  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

find another doctor immediately

I recently had a brain tumor removed that was causing multiple symptoms and seizures. Dr. Karan told me I did not need to tell anyone I had a brain tumor. Glad I found another neurologist.

1 star too many

One of the worst experiences I've ever had. I was having numbness in my feet and was recommended to go see Dr. Karan for testing. Waited 15 minutes before being put into a room, where nurse asked me questions about why I was there. Many of these I had already answered via office paperwork. Nurse then did various tests and left. Waited another 10 minutes for Dr, who walked into the room while talking on his cell phone. 10 minutes later, he hung up and went through the paperwork I had filled out and asked the same questions the nurse asked. He then started asking questions about my personal life - who did I live with (boyfriend), what was my relationship with him (again, boyfriend) and was I married to him (no...again, boyfriend). He asked me why I wasn't married to him (I joked that I had the other "m" in our relationship - a mortgage) and that I should be married to him if I was living with him. I was too stunned to give the reply this statement deserved. He did the basic checkup tests but kept taking breaks to answer cell phone - half of which were not work related (one was about a gold session with a friend). His final recommendation was to run a series of painful tests to assess my neurological system. I asked if the numbness in my foot might be related to a bad back and several back injuries. He assured me that no, that wasn't the cause. I left, didn't return and went to see a great chiropractor who fix up my back and foot.

Dr. refused to tell me what an EMG entailed. Took phone calls on his cell phone while doing the EMG. Consulted with other doctors about patients while on speaker phone in my presence. Rude. Receptionist consistently conveyed incorrect info. Sent partial reports to my internist.

the most unprofessional doctor I have ever experienced. I felt like I was being kicked out of his office while my hand was bleeding after he stuck the needle in there wrong. I've never had so much pain before after leaving his office. Very rude and made two personal phone calls while I was there.
