Exceptional physician. I feel very fortunate to have him as my primary Doctor.
I feel lucky to have Dr. Karam as my primary provider. He's knowledgeable and kind, and always spends time with me, which I appreciate very much.
Dr. Karam is a model Provider in that he shows care and concern while being helpful and knowledgeable about your personal care. I'm so fortunate to have found him as we moved and needed a PCP. He is the best!
He always listens to me.
I was very pleased with my recent annual exam with Dr Karam. He was very informed about my past and more recent health history. He answered my questions throughly and provided specific recommendations. His physical exam was appropriate to my PMH and current history. I was very impressed that a topic we discussed about 4 months ago that he had followed up and provided a specific response to issues we discussed at that time. I am very pleased that I transferred my care to Dr Karam as my PCP.
I was able to get my COVID booster, talk about my health concerns, and get a checkup done in a caring but quick matter. My prescription resulting from this appointment was available at my pharmacy shortly after, so I appreciate the quick request of that prescription.
Dr. Karam is a caring physician who takes the time to listen to you and is very knowledgeable in all aspects of medicine.
Dr. Karam is an excellent physician. He takes time in explaining every aspect of concern and listens to my concerns. When necessary, he calls to relay the results of tests that may come after seeing him, to explain such results.
Dr. Karam is competent, thorough and respectful.
This was an initial "meet and greet" appt as a new patient. I could not have been more impressed with Dr. Karam! He was respectful, listened carefully, made excellent suggestions and made me very confident that he will be a top notch pcp going forward.
Dr. Karam is amazing. He listens very carefully, knows his stuff and gives great advice. I recommend him to everyone. He is one of the best doctors I've had. 10/10 would recommend seeing Dr. Karam.
I have already recommended him, and they have scheduled appointments and then to see him
Dr. Karam is knowledgable, a good listener and takes time with each visit.
Dr Karam and Michelle were the best!Everyone in the office is great
Reception is always awkward. Yesterday they thought I was there for a Medicare visit, even though I tried to tell them I was using my work provided insurance and was not there for a Medicare visit. Dr. Karam straightened it all out once he found out what was going on. He's a great guy. Very capable, friendly and knowledgeable.
Dr. Karam always listens carefully and responds helpfully to all my concerns and gives explicit instructions and guidance.

I'm very grateful to have Dr. Karam as my internist. He's very knowledgable and thorough, answers all my questions. The treatment plan he created for me has been highly successful with excellent results.
There was no bad experience. Professional, no rush, and answered all questions.
I am impressed with Dr. Karam every time I see him. He is very professional, yet friendly, informed and informative. He listens intently and answers my questions in understandable language. At the appointment In question we discussed options along after he explained their pros and cons. I feel like I have some element of control In my own healthcare decisions. That's refreshing!His staff is friendly, capable and attentive to whatever request is on the table. But, there is one thing that has nothing to do with medical care. It has to do with aesthetics. Upon entering the office, the patient has the outdoor light behind them and once Inside, a big plate of glass between them and the staff. Maybe additional plexiglass as a Covid measure? Not sure about that, I'm walking In blind. After all that, staff members are placed behind large computer monitors and as the patient (me) enters, one never knows which station that little voice comes from "I can help you over here." If all staff members are busy helping others on the phone or are deep into something on the computer, one wonders where to go. So! That's my pet peeve and I'll end by saying, "Thank you, Dr. Karam and all the others that allow you to provide excellent healthcare.
Dr. Was great. He asked questions and listened to what I had to say. Does a great job and never rushes me.
I really love Dr. Karam and feel very comfortable with him. He is a great doctor and Michelle does a wonderful job too!

I am entirely pleased with Dr. Karam's care, but I was left waiting for the doctor to see me for 40 minutes!!!!!!!!!! And no one checked on me or explained why such a delay.

Dr. Karam is extremely cordial and takes his time to explain everything and asks questions of us that are relevant. He is not like some other doctors that just sit in the computer and don't even look at you.

