Ratings for Dr. Lina Karayan
Before today's appointment, I would be inclined to agree with every positive comment made on this physician, but after having seen her today and, trying to explain what has happened to me (both health and otherwise) in the past few months, all she said was "What do you want from me?" over and over again in slight agitation and she made me feel like I was wasting her time. I could not believe it (I took exactly 20 minutes for the appointment including physical). I was too shocked during the appointment to say anything about her attitude. I won't get into specifics but my home and work life have changed drastically to the point where I have not a moment to breathe and all she could say was my bp is too high and she wants to up my medications. She was relentless in her lack of sympathy or even understanding of my situation. I live in a 3 generation household where I am sandwiched in the middle of an ailing parent and young children, full time working husband, as well as full time work myself and she wants me to find time for exercise?? I can't find time to breathe!
Very nice lady, she listens and seems genuinely concerned but in the end often does not take the problems I come to her with seriously. She seems to hope issues will go away on their own instead of looking into them more thoroughly and treating them.
Dr Karayan is the best Dr I have ever had, she has been my Dr for approx 10 years. She makes you feel like a friend as well as her patient and always welcomes you with a smile. She takes all the time necessary to determine how to treat me. My medical files with her is promptly kept up to date. I could not wish for a better or more dedicated Doctor.
Dr.Karayan takes time to taks with the patients and shows real concern for their health. She is not the kind of doctor who will ask a few questions and simply prescribe a pill. She asks many questions and avoids too much medications. Also, she is honest and will say when you need to see a specialist.
Worst experience with a DRE ever!!! I felt like a number, my case was too complicated for her (what see told me :0). She was not helpfull at all, it would have been better for me that day to go see somebody helse. After my visit, I was demolish because of the way see make me felt and what see told me!!
She is professional, thorough, caring and goes the extra mile. My husband, myself and my daughter have all found her exceptional. She simply cares. She relates and listens. She puts you at ease - does not dismiss your concerns but makes professional assessments. We are truly fortunate to have her as our GP. I cannot recommend her too much. I had an incredibly anxious year of tests, biopsies for breast cancer. She was amazing and ensured I got the care I needed. Called at home! Can you imagine?! Tops
I am very happy yo have Dr. Karayan. I have seen her for 10 years now.She is very personal and caring.She never makes me feel rushed and I feel I can discuss anything with her.Great to know I have a wonderful gp I can trust and rely on.I hope she will continue to practice in our city for many,many years.
