Verified Patient Reviews
Reception very friendly. Dr Karkanitsa was very patient and had a friendly disposition. Answered all questions I asked him and was very informative. First time visit and will go back to see him again.
In short, Dr. Karkanitsa has a short temper. He took it personally when I questioned his recommended course of action and was unwilling to discuss my concerns. He was unprofessional and treated me very disrespectfully. I would not recommend him to anyone.
He was thorough, seemed very experienced, and didn't mind answering all my questions. He patiently took the time to explain anything I was anxious or confused about.
he was straight forward really didn't gave me the time i need it. and he didn't let me explain to him my concerns.. and i was trying to bring my wife inside the room with me which he didn't let me i wouldnt recommend him.
Great doctor, very intelligent and knows exactly what should be done highly recommend
He is exceptionally knowledgeable and very honest and personal. Overall a wonderful doctor, I recommend his services to all.
I thought he was very professional & friendly. He makes you feel at ease. He explains everything and is very thorough. I'm glad I listened to the other reviews. It's very hard to find a good doctor, but zocdoc made it so easy.
He asked all the appropriate questions for a first visit. He seems to be conservative when it comes to dispensing medication. He wanted tests taken and a full physical in two weeks. I think he is quite thorough.
Never go again
The best doctor I have ever seen. He was very knowledgeable and he had a very good vibe to him. It's very important to feel that you are safe in these circumstances and I foresee being taken care of always by Dr. Karkanitsa !
Great Doctor!!..very knowledgable and the front desk staff was polite.
Appointment was made easily for second day. He was knowledgeable, professional with his good heart. He sent me to Yale ER directly due to suspected acute appendicitis. ER confirms his diagnosis with CT scan and found the cause.
Excellent Doctor and staff
He seemed very thorough and experienced. I think he will probably be fine but I have only seen him once so it is slightly too soon to tell.
