Dr Kar is dealing with my pituitary problems, he shows care in all he has done for me, his attitude has always been interest at all times in explaining the medical condition, to ensure that I understood it fully. Dr Kar is a first class member of a wonderful team of people at QA hospital who I have found cannot do enough for the patients.
As a physician I cannot fault him. He has certainly dealt with my pituitary problem in a totally satisfactory way. What in particular distinguishes him from so many other doctors is twofold: his willingness to go the extra mile to deal with issues that are beyond the line of duty; and his extraordinary willingness to communicate and organise swiftly and effectively even when on leave. A relentless drive to achieve.
Dr Kar is the first doctor I've had in a long time who actively looked at my medical record, asked me questions about my medical history, listened to my issues and considered new medications and new techniques of managing my diabetes. He seems to be highly effective and I'm managing my condition better than I have been in some time.
