SARAH WHALEN, PA-C

My Philosophy

I was born and raised in Sacramento. After finishing college at Cal Poly and working in San Luis Obispo, I came back to Sacramento for PA school at UC Davis and decided to make this my permanent home. I love being close to family and friends and I enjoy working with a community that I’ve been a part of for my whole life. I strive to connect with every patient on both a professional and personal level. I enjoy learning about my patients beyond just their skin care needs.
