While good at her field of practice, her bedside manner and interaction with patients is one of the worst I have seen. I will NOT recommend her to anyone. She has very little concern for her pantie ts Asa person.

I had a terrible experience with Karen Boone and her office staff. She was very rude and did not answer my questions. She rushed the appointment along and was just concerned about making money off of parients for tests not needed. Everytime i tried to ask a question or give her my symptoms, she cut me off and never gave me an answer. She left the room and never returned and next thing i knew was my appointment was over. I left there worse off medically and wasted an entire day there.

This is the first negative review I have ever written for a physician. That should speak volumes. Dr. Boone is condescending with a "my way or the highway" attitude. She is not willing to take additional time with patients to explain diagnosis and test results. She is very short, rude and full of herself. There are too many other wonderful ENT's in the area that do not treat patients this way. I would never recommend Dr. Boone to any of my friends, family or coworkers.
