Dr. Karlin is an excellent physician and takes his time when diagnosing and offering a course of treatment. I have seen Dr. Karlin on occasion over the last 5 years and have really had the chance to know his staff. I cannot say enough about Dr. Karlin; he is a good doctor and a very good person.

Dr Karlin & the Group was referred to my by my pediatrician, as well as my Neurosurgeon @ Scottish Rite. My son had an accident, & fractured some skull bones directly related to his ear. Dr Karlin was diligent in our first visit with him to remove the blood in his ear. This was an extremely painful process for my son, & I found Dr, Karlin to be very patient & understanding to my 14 year old, when he acted like a 4 year old! He explained what had happened with the injury & the healing process for my son in a way that was easy to comprehend. I find the entire staff to be very gracious & efficient.

Did not wait long for my appt, Dr Karlin was good at asking pertinent questions and did his exam almost simultaneously. Was careful in his explanations and clear in his education. Got me a hearing test right away and waited only a little while to have him back again after reviewing the test to make final reccomendations. Great experience for a first ever appt with this doc.

The staff should be given a way to give a more accurate estimate of wait time. I asked about this when I had waited 15 minutes past my appt. time and was told 15 minutes or so. In fact is was 60 minutes!

I really like Dr. Karlin, but the wait time in the office before you are seen is terrible. I waited more than an hour before I was even called back. So I got out of a 9 am appointment at 10:45. This is ridiculous. It also happened to my wife last time she was there. 2 hours from appt time to finish... It seems that the office staff could do a better job with the scheduling......

Dr. Karlin was not able to see me immediately but one of his techs was there in just a few minutes. She got all the pertinent info so that there was no wasted time when Dr. Karlin came in shortly thereafter. My wife is a retired RN who has worked with a lot of doctors and we were both impressed with his caution in getting all the background on this first visit rather than diving in an prescribing something that might have been more harm than good. Overall, we were very impressed with his knowledge and concern for my condition. Looking forward to continuing to work with him to resolve my issue.

Horrible. Dr Karlin has very poor social and communication skills. I felt like i was directing the questioning and visit and not him. He stared at his computer for the majority of the 15-20 mins I was in the room with him. This was the worst encounter I have ever had with a physician. I would not recommend anyone to Dr Karlin, and would highly urge anyone I know to never see him.

Not a good experience and not professional. My husband had surgery Dr must been in hurry and he must be his last surgery that day and talked to nurses in front of us which was unprofessional. He made them put all his IV in fast and at once cause he was in a hurry that day. After surgery and causes what he had the nurses put all meds with IV at pnce he got very sick for 3 weeks and office wouldn't made an appointment to see the doctor after his surgery they didn't seen to care at all. He could of die if it was something serious. My appointment was ok but after my husband experience I will and would not recommend him or his office

They have gone to a tablet based check in system. It was so nice not having to fill out a ream of paperwork being a first time patient. It was quick to fill out the information on the tablet and I got to swipe my credit card for my deductible so check out was painless. Why can't more doctors do this???
