Sarah Assem, MD
Dr. Sarah Assem graduated from the University of Arkansas with a bachelor of science in biology in 2007. She went on to earn a medical degree in 2011 from the Ross University School of Medicine. She completed her internal medicine residency at the UCLA-Kern Medical Center, serving as chief resident during her final year.
Dr. Assem enjoys working with patients to help them fully understand their illness and all of their treatment options so that they can make informed decisions about their care.
As a physician, Dr. Assem is particularly interested in teaching others because it allows her to stay up-to-date on the most current research and because she believes knowledge is one of the most valuable gifts an individual can share with others.
In addition to sharing her knowledge, Dr. Assem has donated many hours of her time. As the clinical health coordinator for the Salybia Mission Project, she helped establish multiple health clinics within rural areas of Dominica. She coordinated patient transportation, mentored students, and organized the first-ever phlebotomy teaching clinic.
Away from work, Dr. Assem loves spending time with her family and watching her little one grow. On the weekends you might find her gardening, taking photos, or hiking to one of the Pacific Northwest’s many waterfalls.
