One of the best physicians I have ever met. He performed spinal fusion for my daughter's extreme scoliosis. He is warm, detailed, dedicated, and without ego -- and has the personality to win trust from kids.

We have had a wonderful experience with Dr Karlin. My daughter had surgery last summer for scoliosis in her back. It was a long and involved procedure. She has healed nicely. Dr. Karlin is friendly, warm, and professional. I would highly recommend him as a surgeon.
