Karen Moreland, PA-C
Certified Physician Assistant
Karen Moreland, PA-C, joins our practice bringing with her over 5 years of experience in medical and cosmetic dermatology. Most recently, Karen practiced with Dr. Lydia Parker, a dermatologist at the Parker Skin and Aesthetics Clinic, in Cleveland, Ohio. Prior to her time in Cleveland, Karen practiced with Dr. Vivian Bucay in San Antonio, Texas. With Dr. Bucay, Karen expanded her cosmetic dermatologic experience working with many injectables, various laser treatments, and a vast array of skincare products. As a medical dermatologic provider, she is able to diagnose and treat many skin conditions, and also perform procedures such as biopsies, cryotherapy, photodynamic therapy, intralesional injections, and excisions.
Before beginning her career in dermatology, Karen previously lived in Fort Worth, where she started her PA career. Karen first worked in an internal medicine practice where she gained her initial experience in diagnosing and treating patients with many diverse medical conditions. She then joined Plastic Surgery Texas where she began not only her cosmetic injectable experience, but also her medical dermatologic experience through her comprehensive care for patients undergoing skin cancer reconstruction.
Karen earned her Master’s degree in Physician Assistant Studies from the University of North Texas Heath Science Center (UNTHSC) in Forth Worth, Texas. Karen earned her Bachelor’s degree in Business at Texas Tech University, where she competed in Division I Soccer for the Red Raiders.
Karen notes that she particularly enjoys being involved in patient care and strives to maintain long-term relationships. In fact, Karen was voted “Most Compassionate” by her peers at Plastic Surgery Texas.
During her time away from the office, Karen enjoys exercising, listening to live music, cheering on her Dallas Cowboys, and, of course, spending time with her husband, Justin, and their two girls. They are certainly enjoying being back in Fort Worth where their story began years ago!
Karen is certified by the National Commission of Certification for Physician Assistants and licensed by the Texas State Board of Medical Examiners. Her professional associations include:
