Hello! My name is Sarah Zimmerman and I’m the new hospital-based Physician Assistant with Oakland Macomb OBGYN. I am so excited to be joining your wonderful team of mid-level practitioners (Certified Nurse Midwives, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants), the twelve (!) great doctors and all the amazing staff that make this such a great practice!
A little bit of my background (the speed dating portion of this post): I graduated from University of Detroit Mercy with my Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies in 2008. Prior to that I was a Case Manager/Social Worker in the hospital and free clinic settings. As a P.A, I have always been in surgical practice, assisting in all disciplines of surgery and specializing in minimally invasive laparoscopy, primarily in pelvic medicine (Gynecology and Urology). I’ve worked for Beaumont and St. John Providence Hospital systems, but I spent the first four years of my career here at Troy Beaumont and am so happy to be back! I grew up on the west side of the state and my husband and I have been in the Detroit area now for 9 years. We have two fantastic little minions who keep us always running and laughing.
I am very passionate about women’s health and am glad to join this group of skilled and dedicated practitioners as an extension of their excellent care. Your MD’s and Midwives rotate providing in-house care here in the hospital, and I will always be here, working side-by-side with them.
In addition, I will be blogging for the group. I plan to keep you up to date on what is happening in the hospital, provide you some insights into your practitioners (I’ll pass along any dirt I get on Dr. Love, no worries), and give you community and health news updates.
For example, I’m currently working on a post about influenza and Ebola called “Infectious Diseases, Should I Just Never Leave My House Ever Again?!” – stay tuned for that. I would LOVE to hear feedback or specific questions and topics you’d like me to address.
It’s so nice to e-meet you all! Please say hello when I see you in person and don’t forget to send me your questions and ideas for topics!
