The staff is great!! The doctor is socially awkward. Seems as if he lost his interest in helping people. I think he hates his job.

My wait was a little longer, but that was because I was a new patient and needed to fill out several forms. However, once admitted, the nurse asked me several questions that I had clearly already answered on those forms, so it felt a little unnecessary. Dr. Karns himself was a perfectly pleasant man who got straight to the point. He was professional and responsive to my concerns and was quick in his diagnosis and medical advice. I left satisfied.

Extremely disappointed with my office visit. The receptionist was friendly and the wait time in the office was not very long before I was seen. However once inside, the nurse working there at the time seemed like she had no idea what was going on. She was unable to successfully take my blood pressure. After waiting for a while the doctor finally came into the room to see me. He asked me if it was my first time at the office I said yes and he offered me no type of conversation that made me feel welcome. Instead, he pulled out his cell phone and started texting. It wasn't until he received another phone call that he stopped texting. He asked me a few questions about my existing condition. Once he recommended that I get some blood work done, that same nurse came back into to the room and after several attempts, she was unable to draw blood. She made the whole experience very painful than it had to be and I'm a regular blood donor. After she had given up, on the 4th attempt, I said I would rather come back another time and she said that was fine, but she said she was going to talk to the doctor. Once again the doctor came into the room and attempted a 5th time to draw blood and even he was unable to do so. My total time spent there was about 2 hours and this was only for a simple check up. This was my first and last time at the office. I am definitely not coming back. Finding another doctor.

Dr. Karns is extremely knowledgable and I felt very confident with him discussing my medical needs. His experience allows him to identify and analyze whatever symptoms and histories that he sees. Although he tends to mumble, does not make eye contact, and speak quickly (the only reason he is "Good" and not "Excellent" in Bedside Manner), he is thorough, attentive, and caring, which is all you need from a doctor. After my first visit, I will make another appointment with him for my next check-up. I highly recommend Dr. Karns.

He listened and he did not patronize. He did not rush through our meeting. I felt comfortable enough to tell him all of my concerns. He had a plan of action to address every issue in order of importance. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED how I was able to go online to Zocdoc on Monday and scheduled an appointment for Tuesday.

Excellent! As always, Dr Karns supports my focus on preventive measures, such as exercise and taking supplements,as opposed to taking meds. He does urge procedures appropriate to a person my age and based on my family history I am looking forwrd to my next check up Even though I relocated to Phoenix, Adam is well worth the trip to Los Angeles.
