I have been a patient of Dr Karaki’s for a couple of years regularly now and he is an amazing, caring, thorough doctor. I’ve also had the privilege to work for/with him. Dr K, is one of the most genuine Drs. He truly cares of his patients. His demeanor away from the clinical room about his patients is something that has always impressed me. He truly cares.
