What People Say About Dr. Michael Karasik, MD

I had an endoscopic ultrasound with biopsy/aspiration a few weeks ago. He is a very skilled and knowledgable doctor. This is my 6th procedure with Dr. Karasik and as long as I need to have this procedure done he will be the doctor I go to. I have cysts on my pancreas, scary yes but he has the skills to stay on top of it. He will clearly explain everything to you and give you sound advice. I feel blessed to have him as my doctor.

I brought my mother to Dr. Karasik. Dr. Karasik made me cry when he said the procedure i wanted to do could kill her. Well, she passed this morning, February 10, 2016. Dr. Karasik to do ERCP on January 12, 2016 scheduled in December.I brought my mom for preliminary bloodwork,and on January 11th 4:30 pm, the procedure was cancelled b/c Hrtford Hospital did not have the stent.Talk about waiting last minute.ERCP never done and a cascading of health problems began.
