Karen Meyer M.D.
Dr. Karen Meyer is a pediatrician at Methodist Physicians Clinic Hawthorne Court. She attended medical school at the Univeristy of Nebraska Medical Center followed by her pediatrics residency training at the Akron Children's Hospital in Ohio.
As a young girl, Dr. Meyer never expected she would become a doctor. Growing up in a family of educators, she was initially set to become a teacher. That all changed, however, during the fifth grade. As her class studied the systems of the body, Dr. Meyer became fascinated by how they all worked together. Wanting to learn more, she decided she would one day pursue a career in medicine.
Dr. Meyer emphasizes the importance of trust in patient relationships. She believes that without a trust, a patient relationship cannot exist. It is important for her to assure children and their parents that they can come to her with any questions or concerns they have, and they will in turn receive open and honest advice.
In her free time, Dr. Meyer enjoys spending time with her family. She frequently attends her children’s various sporting activities while finding time to be an active member of her church.
