My 28-years-long doctor that I loved and trusted was retiring, so I knew I had to find a replacement. Taking into account that I was beginning to have minor memory issues, and knowing that Alzheimer's runs in my family, the search was on. My husband and I had already been studying a great deal about how nutrition and supplements can affect the brain. We also learned about Dr. Dale… See more

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Karing
Have been going to Dr. Karing long before he joined MDVIP. He has always showed a complete professional attitude and will listen to what you have to say. Can get in to see him usually the same day. Also have enjoyed getting to know him on a personal level. Just increases the trust I have in him as my doctor.
In 2017, my wife of 48 years was nearing hospice care and was recuperating from major neck surgery. We had begun seeing Dr. Karing in the past couple of years, and we were very pleased with his overall care and knowledge of my wife's condition. However, it was during this stressful homecare time that Dr. Karing showed amazing care and compassion. One night, after going on hospice care, my… See more
I’ve been a patient of Dr Karing for 20 some odd years, well before he established his MDVIP practice. He was a great Doctor before and with the MDVIP practice has been able to provide me with the same great care but with the added benefits of a concierge practice. And a whole lot more personal attention! In fact, I was so impressed with his concierge practice that I added my 88 year old Mom… See more
Dr Karing - You do so many things for our family. There are too many to list. But, I want to thank you especially for the care and compassion you gave for my mother when she was dealing with Alzheimer’s. You truly were a Godsend for me and my family. There is no way we could ever repay you. Love...Kelley
I met YOUNG Dr. Karing in 1996. After my father died I moved my aging Mother to Texas so I could care for her. She had early dementia and eventually had to be moved into Assisted Care.

Dr Karing has been a godsend for my elderly mother and me. He has taken several after-hours calls, provided sound advice saving my mother midnight trips to the emergency room during cold/inclement nights.
I commend him for leading presentations on contemporary health issues and providing copies of his slides for those of us that are unable to attend.
Dr. Karing has been my Dr. for many years. He listens to me and respects my thoughts and concerns regarding my health issues. He is a great Diagnostician. I respect him as a fine Physician and appreciate his friendship. It gives me comfort knowing he is always there for me when need be.
I receive great service and accessibility from Dr. Karing as well as from his assistant Dana.
