I really liked Dr. Karellas. He is very calm, thoughtful and explains things very well so that the average "lay person" can understand it. It definitely seems that he is well versed in his area and gave very practical advice. Woulddefinitely see him again. He also had a great physician's assistant who took all of the "vitals" and things who was very professional.

Dr. Karellas proved to live up to his highly praised reputation. He was very kind, straight forward and knowledgable. He took somewhat of a scary situation and put me at ease and really took the time to explain what he thoughtwas going on and what the next steps were as well as all potential treatment options. I didn't even have questions after the entire visit which is odd for me! I highly recommend him.
