My husband had ALS and was completely paralyzed, which made it almost impossible to get him to a doctor unless I used an ambulance which was expensive and very stressful for him. Then I found Dr. Cartaxo, who was an answer to our prayers since he made house calls. Under his care my husband improved and therefore needed less hospital visits. I would recommend Dr. Cartaxo to anyone whether they need a house call or just a doctor's care. I found him to be kind, compassionate and an exceptional doctor.
Doctor Cartaxo was able to help me after other medical professionals had failed.

It was a sunny day in June and construction people were working all around my home. I was driving to Home Depot when I called my husband to ask if anything else was needed when he said he had been stung by bees and felt weak. I called Urgent Care House Calls and Dr Cartaxo said he would be right over. When I arrived at home I found my husband on the recliner weak, sweating, and complaining of dizziness. Within minutes Dr Cartaxo arrived. My husband's blood pressure was dropping and he seemed to be fading fast as he started complaining of chest pain. Dr Cartaxo had me call 911 as he put in an IV and injected several medications. Within minutes my husband's color improved, the chest pain resolved and he became much more alert. By the time the medics arrived the crisis was over. If it had not been for Dr Cartaxo, I'm afraid to think what would have happened!
Dr. Cartaxo traveled out of his area to come see me at my house when I was ill. He diagnosed and prescribed medication on sight. I am so privileged to have found a doctor so knowledgeable and so accessible. I have recommended him to many friends and I will continue to do so.
Dr. Cartaxo’s two plus decades in a busy hospital emergency room gave him the ability to diagnose quickly and precisely. He saved my daughter many trips to the hospital.
Dr Cartaxo is a real life saver ! A few months back on a Saturday evening I abruptly developed a migraine headache . I had developed nausea and vomiting with crippling pain . I had not had a migraine this bad in years and the last time it had landed me in the emergency department of a local hospital . The experience was terrible ,I had waited in a crowded waiting room for almost five hours and when the doctor finally saw me I was dehydrated barely conscious . This experience in the ER was as traumatic as the headache itself . So for this headache I called Dr Cartaxo and his house call service . It was a Saturday and I was desperate for relief and I explained this to Dr Cartaxo . He was very compassionate and was at my house in 20 min ! Within minutes of arriving he had administer medication and had an IV inserted . His treatment of my migraine was incredibly sophisticated and his approach was professional, far more professional then I had experienced years before in the ER . Within an hour I was pain free and all my anxiety was gone . The next day he had called me to see how I was doing , I thought what great follow up . I will always be grateful for the help and care Dr Cartaxo had given me that evening and have recommended him to my family and friends .Everyone who has used this well trained , compassionate Doctor was very very happy . And his fees are more than fair for all the service he gives. He is truly a life saver !

I would like to say that I am very satisfied with the quality of care, the time spent with me addressing my issues, the swift response that is always available whenever I have needed Dr. Ken Cartaxo. He is very thorough, and I have always felt I am receiving the highest level of expertise. I absolutely recommend Dr.Cartaxo for all your medical and nutritional needs.
Dr. Cartaxo was recommended to me as he is board certified and would come to the home; extremely important as my Mom was elderly and not very mobile. He was always available 24/7and treated her at home for years. He also coordinated my Mom’s medical care, when necessary, with her Cardiologist at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center. My Mom was very sharp, had worked at Columbia Presbyterian for years and was very selective with her own medical care. She had total confidence in Dr. Cartaxo. He was able to provide IV at home when needed and handled an array of medical issues that plagued my Mom in her golden years. His approach to natural therapy also aided her swift recovery from shingles, the ceasing of frequent UTI’s and wound management. His attention to detail and diagnosis were spot on. I can’t recommend him more highly and although Mom passed peaceful at home at 95, she would have also recommended him.

I first met Dr Cartaxo when I broke both ankles and needed pre-admission
testing done before surgery. He came directly to my house, alleviating the need for me to travel in my condition. He immediately put me at ease, in what was - for me - a very stressful situation. He had all the equipment needed and completed all the testing right in my home. He was professional, knowledgeable and thorough - explaining everything until I understood and felt comfortable. I liked him so much that I continue to work with him for HRT therapy to this day. He also has an open, calming bedside manner and that is very important to me in a physician. I highly recommend Dr. Cartaxo.

Shortly before my mom (age 98) passed away-we met Dr. K. Cartaxo.
He came to her home to help her, he was always available by telephone to answer questions about mom's changing conditions, and to help calm my fears and sadness about her decline.
DR. K. Cartaxo's approach to meeting my mom was to introduce himself to her and treat her with respect and kindness. He addressed her by speaking and explaining to her about her health even though by then she kept her eyes closed and she no longer spoke.
Dr. K. Cartaxo was reassuring to my mom's family that "we would help her to the end together". We truly were/are thankful for this doctor's care and concern for my mom and her family as we faced her weakening and eventual passing.
Because Dr. K. Cartaxo practiced as much and as many natural ways/products as possible, side effects were much less, what a relief for mom. Even for his (this) patient of age 98, he practiced some prevention care. Our only wish-was that we had found Dr. K. Cartaxo years ago.

Dr. Cartaxo is that rare physician who combines knowledge, compassion and availability. In our case, treating an elderly patient, he came quickly to the house, diagnosed multiple problems quickly and accurately and treated her with dignity. We're very grateful for his services.
