Dr. Karen E Earle has the following 2 specialties

  • Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism
  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

The office is a well-oiled machine that operates as smoothly as can be expected. Try to never miss an appointment. Dr. Earle had to cancel mine, but I wasn't able to get in for another two months. Dr. Earle is very knowlegable and regularly tests new projects and devices. The downside of this is that it can frequently feel as though I, as a patient, am being advised to try out sponsored products instead of receiving the best care for my individual health needs. Rowena at the front desk is great and always greeted by a smile when I walked in. She is the warmest personality in the office. The rest, including Dr. Earle, vary from dry to coldly professional. I will still see Dr. Earle next month, but am seeking to find another endocrinologist soon thereafter.
