I went to see Dr. Karp for a consultation (a $200 charge) about a tummy tuck. His super fancy office kept me waiting for over an hour and then I met with his office manager (who was wearing scrubs as if she was a medical practitioner). She took my information and had me disrobe. The doctor came in, removed my robe without even introducing himself and started poking and prodding. It was a very unsettling moment because I was so uncomfortable with my belly since my pregnancy and I got tears in my eyes. He actually asked me "why are you getting so emotional?" I couldn't believe how cold he was and I told him that he might be emotional if his body had been changed from carrying twins. He was dismissive and then excused himself from the room. His office manager came back and could tell I was upset but she just starting giving me the costs and telling me when the doctor was available. I stopped her midway and told her not to bother since there was no way Dr. Karp was going to touch me. She asked why and when I told her (still pretty teary and upset) her justification was that he is just a real alpha male. As if that is an excuse for being a jerk. The only nice thing I can say is that they didn't charge me the consultation fee because my experience was so horrible.
