Dr. Sara Weeks speaking with a patient.

Thinking of Health Holistically

Sara Weeks, DO, is a Family Medicine provider at Island Primary Care – 24th Street. She completed a fellowship in Osteopathic Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine where she is specialized in prenatal, postpartum and neonatal treatments. Dr. Weeks is an American Board of Family Medicine Diplomate.

In a recent interview, Dr. Weeks shared the following information about herself:

Q: What do you want patients to know about you?
A: I think about health holistically and love empowering my patients to learn strategies to improve their health and well-being. Changing some of the variables around relaxation, sleep, hydration, nutrition, exercise, mindset and community engagement can be life changing.

Q: What drew you to your specialty?
A: Both Family Medicine and Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine are holistic. Rather than focusing on a single-organ system or a subset of patients, each evaluation considers symptoms within the context of the whole person—body, mind and spirit. With this, I am able to address structural restrictions in the body which can improve pain and enhance one’s innate ability to heal.

Q: What are some of your hobbies?
A: Gardening and using my own vegetables and herbs in the meals I cook is very rewarding. This year I plan to incorporate more flowers. I also love dancing, especially Balboa, though tango looks fun, too.

Q: Why did you choose Island Health?
A: My younger sisters and I were raised on Whidbey Island; living and working in Anacortes feels like coming home!
