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.

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.

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.
