Specialties

Dr. KAREN L LEUNG has the following 3 SPECIALTIES

Anesthesiology
Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

More about Dr. KAREN L LEUNG

Welcome to My Doctor Online, a web site that my colleagues and I developed to make it easier for you to take care of your healthcare needs. On this site you will find answers to many of your questions about my clinical practice. Also included are several online features that will allow you to e-mail me, check your laboratory results and refill prescriptions. I hope you find its content informative and useful. Background I come from a family of physicians. I have my father to thank for my enthusiasm towards patient care. My dad is a family practice doctor in Texas. Between my father, my mother (a nurse), my younger sister (a pediatrician), and my younger brother (also an obstetrician-gynecologist), most people can only imagine what dominated our dinner table conversations. I was born in Canada and grew up in northern Ontario where winters are harsh and summers are short. One of my earliest memories as a child was weekends when my dad took me along for patient rounds, followed by Dairy Queen ice cream cones! To escape the Canadian weather, our family moved to Texas where I finished high school. I graduated Phi Beta Kappa (for scholastic achievement) and Magna Cum Laude from the University of Dallas, a small liberal arts school, with a major in biology and biochemistry. I earned my medical degree from the University of Texas Southwestern in 1993 and started my residency taking care of women at Parkland Hospital in Dallas, with over 14,000 births a year. To be in the same location as my husband, Tony Chu (where he also was completing his residency in oral maxillofacial surgery), I completed my advanced training in obstetrics and gynecological medicine and surgery at University of Texas Houston. Before leaving private practice in Houston for Sonoma County, I was featured performing a delivery “live” on Good Morning America in February 2001. My patient happened to be the only patient delivering at exactly 7:00 in the morning in Houston. She wanted to share the experience not only with Charlie Gibson but the rest of the country. The other two "live" sites included Boston and the University of Texas Southwestern in Dallas, where I trained. Thereafter, it was amazing that so many of my patients, high school & college friends, colleagues, and former teachers watched and shared that special delivery.
