SARAH WHALEN, PA-C

My Philosophy

I believe in providing care that is tailored to each individual because we are all unique and important in many different ways. The skin is our outermost layer and what is most visible to ourselves and others. Therefore, I want to provide care so that all my patients are comfortable and confident in their skin. The skin is the largest organ in the body so I believe it is of utmost importance to keep our skin healthy and happy. It truly makes me ecstatic to watch transformations in the right direction and to see smiles on my patients’ faces when they are pleased with the progress we’ve made. I truly love conversing with all my patients and their families, and genuinely want to learn about each and every one of them on a personal and professional level.
