Dr. Karol's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Karol "Dr Karol has been a practicing internist for the past 22 years, 18 of them in Westport. Originally from Brooklyn, New York, she attended Stuyvesant High School and later Brown University where she majored in English Literature. She studied medicine at The Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, where she met her husband, Ian Karol, a local radiologist. After finishing her internal medicine residency at Greenwich Hospital, she briefly practiced in the Bronx, Pennsylvannia and Hamden and then settled in Westport, where she has been since 1999. Dr Karol joined Internal Medicine Associates of Westport in 1999, and has practiced continuously since that time, while simultaneously raising her three children, Alex age 22, Josh 18 and Zach 15. She has been a Castle Connelly Top Doc and has been named a Fairfield County Top Doc for the past 3 years. She is not only board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine, but has been recertified twice since completing her residency. She also maintains an active membership in the American College of Physicians. In addition to her love of medicine, Dr. Karol has many hobbies and non medical interests. She has 2 dogs and loves to walk them. She is an avid exercise enthusiast, vegetable gardener, orchid cultivator, quilter, book lover and novice Mah-Jong player. Her medical interests include endocrine issues, especially weight management and obesity treatment. She is comfortable with a wide variety of women's health issues and the diagnosis and treatment of complex medical conditions. Her goal is to treat as much as possible with healthy lifestyle changes and to prevent small problems from turning into larger ones by being proactive. She also appreciates the individual needs of each patient, and when making recommendations does not use a one size fits all approach."
