Dr. Karmali, spent a significant amount of time getting to know me including identifying/ learning my medical history and current needs. His examination consisted physically checking my ankles, which I don’t recall any other doctor doing and I have been to many doctors. Dr. Karmali stated that he needed to spend more time studying my records because there is so much he did not know and I appreciated that.

Great personality. I'm a new patient. He took the time to review my history, discussed past issues, current issues and came up with a plan to address them. Explained everything about what his plan of care was and set forth a time frame.

Dr. Karmali is a wonderful physician. He is an attentive listener, and does not rush through our appointments.. He is very thorough in assessing any changes that may need to be made in my medications.

I’m hard-pressed to recall an interaction with a physician who is more empathic than Dr. Karmali. He sets a very high standard. Model of patience and professionalism. I’m equally impressed by his commitment to making certain I completely understand my condition(s) and best treatment options. Moving forward, I will most assuredly look forward to Dr. Karmali being my cardiologist.

He is great! Kind, concerned and listens to your concerns and addresses them completely. He has a great bedside manner and truly is a great doctor. At nearly 85 I have been to many doctors and he is among the very best - the top 2.

Dr Karmali listens to all that I have to say and looks at me instead of at the computer. He understands my view point, but conveys his professional opinion of the discussions, which is what the doctor should be doing. He only runs tests he thinks are appropriate and he says we will be talking after the results are back, which he does very promptly. I am very happy to have him as my cardiologist.

External Professional Relationships
Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
