Dr. Karen E Tipler has the following 2 specialties
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.
- Emergency Medicine
An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.

We saw Dr. Tipler at urgent care when our 1year old son was unable to stand after a bad fall. We had been to urgent care earlier in the day and had been told he had nothing but a contusion. Dr. Tipler was very professional and extremely caring. She seemed to have a lot of knowledge, completed a full examination and suspected a fracture, which it turned out to be. She was engaging with my son, encouraged me to hold or nurse him while she examined him. She allowed my son to play with her instruments to distract him and spoke to him kindly. I felt that she was sensitive to my and my child's feelings and made sure to ensure our comfort. I highly recommend this doctor and am considering switching to her as our family doctor.
