    Dr. Karnam saved my life. I would have died of cancer before 40 without him. He is brilliant, kind and attentive - especially considering his time constraints. He can get more done in one visit than most physicians can get done in a month of visits. Know that seeing him and following his advice will improve your health.

    He barely listened to my symptoms and went straight to recommending an endoscopy. This was very costly for me to do because of needing to meet my deductible first. Nothing turned up in the endoscopy results and there were no other answers provided to me. I'm still having digestive issues and feel like I was just taken advantage of by going straight to a costly procedure.
