My experience with this doctor has always been good. But at this juncture of my care it seems that I'm going to need a knee replacement. Of course he recommended some doctors for me for consultation. I would recommend him to anyone who asked me for a orthopedic doctor

Dr. Karns, Dr. ***, and the rest of their team were very kind and respectful. They both took my concerns into account, but also ultimately gave their own recommendation as to what treatment plan should be pursued. I felt like they listened to me and tried to guide me to what would be the best possible option.

Dr. Karns is the the best. He operated on my knee back in march was attentive to my rehab goals and recommended a similar thinking physical therapist. He kept up with my progress during PT, gave me excellent feedback and helped me reach my goals thus far. I could not have found a better orthopedic surgeon.

Dr. Karns is excellent, he does move quickly (I'm sure because he is in high demand), but he made sure that I felt seen and cared for and took the time to continue building the personal connection with myself and my husband. He made sure that we had no additional questions, that we were set for surgery and the post-surgery follow up and that my questions about PT were answered and that I got the notes that I needed for my post-surgery care.

I have no complaints about the care provider my only complaint was the receptionist had a attitude and I told the Doctor that. I was told she was only there in a temporary basis. The black lady does not need a job like that if she has to work with a lot of people.

(5)

Dr. Karns was very nice and gave me excellent news that I did not need surgery. He was very thorough and covered all the details which gave me confidence that I can seek him out any time I need any ortho care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.
