Do NOT go here!! Would give a zero if I could!

I recommend anybody over Dr Karas and his NP Brandy Dantzer! After a year they pulled the only meds that helped my Thyroid symptoms. They stated I was getting too much and instead of lowering the dose from 2 a day they pulled it all cold turkey! Talk about jacking up a persons body in an instant! Then Brandy sent me to IUMed Center in Indianapolis stating that she had no problem with me seeking a second opinion and she didn't think it was my Thyroid. After only one visit to IUMed with first Endo and then Rheumatologist(yes the Rheumatologist!not endo!) did blood work and found Hashimotos Thyroiditis. So I went back and asked to be switched to a different NP in Dr Karas office and Brandy and Dr Karas refuse stating that they were right and IUMed center was wrong! Ridiculous! So after a year of my symptoms being treated(or more like ignored) from Dr Karas and Brandy Dantzer, I now have more health issues Then I did when I first started going there. Stay away from this office!!!!

Dr. Karas

I searched long and hard to find an endocrinologist that I thought I could trust. Given Dr. Karas' length of service, I was encouraged to see him. I am very glad that I did. I moved here three years ago and was concerned about having to find a new doctor that I could trust and would treat me as an individual and not be judgmental. He's awesome!!!

knowledgeable Dr.

Dr. Karas is a very intelligent and compassionate man. I am so thankful that my family Dr referred me to him. I felt completely at ease after my first appointment. He was very thorough and explained things in terms I understood. After doing my own research on my condition, his diagnosis was what I expected and his referral to Dr Sloan for surgery was appreciated. I am happy with the care given to me and glad to be on the way to recovery!

Two Stars

I wanted for an hour & 15 minutes before seeing Dr. Karaos. That is a little crazy. BUT I did really like this Dr because he actually care & gave me an accurate diagnosis when another specialist hadn't. He is very thorough & made sure I did not leave without understanding anything he had or questions I may have had.
