While Dr. Karamardian was not our OB/GYN, she is part of the same medical group (PACWHA) and was the OB/GYN on call when we finally delivered BOTH of our babies (separate births). Absolutely wonderful doctor, very knowledgable, very skilled, and did a great job in delivering two NICU babies. We appreciate her work tremendously!
If I could give Dr Karamardian a negative number I would. She is rude, has no bedside manner and condescending. She really needs an attitude check or to do another job. She’s really given up on “caring” and understanding her patient’s feelings on sensitive topics that impacts their family. Time for her to retire.
She is extremely knowledgeable and ensures that you and your baby are healthy and monitored closely. I had a few medical issues during my pregnancy and I felt she always got me to the right specalist to ensure my babies health and wellbeing. I appreciate her comprehensive care.
My daughter saw dr Lisa karamardian today after a 3 month wait and was treated like garbage by the doctor and her assistants. They mocked her as they walked down the hall for my daughter and all to hear. She was disrespectful to my daughter and never greeted her. Looks like this is her typical behavior according to many others. Unprofessional, disrespectful and arrogant. Then she was absolutely rude to my wife in the phone. Deserves a -10 rating.
My daughter saw dr lisa karamardian today after 3 months wait. She was the most unprofessional doctor that we have experienced, ever! Treating my daughter with distain and disrespect, her assistants were mocking what my daughter had said to the doctor as the walked down the hall. This was unbelievable. They won’t let a parent in, but they felt free to mock a patient for all to hear. She so full of pride and botox, good luck if you find yourself under her care. I’m sure that we are some of the many who would never be found in her disgraceful office again.
I left this appointment crying over this doctors abrasive and insensitive comments. Not only did she not maintain privacy while completing a vaginal exam by inviting office staff into the room, she never once told me when she was going to touch me, insert anything, or even when the exam was completed which consequently left me lying in the stirrups for a few awkward extra minutes. She attempted to convince that I am diabetic despite never asking to see recent blood work that says otherwise and concluded that “we will run it again since you are overweight”. She never listened to my concerns and brushed them off in an annoyed manner. My husband and I are trying to conceive, 5 months now, and before leaving the exam room, she stated “if you aren’t pregnant by now, you’re probably infertile”. I was shattered and she couldn’t care less. Horrible bedside manner.
If I could give her and her sister a zero, I would. The worst team I have to dealt with: unethical, uncaring. when asked to explain things they acted like we challenged them
Excellent doctor and an amazing human being. Professional, accurate and she really cares about her patients.
Dr Karamardian is the best doctor in every way! She works her butt off working night and day, on call and working these crazy hours no normal person can function let alone be nice and so attentive. She always goes the extra mile with me as well as all her patients. She delivered my son and I was so Blessed she was my doctor. I never had a stress in the world knowing she was there. She makes it look so easy but I could never do what she does and help so many whom don’t deserve her. I love you Dr!
I had to have a C-section and Dr K is without a doubt one of the most taltented Ob-Gyns in the US... Ignore the negative reviews if you want the highest level of expertise and someone with great surgical skill. I had what could have been a difficult pregnancy and it turned out to be very smooth with a short reovery from the surgery to have the baby... I will be using Dr K for our second child...
Dr. Karamardian is in one word, "remarkable"... both in the office and during childbirth. She makes every effort to provide you with information, comfort and her staff responds to her guidance with the upmost professionalism. She brought my first son into the world with joy in her eyes and skillfully so. Follow up doctors at Hoag Hospital couldn't believe how beautiful my "incision sight" was and the literally jump at her requests. She is on the board at Hoag as well.Now with my second son on the way, I am beyond grateful to be her patient a second time.
Dr. Karamardian is an incredibly knowledgable physician who treated my uterine hemorrhage with great confidence and competence. I've had the exact opposite experience as some of the reviews. I don't go to a doctor for hand holding. I want my doctor to be updated, thorough, experienced and confident. I liked her direct approach and trust her diagnostic and therapeutic decisions (and I'm a physician myself) Sometimes there will be longer wait times but then again babies don't schedule their deliveries around appointments. Dr. Karamardian does answer texts on vacations so she's very dedicated.
Dr. Karamardian is one of the best doctors and saved me during a hemorrhage. She is very smart and experienced. Her practice is busy but she responds to texts even during vacations.
She is efficient, which is the nicest thing I can say about how much time she spends. It isn't exactly a pleasant experience, I would not recommend her, the main reason being her staff does NOT respond to calls or emails from me nor my pharmacy. At all. I thought maybe it was just one bad nurse, but they're all unresponsive and then speak condescendingly to you once you call them out on the multiple calls, etc.
I've seen many OB/gyn doctors in my life, as I've moved around the country and have lived in different areas. Dr. Karamardian was by far the worst of them all. She came across rude, irritated by my simple questions and has clearly chosen the wrong profession. With the many dedicated doctors out there, I'm truly surprised this woman still has patients. I will not be returning.
I have never dealt with such an unprofessional atmosphere. While my physician was good, it was the condescending, disdainful office staff that had me baffled. Especially "Laurie" who refused to give me her last name over the phone. She was so patronizing and hurtful I had to make time out of my week to write a short review to warn any new patients looking for an OB/GYN. If there is a doctor where you should feel welcome, safe and understanding, it's your gynecologist. Then I find out that "Laurie" is actually Lisa. As in Dr. Lisa Karamardian. Shame on her.
Lisa has the charm of a billionaire who was forced to see patients once a week in order to claim a giant trust fund. She is very obviously not happy to have you in her office, and proceeds to perform required inspections with the warmth of a factory robot on an assembly line. Unless you are wishing to be in the presence of someone with giant diamonds, over the top smugness and who looks down on you for being in her office... look elsewhere.
I am so happy I selected Dr. Karamardian for my OB. I ended up with a very difficult pregnancy and she was great every step of the way. I didn't always wanted to hear what she recommended - but she was right and it was best for me and the baby. Thankfully, we delivered a healthy baby girl with no complications. It could have turned out horrible if I didn't have a knowledgeable and educated physician. Thank you!
While Dr. Karamardian may be well-educated and a knowledgeable OBGYN, her attitude, condescending tone, and unknown whereabouts were somewhat concerning. During our first visit we apparently weren't given the right instructions by her staff, and then when we finally did see her, she suggested we had erred. If only I had questions about obnoxious jewelry, and fashion, I would have felt better. And to top it off she wasn't there for delivery and we haven't heard from her since. Odd.
While Dr. K may not be super warm and fuzzy, she is an amazing & knowledgeable OB - I would not go to anyone else. She came in off of vacation to deliver my son, and really seems to care about her patients. Love her!
