She is very caring and works well with other doctors when there are other health issues to be considered. Very knowledgable and helpful in working with insurance issues and tries hard to solve the cause of problems rather than going for the quick, or easiest, option for herself. Very thorough with all testing on sight.

I have seen Dr. Boone several times and have been very satisfied with all aspects of care. She is a very sweet and knowledgable doctor and I recommend her to everyone. She performed surgery on my late husband and his father to remove skin cancer from their noses and ear.

I only waited a few minutes in the exam room. Dr. Boone is always prompt and has a very upbeat and pleasing personality. She answered all my questions and explained her answers. Plus she inquired about symptoms that could cause a problem done the road. I would recommend her with no hesitation.

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.
