Patient Comments (5)

Dr. Karowe was very professional and thorough with great beside manner. I have a history of colon cancer in my family and he seemed very concerned and wanted to learn more about it. The follow up was excellent and his team was great as well. I would highly recommend him.

Fast to diagnose and slow to follow up. Dr. Karowe diagnosed me with Ulcerative Colitis but after further testing outside of his office it turned out to be Ecoli infection which can cause ulcerations.
