“Dr. Karpman is an excellent Urologist. I suffered from ED for about 15 years, and used supplements and viagra medication. However, eventually, this did not work anymore. I learned about penile implants, and found Dr Karpman, who does these on a regular basis. Everything went according to plan, as far as the operation is concerned, and the implant works fantastic. I have no regrets and highly recommend the procedure. Steel-hard erections and no more frustrations! RG Monterey County.”
“The very best in the business. Treats men like men, very open and honest with his answers to your questions, and genuinely wants you to get what you pay for. Met with me before surgery, explained the procedure, and made me feel confident that I was in the best hands possible. My post-op appointment was no different and my belief in him was confirmed when he showed me active sperm from my sample. DO NOT HESITATE, he is as good as anyone around.”
“Dr. Karpman helped my husband and I when no one else would. He is an amazing doctor with real heart. Sometimes life presents you with challenges and you need someone that is willing to go above and beyond to help you. Dr. Karpman is that person. I owe him my future and don't know how to ever thank him enough.”
“Excellent urologist and surgeon. He is the Top implant surgeon on the west coast. High-volume which is crucial for a successful outcome of penile implants for erectile dysfunction. I also had Peyronie's disease so he also had to perform an excision of the plaque scar tissue and replace with graft along with the implant. Dr Karpman is not only an excellent skilled surgeon but is a caring individual as well which is quite reassuring when undergoing a personal procedure such as this.”
