Patient Comments (4)
Albany, NY |
I was recommended to her via my Cardiologist. He was gushing over his patients feedback about her. I take 6 medications and he said he would trust her with his own mother. My experience with Dr.K was outstanding. She spent 30 minutes of room time and addressed all my concerns. She has a pleasant demeanor and her staff have a great rapport with her. I have visited the office 3 times without any complaints. A great "old school" doctor.

DR Karnstedt listens and empathizes over whatever is bothering you. After just a few visits she remembers who you are and welcomes you at each visit more as friend than a "customer". After a number of years as a patient I have found she does not make impossible promises but will do her very best to find an answer your problem.

Dr. Karnstedt spends a lot of time listening and answering questions. She even writes down information for the patient to look up for more information.The office staff is very kind and professional also.

I recently moved to the area and found Dr. Karnstedt online. I called their office to schedule an appointment and no one answered the phone. I called 4 times yesterday, left a voicemail and no one called me back. I called again today and no one answered yet again. I will definitely be looking for another doctor's office. I just needed an immunization for work, I can't imagine if I was actually sick and needed to be seen ASAP.
