An excellent physician!

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

Dr. Karpf was thorough, VERY knowledgeable, and took enough time for a VERY thorough visit.

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

Dr. Karpf is very thorough and I appreciate how he takes the time to explain things to me. He also went out of his way to have my thyroid gland checked while I was there (I drive 2 1/2 hrs. to Stanford) for a possible biopsy.

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

Dr. Karpf is an amazing Doctor. Very intelligent and takes the time to explain his choices of medications and why. His therapies have reversed my osteoporosis!! I couldn't be happier with a doctor & care.

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

While I had several issues to discuss, the doctor spent 90% of the time going in-depth on his favorite topic.

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

He was just amazing! Clearly Dr. Karpf loves his work. It showed through in every moment.

SHC Patient, May 2016

The doctor was very informed and worth the wait for an appointment.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Dr. Karpf is a wealth of knowledge. He spent a ton of time with me making sure I understood my situation so I could made an informed decision re drug therapy. I have already recommend him to a friend who has an upcoming spot.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Excellent knowledge & sharing.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

I was a little disappointed that Dr. Karpf hadn't reviewed my test results before my appointment. He also seemed a little confused in finding the results on the computer.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Dr. Karpf was amazing. Spent lots of time with me and thoroughly explained everything. A rare doctor today!
