Cara Karl's is excellent. She made my son feel very comfortable and helped with questions I had. I would request to see her at all my child's visits.
I love this office and the staff here, I recommend this office to my friends and family who are seeking a new Doctor for their child. Cara has been seeing my son since he was a few days old and she has been such a great help with me being a first time mom. I feel so comfortable talking with her and asking any questions I have.
I like Cara Karls and the way she interacts with my daughter.
Cara was fantastic - energetic, knowledgeable, attentive, and very kind to our daughter. Would gladly see her again!
Couldn't of asked for her appointment to of went any better. She got shots but they knew just what to do to keep her calm and collective.

Very thorough during exam. Talked directly to child making him feel more comfortable. Great personality. Office staff also polite and helpful.
Cara has a spark of energy that I haven't received in a doctor visit in a long time.
I had called at 9 with concerns with the 3 year old they got me in right away. I had not a 5 min wait in the waiting room and then the dr came in right away with answers and i was sent home.
recent visit, nurse and provider are in rush
we have had cara in the past for exams and she is by far our favorite
the dr and staff are approachable and efficient vs. rushed
Dr. Cara Karls is an amazing pediatrician! we love her so much she always puts a smile on my son's face. thank you!
I love Cara she's awesome
I feel like it was a waste of time.
This is the third time in the past couple months we have seen Cara. After the visit I called my ex husband to update him and we both were praising Cara. We absolutely adore all the Drs in the practice but Cara has definitely stood out.
