This was the first time seeing this provider. She was very friendly, knowledgeable, and explained very well the results of my CPAP readings. I would recommend her.
A very good experience she helped me recalculate my CP machine to a higher level and ordered me a warming tube.
Kerin Konkler is outstanding!
My CPAP machine stops working. I couldn’t get a new replacement unless I see someone in the sleep clinic for evaluation and to issue a new prescription. Karin helped me with the evaluation and sent a prescription to the CPAP supplier. She is courteous and professionally conducted herself during the interview. I’m happy with her service.
First time with this provider & very impressed. Took time with me, very knowledgeable, competent, & gave very practical help.
Kerin was knowledgeable and able to clearly answer my questions and address my concerns. She was easy to talk to and VERY helpful!!
Dr. Konkler is a very understanding doctor of sleep medicine. She is very easy to understand what she says to you. Very please with services.
KARIN IS THE MOST IMPRESSIVE MEDICAL REPRESENTATIVE/PRACTITIONER I HAVE MET IN MY ENTIRE LIFE. AND HER STAFF TO. I HAVE SEEN DOCTORS FOR EVERYTHING FROM HEAD TO TOES AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN. SHE IS EVERYTHING PEOPLE WANT WHEN THEY GO FOR HELP. GIVES ME HOPE AFTER ALL THE BABY BOOMERS RETIRE WE WILL STILL HAVE GOOD PEOPLE OUT THERE.
Karen was thorough and provided clear answers to my questions. She helped tremendously and answered all my questions and provided me with what I needed.
My visit with Karen Konkler was wonderful. She explained things really well and I felt much more positive about treatments than when I went in. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
I am a CPAP user and she checked the machine, we discussed my sleep habits/problems/successes, she answered questions I had, and we accomplished a lot in a short period of time. All went well.
She is one of the very best. Please keep her around.
I was very impressed and pleased with my visit with Kerin Konkler, NP. She was very thorough in explaining treatment options. She listened carefully to me as well.
Dr. Konkler was very thorough. She continued to ask. Do you have anymore questions? until I had no more. She made sure that I understood before moving on. She went the extra mile when she showed me ALL of my options. I was not rushed at all. Dr. Konkler is a rock star!
I have had sleep apnea for several years. This provider was more helpful than everyne else I have seen over the years. She listened and spoke in language I understood. She had practical suggestions for problems. She did not brush off my issues as unimportant as other provider have in the past.
She went above and beyond with solutions to a side-issue and had fantastic knowledge & info.
Kerin Konkler was exceptional (as I told her) so much better than past experiences.
I’d seen Karen Konkler last year and was very impressed with her. That’s why I decided to see her again this year, and I was again very impressed. I am in the healthcare industry myself, so I am perhaps more aware of good healthcare vs. not-so-good healthcare, and this was very good healthcare.
Dr. Konkler is very knowledgeable caring and I wish she’d give a class for many medical staff regarding how to “be present” during your visit with a patient. After all, this appointment isn’t about YOU, now is it? She’s a great listens and responder.
An absolutely pleasurable experience prefaced by a very efficient and knowledgeable reception staff, coupled with a very personable, friendly nurse, finally capped off with NP Konkler who was extremely courteous and caring with her knowledge suggestions and answers.
Kerin Konkler gave me a good experience! She in the right job and she really does it well!
This was far and away the most informative and helpful appointment I’ve had regarding my sleep apnea. Kerin was friendly and very informative, walking me through all my options of treatment. I was VERY impressed and will be sure to schedule all my future appointments with her (this was my first time seeing her). Thanks Kerin!!!
I switched providers to this one bc. I had her as a fill in & really liked her & her knowledge!
Karin Konkler is wonderful & is the only person who is actually helping me feel better day to day. I feel hopeful & we have a plan.
I have never met Kerin Konkler before this appointment. She was friendly, informative and asked me about my feelings and thoughts regarding my irregular circadian rhythm. I like her very much and would like to see her as my sleep medicine provider again.
I was a little apprehensive about seeing someone other than regular Dr. but Ms. Konkler was very qualified & a personable alternative that fit my schedule.
I felt that at times I had to work too hard to be heard. KK talked, offered lots of info but generally, I had to interrupt in order to offer info or ask a question. Once I was talking, though, she seemed to listen.
Dr. Konkler told me about a new kind of mask for my CPAP. I love IT! Thanks! She is awesome.
Both nurse & dr. very nice & helpful.
