What People Say About Dr. Mardi Karin, MD

Dr Karin is an excellent doctor who truly cares about her patients. She clearly explained all my options and what to expect. I was told by friends that the injection of the radioactive substance to locate the lymph nodes before surgery was the worst part of the entire surgery. Dr Karin personally did this injection. She talked me through the process and had me breathe through it. I have to say it was not painful and was over with very quickly. She is amazing!

I was referred to Dr. Karin after being diagnosed with lobular carcinoma in March 2016. Needless to say, I walked in terrified. I can't say enough good things about the treatment I received from Dr. Karin and her staff at Stanford Cancer Center Southbay. Over the last year and a half, I have been treated with kindness, compassion and honesty. She performed my mastectomy and worked with Dr Nazareli, the plastic surgeon, and referred me to my oncologist. It's SO helpful that it's all in one place!
