Patient Reviews
Feb 01, 2017
Dr. Kara is a very compassionate and very knowledgeable in her filed. She takes time to explain and listens to the needs of her patient. I am a mom of a special kid and I know what it means to be understood of the needs of my son, but Dr. Kara is there and will go out of her way to help and address our concern be it medical or social. She has a BIG heart to understand the needs of my special son, I admire her not only as my son's pediatrician but as a mother who really cares.
