My visit to Dr. Karri was great. My lab work was done on time and then my scheduled appointment was on time as well. Dr. Karri is very through in her examination and is extremely concerned about your overall health. Everything worked like a well oiled machine but with a very personal touch. I highly recommend Dr. Karri.

I have been a patient of Dr. Karri for 15 years and have always been treated with respect and concern for my condition. She always takes the necessary time to make sure everything has been covered and I understand what has been explained to me. If it was not for the treatment plan she developed for me, and continues to do so, I would not have the quality of life I now enjoy.

I have been a patient with Dr Karri for about three years since moving here from northern Virginia. She is the best! She listens to you and takes time to explain your test results and discuss your treatment with you. I always feel comfortable and well cared for. Her staff are the best as well. If you need a Hematologist, I highly recommend Dr. Karri.

Every visit is great and on time. Dr.. Karri takes time with me in reporting my lab and CT results. She makes sure I understand my status and progress as well as anticipated future progress. She allows my adult child/children to attend appointments so they too can hear my physical situation. She answers their questions as well as mine. She keeps my other medical treatment professionals informed of my medical situation. Very professional and I recommend her without any reservation.
