Dr. Sharon Crowell is a Board Certified Internal Medicine physician. She began her career in health care as a registered pharmacist. She received her Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Texas Health Sciences Center at San Antonio in 1983, and completed her Internal Medicine residency at the Medical College of Virginia.
Dr. Crowell joined The Vancouver Clinic in 1993. She was one of the first physicians to see patients at our Salmon Creek location. She volunteered to relocate her practice to Fisher’s Landing six years later; many of her patients followed her there. After 19 years of office-based general Internal Medicine practice, she transitioned to caring for patients in a local skilled nursing facility, where she provides the care they need on site to speed their recovery and return home. As a cancer survivor, she understands what it means to be a patient, and uses her experiences to help others navigate their own health challenges.
In addition to her leadership role as the Board Chair of The Vancouver Clinic, Dr. Crowell is active in her church, singing in the choir and traveling with the youth group on their annual mission trip. She cherishes her time with her twin sons, who will graduate from high school in 2016. When she can find a few minutes, she enjoys gardening, reading, salmon fishing, and testing new recipes.
