Referral sent to this on March 31, 2019. Called the office on April 1or 2nd left a message.rec’d call from Eric the scheduler on April 4 th. She would give the referral to the doctor to review, and they will call me and schedule my appointment. That never happened, I went on line and scheduled my own appointment which should have been on June11,2019. Well the referral was given to the doctor she called me and I told her that she had the referral so I fax it to her on Tuesday called the office spoke with the black lady at the counter, received a call Tuesday evening they did not get the referral. I call on Wednesday morning drop the referrals of at the front counter Erica said I will call you in about one hour. She did she knew I did not believe what she said to me. There were no justification for nothing that happened. Called the doctor that sent the referral she called and said that one of the office managers will. Intact me or her. Have not heard from anyone, before Ericka hung.

I have been seeing Dr Karavan since I had a heart attack in July of 2016. I would recommend him highly and would be devastated if he retired! My husband also used him for over 10 years and lived him.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Karavan for about 3-4 years now and am extremely pleased with him and his staff. The front personnel are very nice and most accommodating. Scheduling is always easy whether it’s for annual appointments or for an emergent issue. Limited waiting time and nice waiting area.

Dr. KARAVAN is an outstanding Cardiologist. He has identified and monitoried my cardio weaknesses throught the years, and when it came time to repair those weaknesses, he reacted swiftly for a very successful repair. If you are religious and believe in faith like I do. Then Dr. KARAVAN is one of God's angels. Because of Dr. KARAVAN my healthy lifestyle would not exist without his astonishing work, and his knowledge and skills as a cardiologist. I am blessed to have to have as my cardiologist.

I have been patient of Dr. Karavan for many years and would highly recommend him to others looking for a cardiac physician. He always takes time to talk to me and explain anything I need to know patiently and thoroughly. He really seems to care about his patients, and if I ever have any concerns he will order testing or advice. The entire staff is always friendly and efficient.

My experience with Dr. Karavan has been positive from my very first visit. The moment you walk in the door you know that your concerns are important to them. The office staff is extremely helpful in scheduling appointments around my schedule and they are always courteous and friendly. Dr Karavan does a great job of listening to your concerns and then taking the time to explain the conditions and solutions in a manner that is understandable. I wouldn't go anywhere else and Doc gets a 5 star*****
