Karyn Hughes



Dr. Karyn Hughes is board certified in pediatrics. She completed her pediatrics residency program as well as her chief residency at the University of Connecticut/CT Children’s Medical Center. Upon completing her education and training, Dr. Hughes returned home to the Capital Region to join CapitalCare Pediatrics Troy. She was always drawn to the resiliency of children when they’re sick and watching each one recover to a healthier version of themselves.

One thing Dr. Hughes truly loves is seeing her patients’ personalities emerge and grow as they become older and develop from infancy to adolescence.

Having a special interest in lactation and breastfeeding support, Dr. Hughes became a Certified Lactation Counselor to further help her patients and their families.

Outside of her work, Dr. Hughes enjoys crafting, kayaking in the warmer months, and spending as much time as possible with her husband and three children.
