“Dr Karra was very professional, gentle, and caring. When describing my symptoms she was listening, asking the right questions, and explaining what it might be. When doing the physical examination, it was done with sensitivity and privacy. She explained in detail what tests have to be done as well as why each test will be done - what she is looking for in each test. She was very patient in answering my many questions. I came out feeling calm and that I'm in good hands. “
