Worst doctor in the entire world. My grandmother went in for surgery and he read the wrong file and completely performed the wrong surgery. If you want to live don’t go to him.

I had stage one melanoma skin cancer. This was my first experience with anything like this. Dr. Karpah and his entire staff was amazing. He is patient, explains everything and through his staff gets back to you very quickly. He is so knowledgeable, easy spoken and gets you through the ordeal very easily. He has the best bed side manner I have ever seen in a doctor. His staff is wonderful!!! I was lucky to have Dr. Karpah recommended to me. He is so respected &prestigious and so down to earth.

Dr. Karpeh was my surgeon for colon cancer. He is the best surgeon I have ever had. He was very patient when I asked questions; he's very personable; and he really cares about his patients. I definitely highly recommend him!!! And his staff is great, especially Paula & the lady who takes your blood pressure (I don't remember her name.). The lady who makes your appointments is also very personable.

I had end stage Achalasia back in 2010. Dr. Karpeh performed an esophagectomy on me and after 5 and 1/2 years and a laundry list of post surgery complications I'm able to eat without incident and I've gained back 40 pounds of the 80 I lost. Dr. Karpeh saved my life.
