Dr. Karp did an excellent job on my recent breast reduction, the results are fantastic! Everything went very smoothly and he and his team were attentive and responsive. I had no issues of any kind with the operation, his office or staff. I wouldn't hestitate to go back to him.

Dr. Karp recently performed direct-implant reconstruction at the time of my bilateral mastectomy. There was no problem or infection of any kind in the surgery's aftermath, and I healed remarkably quickly. Even at four weeks post op the reconstructed breasts look great. Beyond his indisputable expertise, Dr. Karp has a wonderfully kind and engaging manner. He's low-key but very friendly, with a wry sense of humor and an obvious concern for his patients as people. Highest recommendation.

Dr. Nolan Karp is an excellent surgeon who is compassionate and cares about his patients. He performed a flap breast reconstruction on me and did an excellent job. He and his physician's assistant Brooke took the time to explain the procedure, and answer all my questions, and make me feel at ease before and after surgery. He has a great beside manner and is always smiling. He even takes the time to call his patients the day before surgery to check on you. All of his staff do a great job.

I had a mastectomy on my left breast last September, my second bout of breast cancer. I had my final surgery in January. Dr. Karp was a good surgeon and reconstructed my breast like the old one. All through out my healing, I had no pain......... His staff totally made me feel at home thru the process.

Dr. Karp performed my breast reduction October 20, 2017. I recently had my final post op appointment, and I can honestly say this surgery has changed my life. I went from 34I to approximately 34D/DD. My scars have healed splendidly, and all of my physical ailments associated with my large breasts have all but disappeared (back/shoulder/neck pain, rashes and scarring from bras, headaches). Dr. Karp and his staff are topnotch, and made this experience seamless and stress-free. I have zero regrets.

Disaster. Screwed up my breast reduction. More than a year later, I am virtually the same size I was before the surgery. He just changed the shape, not the size. Still huge and uncomfortable with all the same issues. My complaints repeatedly fell on deaf ears. He did nothing to rectify the situation. Colossal disappointment.
