Dr Karur seems very knowledgeable; however, his accent does make him hard to understand at times. He thinks I have a rare blood cancer so he wasn\'t familiar with all the tests I needed without doing research. I\'m having to wait a week so he can do research. That is understandable, but also hard

Dr Karur, as always, took great care to you make me feel comfortable and well informed about my csncer. His assurance left me feeling that everything is being done. He continues to question and push S&W insurance to get the care I need. The insurance shows to me and other family members that they are NOT concerned about me getting the care I need to battle my illness. It is apparent they do not care about life, just the money. They are an embarrassment to the name of S&W hospital. Get the feeling they are not concern about me living as long as they save their money. Dr Karur has to waste his valuable time trying to get the help I need to survive. He truly is an amazing man.

I struggle with being diagnosed with Cancer. it\'s very difficult to wrap my hands around, the labs, lab results, Dr. Appts, what\'s going to happen. But the Dr. is patient with me. And that speaks volumes. Unfortunately I\'m not a very trusting person, but I feel comfortable talking to him about my concerns and worries.

Dr Karur was courteous and respectful but there was a feeling I had that he wondered why I was referred to him. He made some comments that were a bit unnerving; "before we start a $1,000,000 course of treatment" and "the possible need for a bone marrow biopsy". Then, "but we are just going to wait and monitor your blood"
