Dr Karr is very compassionate and doesn't give up on finding a solution. Conservative, non-surgical methods are tried first, which I appreciated. Today was a post-op visit and although a hectic office day, I was given my share of time. Normally the waiting time to be seen is closer to 15 min. He is an excellent surgeon and I am pain free!

I am so thankful to a Doctor that addresses all your issues and is there to help you in those areas. He listens, takes care of them and does not ignore what you have to say. The wait was longer than usual because of surgery holdups but the office is very efficient.

Complete thorough exam, detailed explanation of care, and quality follow up. Appreciate the genuine concern and time given me.
in HuntingtonHuntington, IN |
Dr. Karr goes above and beyond with spending time and answering any questions. He actually makes sure you have full knowledge of the situation. Dr. Karr explains the process and is there every step of the way to recovery. It is hard to find a doctor that will be there for you, and will not take that extra step. Dr. Karr is that physician that really cares!

Doylestown, PA |
Dr. Karr was nice at first then after the surgery when I'd ask a question he made me feel like I was stupid or something and I should have known the answer. Then at my last appointment I went to when I was having trouble I heard him and the nurse in the hallway talking about me and made it sound like they dredded coming into the room to see me like oh it's her again the one that. ......... the nurse said yea I remember. I felt like crying.

Its been 3 1/2 years since my wife had her Inbone replacement surgery, I just want to let Dr. Karr and his staff Know that you have given my wife her life back. Recovery was slow but encouraging! She used to love to walk and take care of her self but her arthritic ankle put her into a painful depression. I'm happy to tell you she is back to herself again walking 5 to 8 miles a day and has lost over 50lbs feeling and looking great!!! Thanks for all you do: Jeff & Mary Schendel
Medical accident during surgery has left me with a life time of pain.
