He’s the most caring doctor I’ve ever met, he goes out of his way to help his patients, way out, he calls his patients to tell them their surgery results, not his secretary, he does it, and gives u his opinion and suggestions and then asks u what u want to do. He is just great.

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.
