About Me

Born and raised in New Jersey, Dr. Janet Karpiak is a graduate of UMDNJ- New Jersey Medical School. Dr. Karpiak moved to Connecticut to complete a combined Internal Medicine/Pediatrics residency program at Yale University School of Medicine, and made Connecticut her new home. After 15 years in private practice in the Trumbull- Stratford area, caring for up to 4 generations of families, she joined the hospitalist team at Norwalk Hospital, to allow for more family time. Initially on the adult team, Dr. Karpiak quickly became involved in helping to set up a similar program in Pediatrics, where she continued for over 8 years. Missing the long term supportive relationships of outpatient primary care, Dr. Karpiak joined the staff at Norwalk Community Health Center where she continued to support and care for many families she met while working as a hospitalist. Dr. Karpiak has also been a member of the Norwalk Board of Health since 2010, and has been a medical examiner for the Greater Norwalk Child Advocacy Center since 2008. Dr. Karpiak is thrilled to be joining the team at Health Child who share similar ideals for a family centered practice. She has always enjoyed teaching, whether a child about their health, or medical students, residents in training, as well as other healthcare providers to work with families toward a common goal. Dr. Karpiak is a “hands on” person who enjoys many handcrafts, including knitting, crocheting, counted cross stitch (preferably on linen), and has designed a number projects from scratch. She also enjoys gardening and walking, and hopes to explore as many trails in Connecticut as possible.
