Karen Hardy, MD

  • Karen Ann Hardy
  • “I strive to make personal connections with each and every child I see.”

I wanted to help others, especially children because they are the future of the world. As an intern I saw patients affected by cystic fibrosis who touched my heart, and knew I wanted to become a pediatric pulmonologist.

I have two children of my own, but I feel like I have thousands of children. I get to see my patients from the time they are very young all the way into adulthood, experiencing each stage of childhood development alongside the family. My ultimate goal is to teach each child about their illness and how to deal with the medical system so that as they grow, they learn to be responsible for their own care.

It is a privilege to meet a new family, learn about their concerns and figure out how I can help make things better. I want every family to know Im going to work with them. I strive to make personal connections with each and every child I see. Whether they are 3 or 13 or 19, I want each child to know I am their doctor.
