Dr. Karmali is a truly kind person and the best cardiologist I’ve ever had. I usually dread going to the doctor, but I actually look forward to my appointments with Dr. Karmali. He has a nice way of explaining things so that they make sense to someone who doesn’t work in the medical field and he actually takes the time to listen. If there’s a doctor of the year award can someone please nominate him?
