What People Say About Kara Scanlan, ARNP

Kara is an exceptional care provider. He intelligence and high level of knowledge continues to amaze me. In the rare instance when she does not know the answer to your questions, she finds out. Her response to personal questions and questions through My Chart is always prompt. I look forward the my appointments due to her warmth and positive attitude. I hope more doctors will follow her example. We need this type of care.

Kara is evil. I am a victim of the Green River killer and was abducted at age 13 by four men who were going to kill me when they finished. I told Kara I have PTSD and CTE from abuse and sometimes things I say come across wrong ect. One day I was late for an appointment and called to see if she could still see me and the receptionist thought I was rude or something. So a few minutes later Kara calls me and says ' jennifer you are a horrible person and you deserve everything that has ever happened

Kara is awesome! I've seen her for about 4 and a half years. She goes above and beyond to help. No matter what it is. And she will find out what you need. She spends time and listens. Gives feedback and genuinely cares. A no nonsense person who gets the job done! She puts up with me, she's gotta be good! No wonder she's in high demand! I'd definitely recommend her and have.
