About Karen Steffer, M.D.

Why did you choose to specialize in Gastroenterology?

I have a family history of colon cancer and colon polyps and as a gastroenterologist I am able to prevent colon cancer on a daily basis. Additionally, while GI diseases are extremely common, each patient’s symptoms and treatment course are individualized; working with patients to find a successful treatment plan is extremely rewarding.

Do you have a specialty of interest within GI?

As a female gastroenterologist I have am particularly aware and accustom to treating women with gastrointestinal diseases. I also treat general hepatology conditions such as chronic viral hepatitis, Autoimmune hepatitis (AIH), Primary Biliary Cholangitis (PBC), and steatohepatitis (“fatty liver disease”).

Where did you study?

Undergraduate: Baylor University, Medical School: University of Texas Medical Branch, Internal Medicine Residency and training in Gastroenterology and Hepatology: Baylor University Medical Center.

What certifications do you hold?

Board Certified in Internal Medicine, Gastroenterology and Hepatology.

What do you and your family enjoy doing in your spare time?

Life is busy with my husband and three small children. We enjoy traveling (when possible), outdoor sports and spending time with our family and friends in the area.

Do you have any special honors or recognition in your medical career that you would like to share?

Honor society (AOA) in my medical school class. Resident of the Year during my Internal Medicine Residency.

Please list your professional affiliations.

Texas Society of Gastroenterology and Endoscopy, American College of Gastroenterology and American Gastroenterological Association.

Reviews

I am very comfortable with Dr. Stiffer. She is very forthright about what to expect with the procedures. Plus she reviews past procedures and the findings. It is apparent that she is well thought of by her peers as she was recommended by several doctors.

Runs like a well oiled machine. Everyone from the front desk to the one walking you out is very compassionate and caring. Very efficient and great facility.

Excellent experience with Dr. Steffer and the staff at Lone Star Endoscopy Southlake. From the pre-procedure calls, prescription help, on-site intake to patient care and follow-up: every interaction was great! Special shout out to my nurse Stephanie who is clearly living in her purpose! She made me feel seen, heard and totally comfortable - not the easiest thing to do especially for my procedure! Thank you!
