This doctor was amazing. I have been to so many doctors who have dismissed my pain but he really cared and took the time to listen and understand. The only downside was I had to wait quite a while to be seen (almost an hour past my appointment time).

THE ABSENCE OF PROFESSIONALISM AT THIS OFFICE WAS ASTOUNDING. I CALLED TO CONFIRM THAT THEY ACCEPTED MY INSURANCE, AND, DESPITE THIS ORIGINAL CONFIRMATION, THEY INFORMED ME AT MY APPOINTMENT THAT THEY DON'T ACCEPT FIDELIS, EFFECTIVELY RUININGMY MORNING AND MAKING ME WASTE 3 HOURS OF MY DAY. THEY WERE UNAPOLOGETIC ABOUT THIS FACT AND DID NOTHING TO AMELIORATE THE SITUATION. IN ADDITION, THEY NEVER RESPONDED TO MY REQUESTS FOR A FAX NUMBER TO SEND THE RESULTS OF MY X-RAYS AND MRIS. MY EXPERIENCE HERE MAKES ME QUESTION THE VERACITY OF SOME OF THE OTHER REVIEWS. I WOULD STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS OFFICE.

Karan Johar has been my saving! He's the doctor you can trust with your health. He takes you so seriously, he does anything in his power to help and he really cares. When you visit him it feels like he hasall the time in the world - which is important when dealing when complicated, chronic pain. I have met with far too many doctors over the past years, but not any since I met Dr. Johar.

Kind, honest, and attentive. Though my reason for visiting was minor, he still took plenty of time to gather as much information as possible and offer me a variety of advice and solutions regarding my problem. One of the best doctors I've ever visited in the city!

Have been experiencing some ongoing pain so I made an appointment with dr johar. He was recommended to me and I'm very greatful for his assistance. He was able to evaluate my condition on the spot and put me at easewith his indepth knowledge combined with a calm demeanor. Having had some poor experiences with other doctors in the past, I am very pleased to have found a great one in doctor johar.

I was initially referred to Dr. Johar by another Dr. for the severe neck & back pain I was struggling with. It was obvious from the start that he has concern for his patients care - he listened and created atreatment plan according to what I did and didn't want. Based on his experience/expertise, he advised me to go thru with a couple procedures - which were both very successful and have resulted in a SIGNIFICANT reduction in pain. I am back to my active lifestyle and would recommend Dr. Johar to anyone suffering with pain.

They were having complication trying to bill the insurance....aside from that, the doctor insisted on me trying some procedure that i told him was not successful in the past., yet he still wanted to insist..i feel it was a waste of time on both ways.
