Karandish is such a terrible doctor that I don’t know how he keeps his medical license. He is arrogant & rude. He has a medical scribe, assistant, & a student following him so the examining room is full. He seems to love having all eyes on him. He makes a commotion as he barks out orders to the patient & his staff. Don’t ask questions because he becomes snide & sarcastic. His examination of the patient is so rushed that it would be impossible for him to gather any information. He incorrectly diagnosed me. Part of his business is anti-aging & most of the visit consists of him pushing procedures & vitamins that promotes a youthful look. This made me feel ugly for having signs of aging. On 3 different visits & he shamed employees for making minor errors. I have a new doctor now. I recommend you not waste your time & money seeing this greedy, poor excuse of a doctor. Shame on you, Dr. Patel, for selling your practice to Karandish, leaving your loyal patients scrambling for a good doctor.

Usually he was very nice to me. But as the clinic got larger he kept forgetting to give me the creams and prescriptions that I needed at all. He refused to give me the correct dose on my blood pressure medicine so I am switching Dr.'s. I need my blood pressure medicine for my kidney disfunction so I had to override him and call my kidney Dr. who gladly gave me the correct prescription. Thumb Butte Medical Center is fired! Bad Dr.s.

Dr. Kaveh Karandish is overbearing, paternalistic, egotistical, loud, a homophobe, and a jerk. I would never be seen by him again. He is nowhere near as good as Dr. Askari. I don't recommend anyone take Dr. Karandish as their doctor.

Dr K. listens to me and is concerned and genuine. I am glad to have him as a care partner. The staff is friendly and caring. I like that they have a lab onsite.

I do not recommend Dr. Karandish! This doctor is rude and belittling. He does not listen nor care about what you have to say. This was by far the worst experience I've ever had with any doctor. He treated my spouse and I like we had dementia and were too stupid to make decisions for ourselves. He acted like a know-it-all and constantly interupted us when we spoke. BEWARE! This doctor is dangerous! He does what he wants and as a patient, you have no say in the matter. We will not be returning.

DO NOT see Karandish!! Zero respect for patients! Refused to refill my rx I've been taking for 6 years, said he didn't agree with Askari's dosage. He gave me 10 pills instead of the usual 30 to last me a MONTH. Accused me of drug seeking, interrupted me every time I talked, he saw me for less than 3 minutes! He stood in the open doorway, he loudly reprimanded me in front of my daughter when I told him that 10 pills won't last me a month. Never been treated this way! Why is he working there?

I did not feel as I was treated as a family member. During my initial visit, he did not touch any part of my body. His PA did that. When I had my follow up visit, he still did not touch me. I asked about a breast exam since it was my annual visit. No he does not do that and he ordered a mammogram so didn't feel it was necessary. He did not originally order a urinalysis and I had to request it. I felt he had one foot out the door the entire time. He did not meet my expectations.

I went to see Dr. Karandish; had to wait for over an hour; staff seemed unconcerned; doctor was brusk and in a rush to get to the next patient; I felt like a nuisance to the doctor; doctor dismissive and uncaring. I would not visit this doctor again. I would not recommend this doctor.

After my 75 minute wait, Dr. Karandish spent 5-10 minutes on my annual physical. He did not listen, but instead chose to talk about himself. However, he did find time to imply that I was using recreational drugs, criticize two of his assistants and display a lack of bedside manner. Dr. Karandish coded my annual physical incorrectly, surreptitiously ran a urine toxicology - then required a second. This is a man with dollar signs in his eyes. He is profoundly if not criminally incompetent.

Front office staff recommended Dr. Karandish. Said my #1 request is that he listen to me and they assured me he would. I waited nearly 40 minutes to see him. He rushed in with his assistant trailing after him. He talked over me, did not let me finish my sentences, and assumed, rather that listened. I felt unheard and VERY rushed. He was outta there in less than 10 min. I'm supposed to get blood work done, and I don't want to go back for concern he will not take the time to explain results. BAD!

Dr Karandish has been my PCP for over a year. I don't understand why he has negative reviews. He is kind and listens well, and he really takes the time to educate his patients. It is also really nice that I can schedule an appointment only a few days out. My previous PCP would be so booked I'd have to wait weeks for an appointment. His office staff are fantastic as well, this is a very busy office but I have never waited longer than 15 minutes to be seen and most visits I am seen within 5.

Dr. Karandish is quite personable, accessible and knowledgeable. He has quickly responded to my direct communications with him. Another doctor, who has since left the practice, was equally helpful when I needed something. The practice does have problems with the office staff. They have been rude, non-responsive to calls and outright neglectful of their responsibilities. It seems to be across the board, so seems to be to be a systemic problem with training and communication.
