Dr. Karim has been my doctor for many years and I am going to hate to see her go. She remembered everything about me when I came in. I loved her steps for action if there was ever an issue. I am not a person that likes to switch doctor when I have established a rapport like we had. She will be truly missed.

Awesome spirit and bedside manner. Unlike other physicians I have had over the years, you truly feel that she cared for your total well being. An excellent doctor who took time out to explain what she was doing and listen to questions quite patiently. I hope to have her for my primary care giver for forever, because I know the good doctors are hard to find!

My visit with Dr. Karima was excellent. As always she shows genuine concern about my health and any concerns I have. After telling her my symptoms, she gave her diagnosis and instructions for my treatment. My disappointment was with my wait time in the reception area. When I signed on, the receptionist was on the phone so I took my seat expecting her to call me once she was finished with her call. However, 30 minutes later I was still sitting there when another patient arrived abs signed on. The receptionist asked her information, took her copay and told her to have a seat and that someone would be with her shortly. I waited a minute expecting her to call my name but when she did not, I approached the desk and made my request. I am used to coming into the office, signing in, sitting and waiting to be called but to not be called at all is unacceptable.

Be aware of this practice. The doctor would put in wrong code to get more insurance money. I went in for an annual physical. The doctor asked routine questions about my health. I brought up that I felt a bit fatigue thinking this is part of the routine annual physical checkup. Lord, was I wrong. It turns out the doctor entered this visit as a sick visit so months later I received a bill for it. My insurance company would have covered the whole cost for an annual physical. But because they entered in as a "new patient sick visit" just because I brought up being fatigue during the check-up, I'm now on the hook for this amount. I called the office to have them correct this but was told the doctor left the practice and there's is no way (according to the office manager) that they can change this. And I was told by the office manager that since I brought up I was feeling fatigue during the visit and it should be considered a sick visit. Well I guess it was my fault. Thanks a lot.

I have been seeing Dr. Karim for quite some time and she is always fabulous. She fusses at me about my not taking care of myself, when I take care of everyone else and that let's me know she really cares. The administrative/medical assistance staff are all fantastic and I appreciate how well they treat me.

This entire office is great. The staff is funny and welcoming - seriously, nothing is better than sitting in your designated room waiting for the doctor to come in and overhearing the nurses talking about how nice they think you are. They're the nice ones. Dr. Karim also listens to everything you say. She really makes you feel heard, and it's not an act. She takes everything you say into consideration and is incredibly clear when it comes to explaining possible diagnoses. Not to mention you always have access to your test results via the patient portal. Highly recommended!

Dr. Karim was, as usual, highly professional and helpful. I came to get, among other things, a blood test to show that I'd been vaccinated properly. She asked one of the medical staff to do the test. The young woman was very pleasant, but did not have the slightest idea what the test was. She tried to look it up in a textbook, but could not find whatever information she needed, and ultimately sent me to a lab for the test. I found this lapse, along with the many failures of communication I've experienced there (phone messages and a fax not acted upon) to be a bit disturbing and I am considering moving out of this health plan.

Reception was quick and easy. I waited for about 30-40 minutes in the waiting room and then another 30 minutes in the patient room. When I arrived in the patient room, a gown was in the chair and the patient bed had crinkled paper. The nurse took care of it then and there, but I've never walked into an unprepared patient room anywhere else. It threw me a bit, but Dr. Karim was very knowledgeable, understanding, and informative. I am overall, pleased with the outcome of the visit.
