Dr Karl creat d a harsh punitive atmosphere in her clinic. While she seemed reasonably competent, I thought she lacked compassion.,

Dr. Karl is very thorough, but has the worst bed side manner. She is not personable or friendly. If you are looking for a doctor that treats you like a person and not your condition, than Dr. Karl is definitely not the doctor for you. The only reason why I saw Dr. Karl was because I didn't have to wait six months to get in to see her. I regret not being patient and going with another doctor everyday. If you are seeking a personable doctor don't select Dr. Karl!
