I have gone to many neurologists in my area, but I think Dr. Karim has helped me the most. I told him my issues and he quickly knew my diagnosis. He gave me treatment that worked better than what others have prescribed. Overall, he is great and knowledgeable in his profession, and I most certainly recommend him to anyone searching for a neurologist in the area!

check your insurance because if you were overcharged you will not be told and it takes forever to get your money back from the office.

Dr Karim was a semi decent Dr until my insurance changed. Then he turned me away as if he'd never seen me before. He wrote me one last prescription then refused to follow through. Therefore I am unable to fill it. I have been treated as if I am trash. I wouldn't recommend him to my worst enemy. Zero compassion, care or concern for his patients. God bless you and your staff sir!

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!
