Dr. Karachi was warm and quick to identify issues with my shoulder and hip. He was not pushy and gave me my options in a concise and meaningful manner. I felt confident in his knowledge and precision of observation.

Didn't actually see doctor until 2nd visit - saw his staff who are quite nice and helpful. Dr. spent very few minutes with me and ignored most of what I was telling him. It felt like since my situation wasn't a surgical situation that he was done...no further advice, no empathy, just please go to another doctor for help. Sincerely frustrating after going through hoops of getting appointment, doing tests, being hopeful for some relief, etc... Dr.'s bedside manner needs work!

Dr. Karsch in my opinion is a wonderful physician. I had to have both shoulders operated on. After surgery and physical therapy both of my shoulders we're fine no more pain

Dr.Karsh was the 3rd orthopedic i had been to but the first one to find out what was wrong with my knee. He is a doctor who is about his patients. I will recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Karsch and his staff go to great lengths to make the overall experience very positive. His attention to detail and non-rush demeanor really put you in good hands. The wait in the exam room can be a little longer than others, but it is totally worth the wait because you have his undivided attention. I have and will be recommending him to family and friends in the future, without any hesitation.

Dr.Karsch is a great orthopedic !! He is very thorough with his examination.( He takes time with his patients, you will not feel rushed like a herd of cattle) You will get the same attention when its your turn. Over the years i have had knee injections,recently Dr.K injected my knee, shoulder and wrist. I must say that his injections are almost painless.. he knows what he is doing!! ( My experience ) I am proud to say he is my orthopedic !! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

I went to Dr. Karsch because I thought I had injured my ankle. I was seen within a day of calling. The staff was very friendly and easy to talk to. Dr. Karsch listen to my concerns and even though I did not know how I hurt myself, he ordered an xray. After showing me the xray and explaining how and why it eliminated injury and arthritis. He then eliminated a sprain. He recommended I see a vascular surgeon and it was the right call. Now I can walk and feel I owe it to his knowledge. Thx

I would and have recommended Dr Karsch to my friends and family. He is a very good physician. He gives options for treatment and will not operate on someone when it's not needed.
