    Dr. Kari is one of the best Doctors I've ever had. He's very interesting, intelligent and easy to talk to. I've been with Davita Medical Group since inception as CSHP in 1994. I'm glad I selected Dr. Kari as my Primary Care Docter in 2012.

    I think he is a great Dr. He is really trying his best trying to get my cholesterol down with different meds along with other natural vitamins. He has been around for many years. He used to be my daughters pediatrician. I highly recommend him.
