Beverly Hills, California |
Dr Karlan could not have been more caring. He was in contact with me on a daily basis both before and after my surgery, making sure I was comfortable with my course of treatment and then checking on me and any concerns I might have post op. He was very clear answering any question I might have had even calling me Sunday evening, three days after surgery.

My experience of being treated by Dr. Karlan could not have been more pleasant. He thoroughly explained all treatment options, listened to me and supported my decision fully, and then lightened the medical experience with humor and care. Both the doctor and his team were efficient and timely.

Dr. Karlan was kind, caring and knowledgable. If you are facing a scary diagnosis, you will appreciate having him at your side.
