in Lafayette, LA |
Doctor Karim is very caring he listen to every thing I said did thorough examination on me and give the right treatment for my headache and seizure I strongly recommend him to ramy body
in La |
Horrible experience! He was more interested in telling me how I feel or shouldn't feel than listening to me and what was going on. He was VERY rude! Felt as though he was uninterested in what my needs were and was just interested in his script pad! Went there to find out what is wrong with me to just be handed a script with more drugs that by the way DO NOT WORK! Maybe he should take time and actually listen to the patient instead of making his own assumption of what their needs are!

in Lafayette, LA |

in Lake Charles |
He was very disrespectful and treat me like I was less than him. I will not recommend him to anyone. Needs to learn how to treat other and needs to care for others. Very disappointed
Lafayette, LA |
My grandmother was admitted in the hospital at LGMC and this doctor was on call! I would NOT recommend this doctor to my worse enemy on their death bed! He has the worse bedside manners & answered his phone...not once..but thrice while "giving recommendations!" Then, he didn't even have the common courtesy to say excuse me! He never touched my grandmother neither did he seem one bit concerned! He also came into the room not knowing what was going on & asked very irrelevant questions! 0 stars!!
Lafayette, La |
We were in LGMC for an emergency situation. He has absolutely the worse bedside manners and did not interact with the patient once. I wouldnt recommend him to my enemy, he is horrible.
Lafayette, LA |
POOORRRRR bedside manners and very disrespectful. Made my sick grandma feel less than a human with his arrogant attitude.
Lafayette, LA |
Dr. was great, very patient and friendly. Staff on the other hand, very rude. Person who answers the phone calls on the other hand, extremely rude! When asked why they would not release my records to another physician, as I was upset to hear by my physician this office would not release my records, she could not professionally handle the conversation and hung up on me!!! Very unprofessional!
in Kaplan, LA |
