Dr.Kariya didnt tell my father to get a CT chest scan for likely returned cancer diagnosis, though this was the recommendation in a related CT report held by Dr. Kariya. Two years were lost. Though stage 4 by this time, my father survived another two, living a vibrant life. While the Dept of Health sent an Advisory Letter, one would think his license should have been pulled. Lots of pulmonologists in Montgomery County, go to an ethical one.

Dr. Kariya, informed me about some worrisome scans as soon as he received the results, a few weeks before my visit. I like to know with a quick call or message ahead of time and not wait for weeks or days before my visit. I really appreciate the consideration given by Dr. Kariya to the patient’s state of mind.
