I don't know where to begin to describe what an incredible visit I had with Dr. Karmali. He was extremely kind, compassionate and understanding. He has an incredible ability to listen and hears what you say. He asked extremely pertinent questions and never once was judgmental or responded negatively to my answers.

Dr. Karmali -- even though our contacts have been limited in the 18 months since my heart attack and hospitalization -- really seems to know and understand me. He had reviewed the notes and knew what my concerns were, and he was wonderfully responsive.
