Spent 10 minutes talking about himself and then cut the appointment off when I was explaining my symptoms because he claims to only have 15 minutes per patient. Then, falsely charged me a missed appointment fee and refused to take it off the bill.

My first visit I had the breathing test with nurse practitioner Belinda and she told me that I had COPD (moderate) I had an MRI on on my chest came back good. I went today and had a more extensive breathing test with a respiratory therapist (Solomon) who was so awesome and not rushing me like the first visit. Low and behold I do not have COPD and my lungs are fine. I am truly upset because this diagnosis is on my medical record and now I have to fight to get it off. Very disappointed and Dr. Kariya did not apologize for the error and was very nonchalant about the whole ordeal

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.
