She joked a lot so couldn’t take her serious. My appointment was at 3:15p didn’t get seen until 4:30 and shecloses at 5p. She said she will email me any medication she recommend I take but also told me I was healthy. Never received any email. She also didn’t do a x-ray or MRI of my back or recommend I have one. She just recommend I take Flexril along with Ibuprofen for my back because those are medication I already have.

I've been seeing Dr. Karen for over two years. She is always very professional and thorough. She takes time to answer any questions or just time listening to her patients. She always encourages me, with my health issues, and I'm sure this is the case with all of her patients. There have been times, when I've arrived at the office feeling hopeless, and that it is impossible to reach the goal of taking control over my A1C, she always shows you a silver lining on how your case is not hopeless. Dr. Karen is always understanding, and very good at edifying her patients, making them feel comfortable knowing that she is confident and very capable of caring for her patients. Long story short I love her.
