Dr. Karmali listened to my concerns about my hearing, did an additional test finding a possible reason why my hearing seemed muffled in my left ear where I tested perfect, unlike the right ear where I have lost hearing, finding water behind my ear drum (and a possible explanation). She even drew me a diagram to explain it to me. She suggested trying an over the counter antihistamine to see if that helps the right ear problem (possibly due to nasal drainage issues) and gave me a referral to the audiology clinic to follow up.

Dr. Karmali is genuinely caring and extremely knowledgeable. She is culturally appropriate and works with me as a partner in determining the best course of treatment based on my preferences. She is respectful, professional, and ethical in all aspects of her medical practice.

Dr. Karmali is the best. I usually come prepared with a number of issues to talk about for my annual exam and she listened to each one and addressed all my concerns and even reviewed my questions from my last annual exam. I feel very cared for and comfortable with Dr. Karmali.

I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Karmali to whoever will listen. She is a wonderful doctor that listens and understands. She saved my life when she sent me to ER a few years ago when I had a DVT/PE situation. I can never thank you enough.

I have recommended her to all of my friends/coworkers and everyone has agreed that she is an awesome and amazing doctor. she takes the time to discuss what you are looking for and the bottom line to what is going to help you. she is excellent with follow up and is very knowledgable and caring about the type of care that each person needs versus what she wants. her style is perfect for the type of people I refer to her.

Having just recently moved to Washington, this was my first visit to Dr. Karmali. I was apprehensive because I had to leave an excellent doctor. After my first visit, I feel that Dr. Karmali may be even better than my prior doctor.

I love Dr. Karmali, she's one of the best doctors I've ever had. She's patient, she listens to me, she offers fantastic advice and care options. I feel very comfortable talking to her about my health concerns, whether they be physical or emotional. The entire staff at this office, from front desk, billing, MAs and nurses are fantastic. I've recommended Dr. Karmali and this office to multiple people in the past and will continue to do so.

Dr. Karmali is the best doctor I have ever had. She is legitimately concerned with my physical and mental well-being and always makes me feel important and cared for. She's very knowledgeable (but still knows when to reach out to a colleague for validation on her treatment approach) and has been an incredible caretaker.
