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 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.

Dr. Karam was great. He asked questions, listened, and was extremely respectful and courteous. In conducting his exam, he explained not only what he was doing, but why.

Legacy does a great job overall, and Dr. Karam is a fine physician. He's thorough and reassuring.
