Dr Karas has been the best diabetic doctor i have been to. I have had diabetes for over 20 years and seen a lot of doctors. My a1c has never been below 7.5 after my first appointment she switch my medicine and my next A1C was 6.9! very happy with my experience with her and she is very easy to talk to and I have never felt rushed through my time with her she listens and explains things to me in a way I understand. I feel very lucky to have found her and have her as my doctor.
