What People Say About Dr. Stephen Karp, MD
Reply
I found Dr Karp to be a professional, thorough, kind, informative physician. He answered my questions, allayed my fears and was straight forward with my treatment needs. I am now a breast cancer survivor because of his surgical expertise and the care I received at Lahey Clinic.

I met Dr. Karp in 1994, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. This month of October 2017, there are 23 years since he saved my life. I don't have enough words to express my gratitude to this gentle and highly specialized doctor. I am a nurse in ICU in Ottawa, Canada, dealing all my life with medical doctors, and being able to compare and appreciate good care. I would recommend Dr. Karp in a heart beat to anyone.
