I experienced severe abdominal pain beginning in the afternoon and continuing through the night. I called Dr. Karlyn early in the morning and she saw me immediately that morning, ordering blood work and a CT scan, which confirmed a diagnosis of appendicitis. She advised me to go to the ER. Although she attempted to pave the way for me to get through the ER quickly by speaking with the surgeon there and sending him the CT scan and blood work, I was advised by a rude individual at the ER front desk that the fact that the ER surgeon had this information didn’t matter and that I had to wait like everybody else. I eventually saw an ER doctor who was compassionate and he ordered another test. However, I spent a total of 5 hours in the ER waiting room before finally being admitted to the hospital for an appendectomy. Throughout those painful 5 hours, Dr. Karlyn stayed in touch with me, as well as with the ER doctors. Although the ER experience was deplorable, Dr. Karlyn continually texted me and was there for me every step of the way.
I have never experienced such compassion and diligence from any health care provider. I am appreciative that Dr. Karlyn is my physician because I know that she will go above and beyond to ensure that her patients have the best care.
