Maria Karas is an extraordinary physician, one who combines outstanding diagnostic skills with outstanding people skills -to me, both are of equal importance. She “knows her stuff”, really hears you, has time to explain, brainstorm and, in my case, come up both with an accurate diagnosis and plan of future action. I can’t thank her enough for returning me to an active life.

The visit was most informative. I got all of the information that I was seeking and more. Dr. Karas is a very pleasant woman who made me feel very comfortable in her presence. Our discussions were in language that I could understand. I didn’t have to go home and google anything. There is something very unique about the people who work for NYP.

She is a great doctor and I feel lucky to have her as my doctor. She was very clear in explaining my condition and even drew a diagram to make sure I was understanding what she was explaining. She made me feel very comfortable. She did not rush through my examination or discussion. She is very personable.
