Dr. Karen is one of the best doctors I have ever visited. She really cares about what is going on with each person and doesn't see the patient as another contribution to her "boat payment or golf fee" like some other doctors do. I recommend her to all my friends.
Great doctor that really cares. Dr. Dr. Rader enters the room and you feel as though you are being visited by an old friend. No discomfort or embrassment with her. The most caring, compassionate and competent doctor that I have visited. She will spend as much time as needed to find the cause of your problem. Well worth the wait. Highly recommend!
I have been seeing Dr. Rader for 15 years and while she is the most thorough doctor I know, she is always running late. I often plan my day around her visits! She is a very compassionate, thoughtful, caring physician though and has treated my family very well!
Best Dr I've ever seen. She will spend as much time with a patient as they need. She won't quit looking for the cause of your symptoms until she finds the answer. She says that she is very blessed to be doing a job that she loves and you can tell she feels that way when she treats you. She gets to know you as a person not as a patient. When she comes into the exam room, she greets you like she is thrilled to see you again. She will patiently answer all your questions in a way you can understand. I can't say enough wonderful things about her caring, her knowledge, and her thoroughness. The only negative is that she is always running late. You won't mind though, because there will be a time when you have a 15 min. appointment for what you think is a minor complaint, but she'll spend an hour or more with you because she's concerned about the symptom and doesn't want you to wait or have to come back for additional tests.
I had my first visit with Dr. Rader today. She made me feel like I was talking with an old friend. She actually listened to me and spent a lot of time with me. She is one of the most caring, easy-to-talk-with doctors I have ever known (and I've known many doctors in the past 45 years.) I did have to wait awhile once I got to the office, but the wait was well worth it. I've been trying to find a new primary care physician for over a year now (and have seen four others in the process who didn't make the grade) and she has all the qualities I am looking for. I think my search is over. I would highly recommend Dr. Rader to anyone.
