Explanation

A truly outstanding doctor! I have a complex medical history and Dr Karra recently navigated me through a daunting complete knee replacement journey as my intensivist. She organised several pre op tests - was at the foot of my bed when I came out of anaesthesia , visited me twice daily even late in the evening throughout my hospital stay at Princess Grace and continues to monitor my post op recovery at home ( on the phone ). Her attention to every aspect of patient care is meticulous as is her organisation of my recovery plan. A true professional- extremely efficient ! Yet the most endearing thing about her is her genuine affection for her patient and her ability to reassure them. I never felt alone during the entire procedure.! It is not often that one comes across such a proficient doctor in every which way. Feel truly blest to be in her care.

Dr. Karra, was very polite, asked a lot of questions about my medical history. She made sure that I understood about the medicine I was about to understand take, making sure I knew the Pros and Cons about the medication. She gave me plenty of time for my questions and answered the in a manner I understood. She also sent me video information about the treatment. I would recommend to a friend.

Dr Karra was very professional, gentle, and caring. When describing my symptoms she was listening, asking the right questions, and explaining what it might be. When doing the physical examination, it was done with sensitivity and privacy. She explained in detail what tests have to be done as well as why each test will be done - what she is looking for in each test. She was very patient in answering my many questions. I came out feeling calm and that I'm in good hands.
