    Dr. Karlsson was available on Friday, October 13, 2017 -- quite a while after hours. Her being available had a huge impact on my ability to get both an ultrasound and a biopsy on suspected breast cancer. Dr. Karlsson's availability allowed my other doctors to schedule my mastectomy quickly. I commend Dr. Karlsson and attribute the early detection of my invasive breast cancer to her. She most assuredly saved me from having to have chemotherapy. Dr. Karlsson goes WAY beyond the line of duty!!!
