My experience with Dr. Karbowitz and his staff was very bad. I left feeling like it was my fault or that I was faking being sick. He refused to asked his staff to get a copy of my lung function test from my primary doctor to compare with the test I just took. Practically, he called me fat. When I left instead of saying Goodbye he said in Romanian (my native language) “Pofta Mare” meaning good appetite but if don’t eat, it’s very disrespectful, especially when you a few ponds overweight. His staff is also very unfriendly and lazy. Anytime I asked them to correct, or gave me a copy of my test results, or enter the correct data about me in their computer, or something simple as to stamp a note I needed for my work, they either couldn’t find, didn’t know how to access their computers, etc.

Knowledgeable doctor with a great bedside manner. Tends to run a bit late, but it's worth the wait. Had me come back to the hospital on a day when he had no patient hours so we could spend extra time reviewing reports and ct scans.
