About Me

For us, it is a privilege to take care of patient, whom we see as our own family members. When the patients trust us we take the burden and obligation of making the best possible decision in treating them based on our years of experience and the most up-to-date techniques. We don't see medicine as a business but as a very unique encounter and relationship between the doctor and the patient.

My experience with Dr Karayan was mixed. As a surgeon who genuinely cares about his patients and wants the best care for them, I believe he is wonderful. His surgery skills are top notch. His communication skills and bedside manner are practically non-existent. His staff are totally unqualified to deal with patients. However, if I ever need surgery again I would hope he is still available. I am 100% satisfied with the results of my total hip replacement and would recommend him to anyone.

Dr.Karayan and his staff were awesome today. They took care of my mother with such great care and professionalism, I am grateful for all their help. I don’t usually give reviews, because I find most services these days substandard. But the doctor was so kind to my mother And helpful to her situation that were forever grateful. Wishing him and his staff happy holidays.
