Ratings for Dr. Karen Earl
I ended up seeing Dr. Earl when my regular OB/GYN became busier with the OB part of the job. I agree with others - Dr. Earl is like a robot and you'd get more reaction from a doorknob than her. She hardly made any eye contact during my visits. She doesn't really seem to listen (or maybe hear), her comments are standard and her suggestions antiquated and unhelpful. Even though you only see the GYN once a year (if you are lucky), you'd like to be seen by a professional with a pulse - and someone who cares just a little bit.
Dr. Earl was condescending and almost rude. She bragged about her skills on a procedure, but had extreme difficulty performing the procedure and it ended up having to be repeated because it wasn't done correctly. She was abrasive and very unhelpful in my attempt to make decisions about my care. Her nurse is very cold and robot-like. There are no patient interaction skills on either of their parts. She is also medical gyn only, so if you need any surgery, you will get handed off to someone else, and have no choice in who will be doing the surgery - and, you don't get to meet the surgeon until 1 week before your surgery. No time to establish any comfort level or trust, no time to really ask questions or get answers.
