I go by whatever my patients are most comfortable calling me! I am just as happy to be called Kara as Dr. Aiton.
In medical school, I was sure orthopedics was my calling...until I delivered my first baby during my third year. From that moment onward, I knew obstetrics would be part of my focus!
I love maternity care for so many reasons. I feel extremely privileged to be part of people's birth story, and never tire of the tears and shouts of joys when a baby safely delivers.
In the rare circumstance when a story doesn't have a happy ending, I feel equally privileged to provide compassionate care and comfort to families in their time of need.
When I am not delivering babies or other related work, I can be found; enjoying time with my hubby, and two spunky daughters. We love the outdoors and take every opportunity to enjoy camping, hiking, mountain biking, skiing, surfing and so on! I absolutely love what I do and am so fortunate to do it with the full support of my family behind me!
