    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.
