Denham Springs |
Not a good listener and offered no real help. Gave me handouts about supplements to take that did no good. Then three years later sent me a bill for hundred's of dollars saying that insurance didn't pay and they forgot to tell us. Waste of my time and money.

Will admit, there have been negative reviews of doc from people just looking for pills. If that's all you want, go elsewhere. She is way too caring, honest and forthright and wll say NO with a quickness! For those who wish to improve upon their health, MDVIP Dr. Karen Dantin is very thorough with lab work, health assessment and a plan of action. Her office also provides: a sauna, acupuncturist, Craniosacral/Massage therapist, Nurse Practitioner, raindrop therapy, colonics and hyperbarics, etc.

I had the pleasure of visiting Dr Dantin a few times over the years, but recently she started charging $1,500 a year just for the privilege to even be able to schedule appointments. Sorry but I'm not wasting that kind of money just to wait an hour past my appointment time to barely even see Dr Dantin for 2 minutes or less (how is she always late if she only see's patients for 2 minutes or less?). On top of that her office staff are very rude now.

Fantastic! Dr. Dantin is thorough and always takes the time to answer any & all questions.
Red Oak, TX |
Unbelievably unprofessional office, from the doctor to her rude office assistant. I went to Karen Dantin for a wellness checkup. She showed little interest in me as a patient. She talked mainly about herself & asked no questions about my one diagnosed medical condition. I could have gotten a more thorough inquiry into my health & well-being from one of my caring, non-medical friends!

My family often leaves this office feeling we have not been helped at all. Much time spent waiting, then hearing about doctor's day, then maybe she listens to issue, but her really helping is hit or miss. She cannot even make referral suggestions when needed. Now with the new "concierge" system, we are invited to pay $1500 more/year each, to retain her services that will still be billed to our insurance& we will still pay co-pay. But nothing offered is of use to us. Happily moving on to new doc.

She listens to her patients and is truly concerned with her patients health.
