Doc is the most down to earth doctor I have ever seen. She has the best bedside manners I have ever experienced with a doctor. I feel like I can talk with her about anything going on in my life and she doesnt judge me. I dont have a lot of money but I will spend every penny I have to remain a patient of hers. I would be lost without her.
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
My Civilian and Navy medical training, in what I call "traditional Western medicine,” has provided a solid base on which to add and expand both holistic and Western knowledge. I strive for a balance between the two, while working within the conditions of patients’ desires and actions to “be all you can be.” I have learned that treating symptoms without addressing the underlying causes is not the way to true healing. Seeking and resolving root imbalances is the goal - the road to success.
My new MDVIP-affiliated practice model is an amazing venue for patients to experience treatment the way that they truly deserve. It brings back the “family physician” concept of Marcus Welby, a friend you can trust and confide in. Over the last 30 years, my practice has evolved to both empower and encourage patients. Combine that strength with time and personalization and add the benefits of cutting edge medicine technology, what could be better?

Dr. Dantin takes the time to listen, explain test results thoroughly, and I really appreciate the fact that she suggests supplements and nutritional changes instead of pushing medication unless it's necessary. I really love her willingness to work with me to be the healthiest I can be.
Dr. Dantin.. I am so honored to be a patient of yours! You've always been so caring and concerned about my health. Being able to talk to you not only as my doctor, but as a great friend means so much to me! I really appreciate you more than you know. Thank you for the seninars you do as well(as they're so helpful and informative)! God Bless You Always!
Happy Physician month to all the great doctors and particularly Dr. Karen Dantin for her willingness to listen, to allow and encourage her patients to ask questions, and for her strength and courage in not accepting the status quo of medical care!

You can say a lot of things that are compelling and true about Dr Dantin. The real bottom line is she cares more for her patients than herself. You can't ask for anymore than that.
