Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Karman "My greatest tool is listening to my patients. They typically provide me with the clues necessary to diagnose and cure disease. I have retired from the Critical Care venue to focus on the new plague of Sleep disorders. My Goal is to provide the education and direction to irradiate or treat Sleep deprivation, Shift Worker Syndrome, Sleep Apnea, etc... I feel the greatest and most worthy challenge of our time in medicine is to instill the attributes of enough "normal" sleep to all."

I lucked out when I found Dr. Karman several years ago to treat my sleep apnea. He's got a great "bedside manner", i.e. he puts you at ease with his cheerful attitude and is extremely knowledgeable.
