Dr. Karen E English has the following 1 specialty
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Highly disappointed. As an RN and a Nursing Director of a pediatric home health agency myself, I was highly disappointed at this office's lack of communication. and lack of professionalism. Dr. Karen English got on the phone herself to tell me I would be charged for a visit I missed, when I tried to explain I had called for two days straight and no one ever picked up the phone and there was no answering service or place to leave a message, she cut me short and continued to talk about the bill I would receive. I also could never get a call back regarding faxed paperwork or a speech referral Dr. English was supposed to call me about. After the Dr talked to me in this way, I scheduled with another pediatrician and called them back and said I had taken my business elsewhere. Astounded by the lack of bedside manner from this MD. Mom's- the drive to Bastrop or Austin is worth it to avoid this pediatrician for your kiddos.
My son contracted MRSA Staph from his circumcision from another doctors office (not Dr. English's. I brought him in to Dr. English's office after my son getting a high fever and his "area" getting rock hard. She immediately saw him and told us to take him to Dell Children's Hospital. She even called ahead so that we could get right in. She was concerned about him and even called us to find out how our son was. Our son is fine now because of Dr. English's fast and promtness. And I am thankful for her to see our son even though it was after hours.She is a great and caring doctor.
