Los Gatos Ca |
Dr Karin is nice and professional however the office staff is just horrible. They are rude, does not respect your time and unpleasant in general. They asked me to come 50!!!!! Minutes before my appointment to fill out new patient paperwork that I was done in 10 minuets. When I asked them why did they ask me to come 50 minuets before they said:”this is how the Doctor like it”. Overoll unpleasantness waiting in the waiting room. I will only return if I’ll have no other choice.

The office staff seem to LOVE having a room full of irritated people waiting waiting waiting. They seem to get some evil glee out of it. You have to fill out insurance info in hand writing, rather thanthem copy your card like every other Dr. The 3 forms ask the same questions over and again. Mean, rude, evil. Their latest is for you to come in 1/2 hour "early" to your appointment. Not worth it, and Rom should be ashamed of the way his staff treat people.