This was my first visit, establishing as a new patient. Dr. Karam was excellent and we planned around all my needs and concerns. His follow through has been great.
All good so far, only first visit
This was a truly great Doctor's visit. My previous PCP retired at the end of March. I made a cold call/visit to Legacy Southwest and Dr. Karam was taking new patients. He spent quite a bit of time with me, got all of my medications over to the pharmacy, got me lined up for x-rays on my hip at Good Sam. He Is also Initiating a referral to an Orthopedic Surgeon for me. All this In a few days. I couldn't be happier.
This was my first time to this doctor. Everything was very good.
Dr. Karam is awesome. He listened very carefully ask lots of questions. I've had a health issue for years with no relief. Dr. Karam prescribed a med that took care of it.
I feel that my health has improved as a result of the doctors in this office
Dr. David Karam is top notch. He's polite, knowledgeable, has plenty of time, and is very professional -
Very impressed with Dr Karam. New visit to establish Dr Karam as Primary Provider. Was aware of past Legacy records.
It took 4 months to get first appointment for PCP
The provider had good insight, explained well and made good recommendations.
Always listens and spends the time to discuss my concerns
Dr Karam asked questions & carefully listened to my responses. He frequently asked if I had questions or concerns. Provided feedback/care plan info & throughly explained rationale for labs & preventive tests. Asked family/social life questions & provided some information about his background also. This was my initial visit w Dr Karam & I was very impressed by him & feel he will be a great PCP for me & my husband. Grateful to have found him.
I have had (and am currently having, as a badly injured worker) a history of negative experiences with the medical community. Being a patient of Legacy Health and Dr. Karam's have been nothing short of miracles to me. Dr. Karam is one of, if not the best, doctors I have ever had. He makes me feel cared about as a patient and human being. With my history and life experience, I am deeply affected by members of the medical community such as Dr. Karam and those I'd seen prior down the road at Legacy Urgent Care RH. I couldn't speak highly enough about my experience with Legacy Health or of Dr. Karam - nor fully convey how much those positive experiences and having such a doctor has meant to me. Thank you for employing such outstanding health care heroes
The Dr.David Karam
The staff in the waiting room was very unhelpful, they were gossiping, hanging out, and not paying attention to their job. I was accidentally an hour early for my appointment and wasn't made aware of my situation until 20mins waiting in the waiting room. When I came back right on time I was told to wait, another 20 mins go by after my appointment time and finally someone calls me back. ANOTHER 20mins goes by until I see my provider. I made this appointment over three months ago and had a list of things I wanted to address with my doctor but because the wait staff was so uncaring I only had about 10 mins with my doctor before I had to leave because my appointment was almost an hour behind schedule. I just felt like none of the service people valued my time at all...or the fact that I had to take work off for this.
I am always treated politely and professionally by Dr. Karam and his Team. Very happy with the care I have received.
Dr. Karam is very kind and seems truly interested in my overall health. I am very happy that he is my new primary doctor. I would recommend him in a second to anyone that inquires. His staff, likewise, are caring and take the time to answer all my questions and concerns.
My husband and I are very pleased to have Dr Karam as our Primary Care Physician. We feel he knows what he is doing and has a good bedside manner.
Excellent medical professional

Dr. Karam is not my usual primary care provider, but he did a fine job examining and advising me.No complaints.
I felt relaxed with my visit with this doctor and the communication was good both ways. I definitely Will go there again.
Dr. Karam was organized and well informed, but just as importantly he is a good communicator. He asks pertinent questions and listens carefully to the answers. He seems down to earth and, for me at least, "relatable."
Dr. Karam is probably one of the best doctor's I've had. He is always willing to address all my health issues in a very caring way. He explains in a way that I can understand.
This visit was to establish care. Dr. Karam was very well prepared, had reviewed my past medical labs and was easily able to discuss my health concerns. I felt like he understood my concerns exactly and I look forward to getting his advice. Thanks very much.
I was put on a cancellation list for an earlier appointment.
I am happy with my provider.

Good expectations met and great follow up
Dr. Karam, nurse Michelle and entire staff have put the word "care" back in healthcare.
It was just a very pleasant visit where we discussed my current healthcare needs and he answered various questions about my health.
I wish MA's would wear name badges!
Dr Karam spent as much time as needed with me. He was never rushed and he gave me his full attention. The office help is exceptional.
