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!

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 carsdouble 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!

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. notjust 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 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. Sheis 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!

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 botheringme, 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.

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. :)

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 thingis 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.

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 tomy 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!!!
