Dr Karr was very informative but I did not care for how fast he was in and out at the appointment. Also the nurse in the surgery scheduling was a waste of time, could not answer any questions and I feel like she just wanted to hurry us out.

Dr Karr and I have had several years together, he was the doctor who "fixed" what damage another doctor had done. He never gave up, continued to learn what he would need to make me able to resume a normal life. I would recommend Dr. Karr 100%. He is one of the best foot doctors in the country.

I have only been in contact with Dr Karr a total of 3 times. He was so genuine every time. Very very good surgeon. Would definitely see him again for any issues that arise with my feet or ankles
