Dr. Karman and his staff were excellent with my teenaged son. They listened to his concerns, explained everything fully (clarified some misconceptions and provided great new information), and are taking steps to manage his care and adjust his treatment so that it works for him. Such a change from my son's previous healthcare providers! Many thanks to everyone at this office for their professionalism and care for patients.

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. I occasionally drive a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) and he writes an annual letter to my local DOT medical examiner with sleep history results from my C-Pap machine so I can obtain the required DOT medical card. I enjoy my annual visits with him. You will too!

Dr. Karman and his staff are Excellent people to deal with. I believe he truly cares about me and my health needs. He asks questions and never rushes. My appointments are always quick in and out. Their location is totally convenient from a parking standpoint. His staff is top notch in scheduling, interacting with their patients, and all are very pleasant to deal with. I hope this survey asks for me to select a Star Rating for it will be 5 out of 5. Glad to be his patient.

Knew Dr Karman when practicing Pulmonology. He is and was the most compassionate and knowledgeable as they come. We transitioned with him and continue to see him for sleep apnea. I would not recommend anyone else but Dr Karman for Sleep Medicine needs. YOu never feel rushed, he listens, and he KNOWS you. Can't say enough for him.

I have fairly complex sleep issues. Dr. Karman has taken a great deal of time to work with me on these. He is thorough, caring, and compassionate, while also making strong recommendations. I am seeing a lot of improvement after decades of poor sleep. I would recommend him without reservation.
