Verified Patient Reviews
This was my first visit with Dr Karam. She listened to my issues with interest. She asked the right questions, the ones I've wanted my doctor to ask for years. We worked together to make sure she had clear picture of where I am right now. I am so happy!
Dr. Karam was very thorough, kind, knowledgeable and patient. She made me feel comfortable. I am happy to finally have a primary care physician that I feel I can trust.
I am in the healthcare profession. Just needed a referral, & all the staff, including the doc. were professional, prompt & kind.
She’s a fantastic doctor!
Dr Doris Jaram is manifests Excellence when taking care and shieuhu concern for patients.
My doc is great.
Let’s start from the beginning. Location is great, but be prepared to park in the parking structure behind the office and next to the hospital. The parking lot might have spaces but the majority of them are compact and other cars double park. However with this said, after one circle around the lot I was able to find a space (appt was at 4pm). Reception/lobby staff were amazing and friendly from the beginning. There was no wait to be checked in and I enjoyed the small chit chat with the receptionist. I was informed that Dr. Karam was a great doctor and that everybody liked her. This was great to hear since I haven’t had a PCP in years! After filling out paperwork (since I was a new patient) I sat for about 15 minutes and was them called back. The nurse was friendly and apologized for the long wait (15 minutes was definitely not a long wait!) but I appreciated the acknowledgement that I wasn’t called right away. The nurse went over questions and any concerns that I would like to discuss with the doctor. I waited less than 5 minutes for Dr. Karam to come into my room. Dr. Karam was friendly, caring, and professional. She took her time to listen and discuss everything with me. She was informative and knowledgeable. I am glad I found this office and Dr. Karam. You will not be disappointed if you choose her! So glad I found a PCP that I am happy to have!
I was super pleased that I've found a dr. who cares. I had an excellent dr for 20 years who left the area 3 years ago, leaving me to go thru seveal dr with disappointment until now! Thank you Dr. Karam.
Listen to everything and did not rush me
Dr. Karam and the staff were great. Prompt, courteous and thorough. Dr. Karam really takes the time to listen and address all your concerns.
This was my first visit woth Dr. Kamar. I felt like sje really listened and will get results for me.
She took her time and answered all my questions and concerns. Very good bedside manner which is so important to me with a PVP. You need to feel comfortable with your Doctor!
This is the most soft spoken, caring, patient, and knowledgeable physician I have ever met in my life. She takes all the time you need to answer your questions and never seems rushed. I highly recommend her. Awesome physician
Covered all the areas of my concern. Excellent doctor!
I was interested in establishing PCP and appreciated being seen quickly and how detailed Dr. was in obtaining my information and following up with referral for tests needed.
I really liked her. She was really nice! Seems to really care about her patients.
Dr was awesome!!! my only complaint is my appt and my daughters appt. were cancelled. when asked it was because they could not get ahold of us. I would strongly suggest they call both numbers that are on the acct. not just home number. This was very frustrating and kinda ruined my first visit. This was due to office, As far as the Dr. truly I know Iwill be very happy with her. Thank you
Dr Karam was very professional and thorough. Her staff was great too!
It was my first time seeing her, she is a very good doctor. She took her time with me and is very detailed.
I felt she was very thorough. and listened to my concerns. I'm very happy i picked her for my primary care doctor.
She was a good listner. I never felt rushed with her. I am so glad to have her as my doctor.
Dr. Karam was thorough, respectful, considerate, and empathetic. Her staff stated I "would love her, she's a sweetie, and you'll get along great with her". All of the above is definitely true! She embodies what I need in a PCP. She is well educated, knowledgeable and confident. I also appreciated that in spite of two doctors from the practice being gone, and she was helping to take care of those doctors' patients, she still took the time for me, as a new patient. I left the office knowing I am in very capable hands. Thank you to Dr. Karam and the whole staff!
Great doctor Very professional and curtiuos.
It was all good
AMAZING, thourough Dr. -Love her
Shes is absolutely an amazing MD! she spends times, she doesn't judge she is very helpful and she gave me some great tips! i recommend Dr Karam to anyone!
It took her about 45 min to get to my room, way to long, and was in a hurry to leave, not perfessional
I received a quick and professional check in as a new patient. Dr. Karam listened carefully to my health history and then did a thorough exam. After consultation she recommended follow up. I was very pleased.
