I enjoy going to see Dr. Karshner. I know that he will tell me exactly what I need to hear and he answers my questions even if I've asked them 3 times already. His staff is very friendly and efficient. I will recommend him to others and I will use him again if the need arises.

My experience with this doctor was very unpleasant. He was very rude, unsympathetic, and lacked the manners it takes to relate to a patient and their health problems. The bed side manner he obtains makes you feel more victimized than helped. I would not recommend sending my pets to see this...more
