Kareen is an osteopathic physician. Growing up in a family of ten children in suburban Boston, she knew that she wanted to be a "family doc" since the age of eight. Her background training includes an undergraduate degree in biology from Saint Michael's College in Vermont, and a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine from the University of New England in Maine. For over twenty years, she has been committed to helping patients achieve better health. Kareen believes that being healthy is a partnership between the patient and the physician, and is committed to helping guide her patients to a healthier life. Kareen is passionately interested in preventative care, fitness, exercise, and other lifestyle choices that patients make to deal with stresses that contribute to so many illnesses. She is quick to prescribe lifestyle changes and exercise, and is slower to suggest "fix-it pharmaceuticals" which often only treat symptoms, not their underlying causes.
