Patient Reviews
Nov 16, 2022
Dr, Karp saw my son in the ER for an inguinal hernia, which we then had to repair one month later. Dr. Karp is kind, patient, and took the time to explain everything to my son. He has years of experience and makes you feel calm. He gave me his cell phone number and told me to call him with any issues. We had the surgery at West Boca and were very happy with the experience.
