Say Hello to Sarah Witesman, PA-C!
Our newest Physician's Assistant, Sarah developed a passion for OB/GYN while on her clinical rotations in rural upstate New York. She believes all patients should have control of their own reproductive and sexual health. Whether it’s help with contraception, conception, routine gynecologic care, or there is a problem that needs addressing, she will be an advocate and a partner in your health and wellness. She has a special interest in addressing sexual dysfunction as well as pelvic and vaginal pain, both chronic and acute. In addition to seeing patients in the clinic, Sarah assists with surgical cases and works with the team of physicians and physician assistants caring for patients admitted to the hospital.
Sarah recently relocated to Grants Pass and joins Women’s Health Center after practicing in a busy OB/GYN clinic for more than five years outside of Salt Lake City. She looks forward to getting to know all the wonderful things that southern Oregon has to offer!
