Raised in Houston since the age of one, Dr. Karen Zorrilla is a graduate of Stratford High School who ventured out of state to North Carolina to complete her undergraduate degree at Duke University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology in 1989. From there, she returned to Houston to complete her medical degree and Pediatric residency at Baylor College of Medicine, where she was honored to serve as one of the Neonatology Chief Residents. She completed her formal medical training in 1996 and has practiced Pediatrics in West Houston since then, taking off a few years while her daughter was in elementary school.
Dr. Zorrilla has been working on a part-time basis at Great Kids Pediatrics since 2009 and is a familiar face at the practice. Dr. Zorrilla has now joined our Great Physician staff as a permanent physician working Wednesday through Friday.
In her spare time, she enjoys spending her time with her daughter (when home from college or visiting her there), her parents, and her friends. She also loves traveling, Latin and ballroom dancing, cooking, and playing with her lovable Havanese dogs.
