Easy to talk to Explained so I could understand my options I've moved to Carmel and going to make the drive to see Dr Karas
in Fort Wayne, IN |
This man is one of the most thorough doctors I have ever had. He is kind, caring, and personable. Too bad more doctors aren't like him. Too bad people in general aren't more like him. Any negatives or less then stellar ratings are due to how busy he and the entire office is.

Dr. Karas usually runs late with his appointments, but he's worth the wait. He spends time with me and really listens to me and what I want for my health. He helps me set reasonable goals and gives me tools to achieve them. I highly recommend him; he's a wonderful doctor.
