Reviews on AARON W KARR
I have used Dr. Karr since he has been here... I have never had any problems.. I have Psorisis,Diabetes,Fibromyalgia,Rheumatoid arthritis,Psoriatic Arthritis,Arthritis. If it hadn't been for Dr. Karr I would never found out that I had Diabetes.. He has done more than any Doctor in Alabama has ever done for me since I move here and I've been here for almost 10 years on Jan. 2014.. I don't know why others have problems but for me he's been there for me. I'm a 51 year old female and couldn't ask for a better and nicer doctor.. I just to comment on how great of a man Dr.Karr is!!!! Thank you for listening..
I have used the Shoals Primary Care office to see two different doctors - Dr. Ridgeway and Dr. Karr. While I don't have an issue with the doctors themselves, the office and billing department is so mismanaged that I am changing doctors. The wait time to see any of the doctors there is ridiculous, and I have been dealing with a billing error for over three months now that was never corrected. I never received the promised follow up calls that were supposed to happen after getting my "issue" resolved, but I continued to get a bill each month. I had provided all of the information that they needed, and it was simply a matter of the doctor and nurses coding my exam incorrectly. Instead of my insurance paying the 100% that they were supposed to pay, we finally ended up paying almost $400 between my husband and myself to clear the account. It was obvious that they were never going to handle it. I have never seen such a lack of communication and effort. I strongly encourage anyone who is considering this clinic to NOT go!
I asked Dr. Karr to fill out and sign a hospital claim form on Aug.20,2013 I called the office several times but he had not signed it. On Oct 20,(60 days) I send a letter, got a respond on Oct 30,13.He was paid 100% for his service. But he was not caring enough to sign a form for me. I think he is rude and arrogant.I had that same form filled out by the retired doctor in 2011 and 2012 and never had a problem.
When you ask for help you should be able to get help, especially if you are paying the man for it. Thanks for your help Dr. Karr.
