I have been seeing Dr. Karas for 3 or 4 years now. He is always prepared. He knows how to talk to his patients. He is attentive. He talks to you, not at you. He always leaves time for questions that I have. I admire and trust this doctor. The only thing that I do not like is that I can now only see Dr. Karas on every second visit. Apparently there is some sort of rotation that was implemented where I have to see a different doctor on those alternate years.

every thing was fine until this January when i was informed i had to see the pa from now on and i asked to be rescheduled so i could see the Dr himself because i was just out of viera hospital with a fib and felt safer seeing him i was refused and told that is not the way it is done anymore has it really gotten to the point that health first is putting money before safety of its patience i think so all they want is to schedul as many patients as they can so as to fill there pockets
