Get to know Family Medicine Physician Dr. Sara Weeks
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:
What do you want patients to know about you?
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.
What drew you to your specialty?
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.
What are some of your hobbies?
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.
Why did you choose Island Health?
My younger sisters and I were raised on Whidbey Island; living and working in Anacortes feels like coming home!
