Worst doctor I’ve ever seen. Went against 5 other doctor’s recommendations. Now the cancer I had has returned in all likelihood. Unbelievable and unjustifiable arrogance.

As an MSN prepared nurse, I found Dr. Karen Box to be an excellent communicator, taking her time to listen attentively and explain her initial assessment of my condition. She took an extensive medical history and was able to identify key symptoms, conditions, and lab results that appeared insignificant to other physicians at the time - yet were significant to Dr. Box based on my current health issue. I found her to be an excellent clinician and diagnostician.
