Dr. Karst is the most brilliant physician in all aspects: professionalism, great bedside manners, listens to patients, and cares about his patients. I would recommend him to all my family members and others.

Doctor was decent and nice enough but the staff was absolutely unexceptable, they called in the wrong RX, also i had to keep going back to give blood samples because something kept "happening" to it. Each time i would wait like two weeks and finally call them and get the same response " oh we meant to call you" the doctor maybe be nice enough but i wont go to a doctor who allows his office to run this way

Great Doc!! Genuinely cares for his patient's well-being. See him 4 times/year and he always remembers what is going on in my life, not just my health. He is very knowledgeable and is a good man. Takes time with his patients despite how busy he is. Has top notch staff that handle all situations with expertise and genuine care. Highly recommend Dr. Karst for any age patient.

Very pleased. Wait time is very low. Dr Karst takes the time to listen to my problems. I highly recommend his practice. Should have swapped to Dr. Karst 25 years ago!

I really feel fortunate to have Dr. Karst as my Primary Care Physician. He appears gruff at first,; but after the initial introduction, he listens to what you have to say and is very knowledgeable. He helps you in anyway he can & knows when you need further investigation by a specialist. If you should need test or an appointment with another physician his staff ate helpful in making the appropriate appointments & schedules for you. His nurse calls you personally once your test analysis are back to discuss them with you. I re reduced the number of stars for his staff because they seem a bit cold, unapprociable, and not very friendly. They are professional an helpful, but it's. as if they are going through the motions. But they are concerned and willing to help; you've just got to get past their initial exterior. THE wait time in his office is excellent. And your normally not waiting along with a bunch of other sick patients. I am very happy with the care and expertise I receive from Dr. Karst.

Great doctor who knows his job very well. Dr. Karst is probably one of the best doctors I have seen. His diagnosis has alway been spot on. His motivating words to me were to take the bull by the horns. So far, I am doing better.

Don't be fooled by his personality. I have used Dr. Karst for years, and while he is an excellent doctor, know that they way he treats his staff is shameful. He is nothing short of mean to them. He thinks that we don't hear him outside of our rooms cursing and slamming doors to his office. I don't know how the ladies that work for him take him 8 hours per day. He's nice to you face to face, but I've seen looks of disgust on his face when he comes out of a room with a patient. I also know that if he does that with other patients, I'm sure that he does it with me as well. It's something to definately keep in mind.
