Dr. Karen Powers is an expert in pediatric neurology with a special interest in pediatric headaches and pediatric neuro-oncology. Although she treats all pediatric patients with general neurological conditions, she has a niche referral base of pediatric pain management cases.

Dr. Powers utilizes a caring approach to patient care:  “I intentionally strive to make a connection with the patient and their family. I try to foster a working relationship with them,” she states. She has advanced training in both general pediatrics and neurology and is an advocate for treating children with neurological illnesses and disabilities.
