Dr Douek is a wonderful, caring and compassionate doctor. She does not rush through your appointments with her. She listens to your concerns and makes sure you leave her office with a plan on how to take care of it without feeling overwhelmed. I wish all doctor's were like her. I would highly recommend her!

Karen has always been a very special person besides an excellent physician. She will always take the time to "LISTEN" to her patients and give an honest response to all questions. These days, with the fast pace everyone does daily, this is a rare quality. I would highly recommend her to anyone who would like the best kidney physician the state can offer.

I have had 2 meetings with Dr. Douek and they have both been really positive. She was very personable and made me feel comfortable each time. She is sensitive to my needs and professional and able to explain my situation in understandable terms and is an excellent listener. She has my complete trust.

I found my first appointment with Dr Douek to be amazing. She was well prepared with my history. She made only a small change in my meds & has asked me to record my B.P.'s twice a day until I see her next or if I find that it remains too high. I felt that she acknowledged my medical background. But, doesn't assume, as physicians in the past have done, (I retired from the medical career, so I automatically "know all this stuff"). Thank you, Dr. Douek & office staff for a positive encounter.

I love Dr. Douek! After being her patient at the Astoria clinic, I didn’t hesitate to drive to her St. Vincent office. I’ve recommended her to people when I’ve been asked. She tells it like it is but with compassion and is firm when needed because she cares and is passionate about her patients.

Dr. Douek is a delight as a person and as a doctor. She treats me with respect and professionalism. She asks good questions and listens to what I have to say. I have complete confidence in her knowledge as a physician. Believe it or not, I actually look forward to and enjoy each appointment with her, which currently is twice a year. I always leave her office feeling happy, more positive than when I arrived, and more knowledgeable about my medical situation.

Most caring and highly qualified physician I ever had. I have seen her for 10 years now and have experienced outstanding care! I trust her completely in managing my care and health needs. She always reviews your tests ahead of time so she has time to explain everything to you at your appointment.

Dr.Douek has been my doctor for many years. She has always treated me as a real person, not just some file filled with records. Any time I needed something out of the ordinary, she has always done her best to answer any and all requests. She is very attentive and I never feel rushed during my appointments. I highly recommend her!
