About 23 years ago I suffered from an undiagnosed ailment that caused me to lose weight,not sleep and which made breathing and exertion close to impossible. After a year of suffering and a fifty pound weight loss I was sent to a pulmonary specialist. In 2 visits Dr. Karlin had me diagnosed,treated and thankfully cured of sarcoidosis. He was knowledgeable, funny,comforting and reassuring. To this day it is the best medical experience i have ever had. Great doctor,greater human. C. Stukes Phila,Pa.
