Legacy does a great job overall, and Dr. Karam is a fine physician. He's thorough and reassuring. The entire team works well together, and I really appreciated being able to get my blood test does immediately, right in the exam room, rather than negotiating a process to set up a separate appointment in a different location.

Dr. Karam does such a great job that I recommended him to my elderly parents and to my fiancee who has never had a male GP before. This visit was no exception. Thorough, thoughtful, and patient are the three words I'd use to best describe his approach to healthcare.

Dr. Karam, I felt, listened well, and took the time it did to establish a game plan going forward to begin with. Also, made the referrals necessary to meet my needs and requests. I'm really hoping that the level of care I just had on my first visit with him yesterday continues as such with each visit going forward and maintains this level of care and understanding.
