My husband had a melanoma removed from his arm. Dr. Karanetz was his plastic surgeon for the repair. She was concerned, informative and caring. Follow up visits were positive and she took the time to explain the healing process. She and the staff made a worrisome time a positive experience.

When in LA no Island Jewish Hospital recuperating from a hip replacement where the wound area was not healing , Dr. Karanetz was assigned to take care of me. I was not able to investigate nor choose a plastic surgeon on my choice, however, I could not have been more delighted if I was able to choose. Dr. Karanetz was extremely competent , reassuring, and friendly. At the hospital and subsequent visits to her office she took the time to throughly examine me and explain how I was progressing. I could not have been more pleased. Lucky to have had her be my surgeon.:)

I was seen by Dr. Karanetz in the emergency room because she was the Plastic Surgeon on call that day. I'd like to say my experience with Dr. Karanetz was exceptional. She made be feel comfortable and was very attentive to me and answered any questions I may asked. As she was working on me she explained what was happening and what I might feel. She had to stitch up just below the brow. In the end, you can't even notice there was any injury there. In the future, If I needed anything done I would go to her and recommend her to anyone who would be in need of her services.

If I could give Dr. Karanetz more stars, I would do it! I considered surgery in the past but backdown because I did not feel comfortable. Years later I met Dr. Karanetz the chemistry was instant. She made me feel comfortable and secure about every aspect of my process. The way she cares about her patients is exceptional; she is genuine. Unfortunately, days later I had to be hospitalized for something totally unrelated to the plastic surgery. During this time, Dr. Karanetz went above and beyond! She went to visit me every day. She even went on her days off to check on me and my healing. I truly was in expectancy of her visits every evening before her going home; definitely sweet. When I say that Dr. Karanetz has the full package you are looking in a doctor, I’m certainly not lying. Her work is impecable, her bedside manners are warmth and empathetic and she really cares about your wellbeing. If I ever had to consider plastic surgery again I will go back to her without any hesitation.

Dr. Karanetz is a very dedicated to her patients. She made me feel very comfortable and at ease from the very first time I met her. Her treatment is very professional but at the same time, very warmly personal. She is very caring and receptive. I couldn’t have done my surgery with someone as thoughtful and passionate as Dr. Karanetz.

I am beyond satisfied an happy with the results of my experience with Dr Karanetz. As a biatric patient i had severe loose skin & was very unhappy with how i looked after loosing 100lbs. Consulting with Dr Karanetz and phasing out my plastic surgeries gave me the hope I was looking for. Ultimately Dr Karanetz performed my Tummy Tuck+ MR in June 2018 and from a size 16 i went to a size 8; My second plastics session with Dr Karanetz of an extended brachioplasty in Aug 18 complemented my dream body

I would highly recommend Dr. Karanetz! She is extremely professional and knowledgeable, and took the extra time to explain the procedure to me. I had my upper eyelids done by her and couldn't be happier with the results. You are in great hands!!!
