Specialties

Dr. Melvyn P Karp has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Surgery

    A pediatric surgeon is a qualified surgeon who has additional training in performing surgery on young patients, including fetuses (neonatal or fetal surgery), infants, children, adolescents and teenagers.
    Because pediatric patients are still growing and developing, they are often more difficult to operate on than adults. These patients have smaller bodies and smaller organs requiring even more of a precise and measured approach by a surgeon.
    Some of the conditions that may require the care of a pediatric surgeon are congenital malformations, such as cleft lip and palate, abdominal wall defects, like hernias, deformities of the chest wall, childhood tumors, like neuroblastomas and separation of conjoined twins.

Great Experience

Dr. Karp treated our young daughter like an adult. Before exams and tests, he made sure to speak with her and find out what was happening and how she was receiving the information. He chose to sit on the bed next to her, and he explained what he was going to do prior to beginning. He opts to not wear scrubs and white lab coats in order to not 'worry' a child. When five medical professionals said it wasn't what it wound up being, Dr Karp ordered an additional test as he knew something wasn't right. We are so grateful he left no rock unturned. Our daughter had surgery, and has since had her post-op. When I told her I was going to give Dr Karp a review of up to five stars, she said, "Oh! Definitely give him give stars!"

Great Pediatric Surgeon

Dr. Karp performed surgery on both of our sons and did it very well. He's a nice man that cares for his patients and is genuinely interested in doing the best job possible. In the past his staff has been so - so, but they change. If your child needs surgery I would trust Dr. Karp.

The absolute best doctor hands down!!

Dr. Karp was Professional, courteous, and very patient with my family. He explained all of our alternatives and then recommended the appropriate action. On the day of surgery he was nurturing with my child and put him at ease. Dr. Karp got our family through this ordeal without any setbacks and I would highly recommend him to anyone that wants the best for their child!!!
