Dr. Karas is the best doctor I have ever had because she has listened to my needs. She has shown compassion as well as a willingness to learn and grow, and admit when she doesn't have knowledge about something. I trust her because she is open about her limitations and I feel she truly cares about my health as a person, outside of numbers or any personal biases, which has been extremely rare for me to find in my lifetime.

Dr Karas always makes me feel like I really matter not just me health issues. She never seems in a rush and answers questions in a way that is always easy to understand. I would pay out of network or out of pocket to keep Dr Karas. I recommend her to everyone ! I am a peds nurse and my diabetes was not under control until I saw her. My first visit she explained how to count carbs and how to calculate my insulin based on my blood sugar and diet. She made it all make sense. She never makes you feel guilty or judgemental.

She is always very kind and listens well. She also is encouraging about the future instead of making me feel bad about my failures in the last review period. We addressed them, but didn't dwell on them. I would gladly recommend Dr. Karas to anyone who needed her skills and experience.