I have had so many previous doctors that I can only hope one listens. I truly believe Dr. Karam did exactly that. She made me feel like I was her only appointment today. She asked for the things that are bothering me, and she is referring me to some specialists. I am getting bloodwork done and she's checking for things that I dont think I have ever been checked for, I am in my late 30's. There wasn't a rushed feeling at all, as I have had with previous doctors. She seems like she is genuine in her want to help find the source of my complaints instead of masking with who knows what medications just to get me to be quiet, make another appointment, and come back to hurry up and leave. In all, I hope to become a long term patient of Dr. Karam, and I am hopeful because of the way I was treated. The rest of the staff was also very friendly from registration to making another appointment.
Dr. Karam is very kind, patient, and knowledgeable. She has been consistently pleasant. Clearly, she is compassionate and cares for her patients. I'm very pleased with her handling of my medical needs and strongly recommend her!
Everything with the Dr was fine but I made the apt for 9:30 and the office had the apt for 10:00. Did not like that at all
I've arrived 20 minutes before my appointment. As I step in to the lobby area the receptionist at the counter immediately ask if she can help me. I inform the receptionist that I am a new patient and the process begun. As I am filling up my information and haven't finished yet the nurse called my name exactly at my appointment time. They are very courteous and respectful specially Dr. Doris Karam. She is very professional, caring and there is that voice that can calm you down. I immediately like her as my primary Doctor. :)
the staff was very courteous. Dr. Karam listened to my concerns and she didn't rush thru my visit. I would recommend her to anyone that is looking for a Primary Care Physician.
Dr. Karam explain everything clearly and very patient with me.
She's a great doctor!
I love this office. I have seen multiple doctors there and have never waited more then a minute. I had a procedure that takes 10 min to perform. I walked in at 1:30 and left at 1:45. The only bad thing is calling them. I have literally waited an hour on the phone for someone to pick up. It's just faster to go in person cause the service and doctors are great.
Competent, knowledgable, personable. I would not hesitate to recommend her to others. Calling office is a hassle, hard to get thru most days. Website is quirky at times. Worth the wait.
very nice Doctor, caring and concerned. She set me up with other specialist that I need to be seen for ,for different problems, and also routine blood work and a mamagram.
Dr Karam is wonderful So happy to have been referred to her.
She has a great bedside manner. Instantly put me at ease and seems concerned about my health.
She is very polite and personable. She made talking to her very comfortable. She did not rush in and out of the room and she is thorough with her assessments.
I am a sceptic...and I, like most people expect to wait 30 minutes or more to see a doctor, no matter how early I arrive! Then I feel rushed - as if I am just a number! So I went to my first appointment expecting the typical and I was surprised from the moment I met the front desk staff...to the nurse and finally the doctor! Actually, I am still shocked about how well I was treated! I can't say this about any doctors office I have visited in the past 20+ years!!!
Always a nice visit with Dr. Karma she is a great doctor and her nurse Kayla is a great person too.
She is the best doctor!
I really like how fast I got in. I was in before I finished my paperwork. They got a policy of if u wait linger then 15 min go complain.
Very refreshing to have a doctor listen to me and answered my questions. I felt very comfortable I think it's going be a great fit , it was my first visit with a new doctor :))
Dr. Karam was extremely professional and attentive with my concerns. It's been a long time since I have visited a doctor that has displayed such genuine caring as she did. Dr. Karam is awesome!
She is awesome! I appreciate that she is knowledgeable about my condition as well.
Easy to talk too.
Excellent front desk service!! The best I have seen in a long time. Back office mirrored the same best practices. Dr. Karam and her staff cares about their patients' health.
Dr. Karam was professional, caring, knowledgeable, & very pleasant. I'm looking forward to having her as my personal physician. The office staff was also friendly, professional, & efficient. I was very pleased with my first visit.
Excellent care - Dr Karam listens beautifully, is very patient and encouraging when I'm trying to describe what I have been experiencing, and makes me feel confident that I can ask any questions that I need. She immediately responds with all of the "next steps" that need to be taken, and allows me to ask whatever questions I need, to clarify what is happening. She also contributes suggestions on actions for me to take in order to be more comfortable, and more successfully live with possible side effects of medications. I feel confident that I understand what is happening to me, and what will happen next, based on how I respond to treatment. Her staff (front office and back office) is equally caring, welcoming, and patient with me.
I was actually very happy with my initial visit! She was friendly and informative!
She's a great physician.
Really nice, caring and passionate with her work. I highly recommend Doris Karam.
I've come to Dr. Karam twice now and she knows how to somehow be both professional and personable. She is very thorough and makes sure every question I have and every question she has is answered. I highly recommend her. :)
I was pleased with her time, patience, and positive attitude.....
Very kind, good listener, and informative!
She was great.
