SHC Patient, Apr 2015

I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Karam and all of his assistants. They always spend plenty of time with me and answer all my questions. Their answers are clear and informative. Mostly, they give me encouragement in this battle against ovarian cancer.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

It would have been helpful if radiologic images had been obtained from PAMF before the appointment. I had asked beforehand and told the report had been obtained. However, the corresponding images were not. It also was not clear whether SHC would obtain them after the appointment or whether I must facilitate getting them to Dr Karam.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

He was amazing.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Dr. Karam is an amazing doctor! Rating him a "10" is not good enough. He is a 20 plus!
