At my last appointment, where I was having sutures removed and post-op evaluation, he killed a spider for me! Yes, that is going above and beyond. Maybe he didn't want me to jump off the table while my sutures were being taken out, but it was remarkable that he wouldn't skip a beat and continue with the conversation as if the spider never happened.”

“Dr. Karbassi's diagnosis and surgery has relieved me of toe pain which 6 other doctors could not identify. He and his PA knew immediately that it was IPK. This keratosis had me at 9.5 pain level for 90% of the time over a period of more than 7 months. His kind snd soft manner assured me that I would overcome my issue in reasonable time and indeed it is working on schedule. My husband and I regard him as a wonderful doctor and have recommended him to people who are stricken with seemingly impossible foot issues. This "gentle giant" deserves praise and a pay raise for the relief he has given me!”
