Dr Karp treated our young daughter with such respect and care. He explains everything he was doing prior to starting, and he ordered an ultrasound to be certain what was causing her pain. He is so calm, but knowledgeable and factual. He gave us hope during during a horrible situation that was unresolved. He accurately determined what was wrong, operated the same day, and has showered her with compliments. He undoubtedly receives five stars from our family!

Dr. Karp is an excellent surgeon with a kind and caring bed side manner. He takes time out of his busy schedule to ensure that his patients get the attention and care they need. We are grateful that our son's surgery went better than anticipated and his recovery is quicker than expected. My family is truly grateful to Dr. Karp and have told family and friends about our wonderful experience with him and his support staff.
