Great doctor

Dr was very knowledgeable, explained everything in detail, what options were and what drawbacks could be. He was also very was personable. I can tell the doctor isn't the type to sugar coat and will tell it like it is and I prefer this style.

Great Doctor!

I read the last review that was so unfavorable and could not disagree more. In fact this physician is the ONLY one who diagnosed my pain correctly. I went to two ERs and two other urologists. NO ONE did a CT scan until I saw Dr. Karos. He then showed me the images in his office and explained them. He also explained my choices. No one ever told me I had choices until that day-they just kept trying to sell me their agenda. He is very direct and clear. But he answered all my questions completely which is refreshing in this day of voice mail, computers and people who are not doctors who pretend to be. He had my kidney stone out and I was back to work by the end of the week. I wish I had seen him first.

One Star

I cannot stress highly enough how much I CANNOT recommend this doctor. From the very beginning of treating me (for reoccurring cases of acute urinary retention), he was arrogant and brusque and never took me seriously. He insisted my problem was neurological (despite a neurologist disagreeing) and never performed any helpful tests to determine the cause of this problem. He didn't even want me to learn how to self-cath but I eventually got an appointment to learn. This morning while learning to self-cath, Doctor Karos came in, barely spoke a word to me as though I was an object rather than a person and assumed explicit permission to start "teaching" me to self-cath. This involved him brutally forcing my labia apart and grabbing my hand and forcing me to shove the catheter into my urethra even though I was crying and telling him I was in a ton of pain. When the catheter went in he let the urine run all over the chair and floor and the dress I was wearing, and said "There, that's how you do it" and walked out of the room. I genuinely felt as though I had been assaulted. It was incredibly painful and traumatic and the nurse in the room with me even apologized repeatedly for what had happened.

Stay far, far away

Dr. Karos has no bedside manner whatsoever. He even acknowledges that he can be abrupt but makes no effort to change. He brought me close to tears. I have seen two doctors since him and neither of them agreed with what he said.
