"Compassionate," "caring" and "conscientious" are some of the words used to describe Dr. Karlsson by her colleagues. She believes that optimal healthcare comes from providing a nonjudgmental and nurturing environment emphasizing education and preventive care. Dr. Karlsson received her undergraduate degree from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, her medical degree from the University of Iowa, and completed her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Cook County Hospital in Chicago. She has supplemented her education by working with women in a rape crisis center, with women and their children in a drug addiction treatment center, and by being an aide in a rehabilitation home for the elderly.
