Specialties

Dr. Lynne K Karlson has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    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.

Dr. Karlson with her expertise was able to diagnose my daughters problem right off the bat after being to the ER TWICE!!She made us feel comfortable as we never thought the problem was a side effect of a drug, and ER doctor never questioned it either. Thank god I kept on pushing to see a doctor. She was the best and made us feel so relieved and to come back or call her if we had anymore questions. My daughter loves her now anything is wrong she says call Dr. Karlson, she'll know.
