A word from our clients
As an amputee of over 15 years, and having worked with a number of prosthetists, I have found that excellent communication is essential to having a comfortable and reliable prosthetic. You should plan on your prosthetist having a long-term relationship with you. Working with Marc Karn, I have found he has tremendous listening skills. He appreciates and understands what I am conveying to him regarding how my prosthetic is fitting. Additionally, he wants to know what condition your stump is in regarding any sores etc. He is exceptionally easy to talk with and is very open to hearing any of your concerns. Being a prosthetist, definitely, requires a special kind of engineer. We all are so different yet the same. We need someone who is not just good at this position but great! Marc is very exacting in his designing and building prosthetics. He uses all resources available to him to make what is going to be the best prosthetic for you and your lifestyle. While some may think a prosthetician is an ordinary job, Marc is an example of someone doing the ordinary Extraordinarily Well.
Losing a limb is a shocking experience. Your whole world changes, your future is forever altered. Fortunately, I found an experienced prosthetist in Marc Karn with Coastal Carolina Surgical Associates. Marc listened to my concerns and invariably devised creative solutions to suit my needs. I know I am not his only patient, but it sure seems like I am when I go to see him.
The team of specialists here, from the front desk on, are professional and kind. As a Nurse Practitioner, I see the things the public may not and the facility is top shelf as far as privacy, cleanliness and caring. Dr. Weatherford and his entire team worked with me to produce outstanding results. I now have painless, good looking legs again!
