I had called at 9 with concerns with the 3 year old they got me in right away. I had not a 5 min wait in the waiting room and then the dr came in right away with answers and i was sent home.
recent visit, nurse and provider are in rush
we have had cara in the past for exams and she is by far our favorite
the dr and staff are approachable and efficient vs. rushed
Dr. Cara Karls is an amazing pediatrician! we love her so much she always puts a smile on my son's face. thank you!
I love Cara she's awesome
I feel like it was a waste of time.
This is the third time in the past couple months we have seen Cara. After the visit I called my ex husband to update him and we both were praising Cara. We absolutely adore all the Drs in the practice but Cara has definitely stood out.
Very pleasant & calm. Spoke to my daughter and asked her questions to engage her in her own care. This was our first visit with Cara, but we would definitely see her again!
all good experiences
Loved having this dr. We would use her again
Kara was great with our daughter and answered every question we had with no hesitation. My fiance and I both agreed that she was one of the best doctors we have seen at your office. Please pass this along and thank you again!
