Dr. Karman's Care Philosophy

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 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.

I've been seeing Dr. Karman for several years now and I'm extremely pleased with the care I've received from him. He has an excellent bedside manner, i.e. he communicates well to me as his patient. He also has a friendly disposition and impresses me with his knowledge and observations. Additionally, he's acted as a client advocate for me in insuring I receive good treatment from the medical vendor who supplies me with C-PAP supplies. I highly recommend him and give him five stars!
