Karen Sykes - Nurse

Karen Sykes
Nurse

Karen is originally from Elkhorn City deep in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky. After high school she attended Eastern Kentucky University before deciding to move back to the mountains and find her true calling in life, nursing. After graduating from the nursing program at Mayo Tech in 1982 her career spanned all areas of nursing including but not limited to, geriatrics, pediatrics, cardiac, ICU, Emergency room, Neurology and working with a specialized IV team. She came to Lexington Diagnostic Center in 1999 to “help out for a couple of days” while they searched for a full-time nurse. After working with the LDC staff for only a short time she knew this is where she needed to be.

Karen and the LDC team will take on any challenge. Her specialty is patient care. She treats every patient as if they are her only patient of the day with warmth and compassion. She is particularly patient with patients who have special needs such as infants, children, mentally challenged or hospital patients.

Karen’s Hobby is catering to the “wants” of her grandchildren, Christian. Jordyn and Gracie.
