I love Dr. Karon. She made me feel very comfortable and was able to get my endometriosis that a previous doctor didn't and also Cysts that either other doctors ignored or just didn't care about.

Labiaplasty done and terrible experience. Ended up having to see another surgeon 3 weeks afterwards. Terrible time getting any communication with her during my healing period. Both my suture lines opened and terrible pain for 5 weeks. They blew it off as if its normal part of recovery. I would not let this lady spay my dog even. Absolutely terrible. Labiaplasty is definitely not her calling.

At 34 years old u would not think to hear words like hormones or bladder leakage but after a Hysterectomy at age 28 (by another doctor) I did. I was a lost hormonal mess who thought this would be my life. But then there was Dr. Karon she did bladder lift on me in September 2015 after having problems for 3-4 years with leaking (which was a major embarrassment) with a robot (yes I said robot) she fixed my hormones, my bladder, she is amazing! I now feel like how a 34 year old should feel!

I was given a Reclast infusion. No warning of side effects by the Dr. My symptoms were severe & I am still experiencing pain 12 days out. I phoned Dr. Karon & was told "I've never had a patient have a negative reaction." "Call an ambulance you are having a heart attack." I not only went to Urgent care but also the hospital ER Dr. Both told me it's the Reclast. Symptoms: abdominal pain, low blood pressure, chills, fever, extreme hand and knee pain, visual disturbances. No Dr follow up.

i came to her office an hour early for my appointment. I was new patient and had to fill out paperwork. I sat for 3 hours waiting to be called in after i turned in my paperwork, They kept taking other patients in front of me. i would go to desk and ask if they forgot me? For 3 hours they told me i was next. they took my co pay and charged me even though i walked out finally. t hey told my referring physcian i never showed up. I wouldnt recommend her for any reason.
