my tests were not completely conclusive.

Very very horrible doctor. She gets really annoyed when you ask her questions. She literally gave up on me truthfully I feel like she wanted me to die. I'm walking and more stronger thanks to my Rheumatologist and my Faith. She certainly needs holy water and I pray for her .

I had a horrible experience with Dr. Blitz. I find her to be uncompassoniate and very cold. I left my last appointment in tears after being insulted, laughed at and told I'm not smart. I will never go back there reguardless of credentials.
