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.

I have been Dr. Karim's patient for more than 10 years and wouldn't think of changing. She's the ultimate medical professional. Beside from her medical expertise, she's kind, patience and compassionate. She doesn't rush you "in and out", but spends time with you -- and when needed (she seems to know when) even double checks your vital signs that have already been taken by the medical "assistant" (just to be sure). She reviews the reports from your last visit, making sure you have followed her previous medical recommendations. She asks a host of questions also making sure that your medical insurance will cover prescriptions proposed. She also explains in great detail her diagnosis and "why" she's prescribing the tests, etc. Dr. Karim is a wonder. Anyone under her medical care should consider themselves "most fortunate, truly blessed and lucky." Lorraine H.