The office was clean and well kept, The staff was amazing. Everyone was kind and helpful. Doctor Karam is wonderful. Kind, gentle, attentive. She ask lots of questions and was genuinely concerned with me and my concerns. Excellent
Everything was great with my appointment. I realy like Dr. Karam. Unfortunately after the appointment I got bad news about my medication. I drove 6 hours from my college to update my ADD meds and the doctor was great about it (or so I thought). She told me my prescription would be ready that afternoon at my local pharmacy. When I went to pick it up, they informed me that I needed a hard copy scrip for my particular meds which I did NOT receive from my doctor. By the time we figured this out, her office was closed so I could not communicate with her. Of course the office was closed for the weekend and I could not email her (emails were only allowed during business hours). So now I am headed back to school - another 6 hour drive - without my medication. Hopefully my mom will be able to get it this week, but she will have to pay to mail it to me and I won't get it for several days. So overall i am extremely disappointed with my experience with my medication.
I love how this office is run. People don't wait; they are called in at the time of their appointment. There are signs in the office that state if anyone ever waits more than 15 minutes they want to know about it and fix the problem. We have never waited even as much as 5 minutes. Dr. Karam is kind, gentle, and highly professional. She is not in a rush. She listens. She clearly knows what she is doing. I cannot imagine any possible ways in which she could improve. The highest rating of any doctor I have ever connected with.
Very pleasant and caring
Dr. Karam was very professional and she took the time to answer my questions about my health. I am so please and lucky to have her as my physician. Thank you Dr. Doris
Went well seemed willing to help me figure out what is causing my pain
She was great very thorough understanding to your needs
Great Doctor and Clearing went over everything that was needed to discuss for that appointment ,.,, The extra appointments needed were address before the end of the day. I appreciate Dr. Karam, for caring.
She is the best doctor.
very good visit! Dr Karma is very caring and professional
She's very kind & really listens to you. I love how comfortable she makes you feel.
Thorough and had wonderful advice.
Great doctor took the time to do the exam listened to all of my concerns and problems and showed she cared about the patient (me) made me feel comfortable and relieved to finally get some answers.
I felt very confortable talking to Dr. Karam. I hadn't had such a good experience in a long time. I never felt rushed and I always felt like she was listening to all my concerns. This was my first visit so I am very satisfied with her.
She's great! I am going to be moving to the Bay Area next month, but I am willing commute to back for the doctor visits. She answered every question, addressed all my concerns, very polite, easy to talk to.
I was very impressed that I was seen to quickly. She took her time with me and answered my questions.
Great doctor, first doctor I've ever seen take notes and then address each issue. She explained in detail and set up a game plan. I will see her for a follow up in a month. I finally found my primary physician!
Could not ask for a better primary MD. Doctor Doris Karam took the time to really listen and right away addressed my helath concerns & gave options and recommended I follow up with her to achieve my health goals that we discussed. I could tell I was in good hands.
Dr. Karam was very kind, polite, understanding and respectful. It was my first appointment with her so I unloaded quite a few of my concerns I was having and she quietly took notes and listened until I was finished. I really appreciated that she took notes because then she went over each concern with me and made some recommendations. She also made small talk and was interested in my life. This was the small town Doctor feel, for me anyway. I will be seeing her again in about three months and I will post an update on how things are going. I wanted to mention the staff at First Choice Physcians Partners as well. Unfortunately, I cannot remember the names of these lovely ladies but they were so very kind and polite. They helped me fill out all my paperwork and if I had a question they answered it accurately. They were also friendly which makes a world of difference because doctor visits make me a bit nervous anyway. Thanks to all of the great employees at FCPP as well!
Dr. Karam is amazing and personable. She is actually attentive and cares about her patients. Her staff is friendly as well.
She was very thorough,professional and knowledgeable. Very likable.
I am very happy with my first visit with Dr. Karam. She was very nice. She listened to me. She is my new family doctor.
So happy i found Dr.Karam! Such a sweet and caring human being :) she took her time explaining things, asked me questions and listened, and made me feel at ease!
She sits quietly and listens to everything you have to say, and she asks questions about what you have told her. Then she sends you out for testing to find out what's really going on with you. She doesn't just prescribe a bunch of pills and send you in your way, unlike most doctors I've seen.
The Dr answered all my questions that I had for her. She also talked to me like a person asked questions and if needed responded to my answers
I like how that she answer all my question.
I felt very comfortable with Dr. Karam. She was very knowledgable and showed a genuine interest in my health.
Very professional and had me out in less than 45 mins.
Dr. Karam is a wonderful doctor who truly cares about her patients. I would highly recommend her to any one I know.
It was very wonderful - I was comfortable. She listened, took notes and showed concern. I loved that!
