Sarahs specialty is Family Medicine, completing her studies at Rockhurst University and Research College of Nursing. She tells us that she entered the healthcare field for the fulfillment and intellectual stimulation. When asked what she enjoys most about being a Nurse Practitioner, Sarah answers, Its nice to make a difference in peoples lives, even if its just making them feel heard. And I love the relationships I build with patients, she adds. According to Sarah, patient satisfaction starts with thoroughness, good communication and bedside manner. She also believes that trust and mutual respect are fundamental to the best of provider-patient relationships. Sarahs philosophy of care is that patients deserve to be heard rather than dismissed and they should be partners with their providers in driving their health. When she is not caring for patients, you will likely find Sarah reading or spending time with family. She also enjoys cooking and caring for her two young children, a daughter and son. Having grown up in Kansas City, Sarah is happy to contribute to her community and take care of those within it.
