I would absolutely recommend Dr. Karna to any of our family and friends. She takes the time to answer my questions, her staff are friendly as well, and she is thorough during exams. Whenever I needed her or Dr. Chitwood paged during off hours, they were always kind, understanding, and took the time to tell me what I needed to do for my baby while she was ill.

Dr. Karna would (inaccurately) finish my sentences for me. She was standing in the doorway trying to leave before I had asked a single question. I asked one anyway. After a curt answer I didn't ask any more. As a first time mom I am in need of help and expertise. She did not even try to be friendly to my baby (she was very afraid of her) and seemed annoyed when I wanted to take a moment to calm her down. Overall, I found her to be impatient and uncaring. I will not make the mistake of returning.

Dr. Karna is the an excellent pediatrician. She always enters the room with her bubbly personality and greets the children with a smile. She takes the time to talk with the children before the exam to make them feel comfortable. She is very gentle and kind, we call her the baby whisperer. Whenever we have a question she never makes you feel stupid and answers it to the best of her ability. I would recommend to anyone looking for a pediatrician.

AMAZING doctor. She takes time to listen and talk to you about your concerns. She never makes you feel like you are asking a dumb question. She loves her job and it shows! I feel truly blessed to have her care for my daughter. I would recommend her to the closest friend/family member. I wish all doctors were like her!
