Cold and uncaring to my concerns. Answered one of my questions as he was walking out of exam door. Also had 1 1/2 hour wait.

I had MOHS surgery on my nose and they had to go so far down to my cartridge that it could not be stitched. I went to Dr. Karen and he did surgery to fix my left side of nose. The results were phenomenal. When he did the forehead flap to my nose I was so worried about how it looked but he assured me that it would look great . I then had second surgery and he was right. I'm so grateful that he was able to fix it and what a wonderful job he did. I would definitely recommend him.

I would not recomend Dr. KAREN. I have received fillers before and always went to the Washington D.C. area and received good care but was tired of spending half of my day traveling. A friend told me about dr.karen so i thought i would try him, it was a 20m drive instead of over an hr. I went the first wk for botox then the following wk for fillers. I was not happy with the fillers he either didn't administrator the correct amount for what i paid for or he administrated them too low.
We want every patient to look as good as they feel and believe that honest feedback during the appointment can greatly influence the success of the treatment. We strive to comprehensively inform patients about the procedure and check in every step of the way to assure everything is going as expected. However, if there is ever dissatisfaction with results we ask patients to reach out to us so that we may discuss the concern and work together to find a solution.

I had an excellent experience today. The office staff is so friendly and they worked me in right away and even went ahead and did a procedure for me that they could have made me wait until next week to schedule but they didn't. They were very professional and the dr. was nice and very knowledgeable and friendly and made me feel comfortable. I will recommend this place to anyone!
