  • About
  • Dr. Karen Kern is a pediatrician at Children’s Hospital After Hours Clinic. She earned her medical degree from Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans and completed residency at LSU Health Sciences Center. Dr. Karen Kern is certified by the American Board of Pediatrics. She continues to practice medicine because “I enjoy making children and their families feel better. Sometimes that may mean prescribing a medication, but often times it only takes simple reassurance that the parent is doing everything they can to help his or her child feel more comfortable during an acute illness. I like to show kids that a visit to the doctor does not necessarily have to be scary or involve painful procedures. I will attempt to provide education on their child's particular illness.”
