First time visit with new doctor went well!

I have recommended to my best friends but you care full and practice is full

  Oct 30, 2023
Dr.Karam and his Nurse Assistant Michelle are excellent. I am significantly happier with the level of care received from them than with any Primary Care Team I have worked with in the Legacy system, ever and with most providers worked with in other systems. I have one had one care team, long ago I was almost as happy with.

  Oct 26, 2023
Before my visit, I sent Dr. Karam notice of a health issue I wished to discuss. He was extremely well prepared to discuss the issue.

  Oct 23, 2023
Nurse told me that ny appointment was not for my annual check up but for a follow up of an urgent care visit. When I made my appointment I mentioned that I needed the urgent care follow up and my annual. It was bot her fault since she did not schedule it but she did not have a good attitude about it and doubt me. In the end they made it work and I was appreciative of it. Making an appointment for a medical need is almost impossible. It take months to see a doctor . Staff and doctor are great professionals and I know a lot of this is not their fault.

  Oct 19, 2023
Just like every meeting, he listened to my questions very patiently and gave me various answers. I really hope he is my doctor forever.

Doc Karam is accepting of my lack of willingness to jump into medicines or complicated studies,etc. He always gives me a choice of something I can try first, like weight loss or P.T., to try to not take another medicine. I need this in a doctor. He's very patient and THOROUGH.

I can't think of anything that could have increased the quality of care that I receive from Dr. Karam. He is thorough, and very clear explaining what and why. He listened to my questions, and answered them thoughtfully. He is genuine, interested and empathetic. He clearly knows my health history, and addressed any prior or upcoming health concerns. Dr. Karam is best physician that I've had in my years. Thank you Dr. Karam and Staff for the excellent care you provide my husband and I.

One of the assistants was extremely helpful after I had seen the doctor. I was waiting for a stool sample kit, but my original assistant was busy with another patient. So this other assistant became aware of the situation and prepared the kit for me with speed and friendliness. I was impressed and said, "You are very kind."

  Mar 28, 2023
The doctor was dismissive of my concerns, had a thought track of a pharmaceutical intervention, and wouldn't deviate from his assumed understanding. I don't feel my questions/concerns were resolved, which makes me question coming back to this provider in the future. Very disappointed.

Dr Karam was very good at answering my questions and concerns I would give him a 10 . A good doctor !

David Karam has been my Dr since he moved to Portland. He has been very responsive and extremely kind. Always listening and providing great care.

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.

  Feb 13, 2023

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.

  Jan 6, 2023
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.

  Dec 30, 2022
