Horrible. Dr. Karpf recommended harmful therapies and dropped us as clients. She tore our family apart and we paid her for it.

Dr. Karpf has been my daughters psychiatrist for over 10 years. Treating a pre-teen patient and now as a young adult patient, requires flexibility and vast knowledge to be able to pivot at different times. Dr Karpf has navigated us through everything from typical to crisis situations. She is accesible and patient and calm. No ego here.

Dr. Karpf is incredible. She takes time to listen to you and offer incredible guidance. She responds very quickly to questions/concerns in between appointments. I am very picky about my doctors and I highly recommend her. She has transformed my life for the better!

Dr. Karpf is one of the most caring and compassionate doctors I have ever met. She is wonderful with my son and he absolutely loves her. She returns calls promptly, is extremely knowledgeable and is very interested in our concerns. We recently had an issue where my son was having a problem and needed additional medication and she called us daily to check on him. I have taken my son to see many physicians and she is by far one of the best.

Dr. Karpf is absolutely amazing. I am bewildered about the poor subjective opinions of the suffering and frustrated few. She is seriously stellar. Been around before I found her, and the resultant is that I'll never go elsewhere. -ADHD Engineer.

Extremely annoying. Talks over you and won't even let you finish your sentence, she seems to know you better than you know yourself and she continues to ask the same questions. She's extremely hyper and never stops talking to the point that you feel attacked. Wouldn't trust her to take care of a fish, let alone my mental health

The EXACT SAME QUESTIONS ARE ASKED OVER And OVER AGAIN during the same session ABSOLUTELY NO RETENTION from one appointment to the next even after years of being a patient! Apparently doesn't read notes before hand! Too impatient to listen. Asked if a medication I had tried only one dose of over seven years ago was still working well! I've suffered this as well as belittling comments way too long. Horrible! I'm Finally DONE!!!

Dr Karpf has been treating my grandson for approx 2 years. SHe is a skilled diagnostician who was able to diagnose my grandson immediately. He is doing great in school now thanks to her commitment to finding the right meds that work for him. His self esteem has improved because he is not being disciplined all the time. I am very grateful to have Dr K in his life.

The single WORST psychiatrist I have ever had the displeasure of going to. Due to the lack of adolescent psychiatrists under my insurance, I was forced to see her. She would verbally attack me and tell me that I wasn't trying to deal with my condition. She also would constantly compare me to her children, who are around my age. She would mock me and I would often leave her office feeling worse than I did when I went in. I wouldn't recommend her to anyone.

I wouldn't recommend this doctor to anyone, especially if you are looking for a doctor for your child. I actually had to make the decision to dismiss her as my doctor when I was in middle school because she wasn't helping me AT ALL. She wouldn't listen to me and my concerns. And she constantly spoke of her on children in comparison to me (we are around the same age). Im 24 now and I still consider her the WORST psychiatrist I have ever been to.
