Dr. Jason B Karp has the following 2 specialties
- Pulmonary Disease
A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr. Karp used to take care of everyone in our family (in-laws included). We all started to see him when he was part of Pro Health (Now he is a Northwell physician). My mother is 84 and has had several emergency situations it is impossible to reach him and his office staff refuses to give an appt. no matter how serious the situation. He absolutely over medicates his patients. I brought my then 13 year old son to him 3 years ago for Asthma and of course Dr. Karp wanted to load him up on medications being a nurse and my husband a physician we thought the better of it and my son has not had a sympton in three years nor has he taken any of the unnecessary medications. Most recently our Aunt had a situation that warranted his immediate attention (at 83 she did not want to go to the ER) his office refused to give her an appt. before two weeks. He has changed since he started practicing and has become uptight and inconsiderate. He pushes everyone to go for a sleep study so my guess is he is financially invested in that as well. Btw he will gossip between family members and people that know each other that is a fact so please be careful what you share with him. To me that is the most unprofessional thing you can do. Trust me find another doctor!
Best experience in a very long time. Thorough is understatement. Thinks outside the box! Very detailed report sent to my Doctor. He listens. He makes people feel they are very important. He cares. He spends a great deal of time with each patient. He is very anxious to try everything and is not an alarmist. Unfortunately one may wait for first appt. trust me, it is well worth the wait He's a genius No stone unturned Vibrant personality Run don't walk!!!!!
