Biography

Sarah Reed, PA-C, was inspired to become a physician assistant after volunteering in a free urgent care clinic, where she realized the importance of access to primary care. "I enjoy helping my patients reach and maintain their health goals, while helping them make informed choices about their health," she says. "Working as a team alongside patients and other health care professionals is essential to providing our patients the best care they can receive."

After completing her bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Wash., Sarah earned her master's degree in physician assistant studies from Oregon Health & Science University in Portland. 

Sarah was born and raised in Minnesota and lived in Tacoma for 10 years before relocating to Portland. In her free time, she enjoys long-distance running, skiing, hiking, yoga and spending time with her husband and dog.

I was told by the medical assistant or nursing assistant that I will have a flu vaccine but nobody came back to give the vaccine. I waited at the examination room more or less than 10 minutes after being seen by the Physician Assistant Reed,S. and nobody came back to me after I was seen by the examining doctor. I went out of the examination room and saw two medical assistant or nursing assistant sitting and ask them how long shall I wait for my papers. It is only when I asked them when they prepared my papers and I didn't received and flu vacc at all.

I really adore Sarah. She's very friendly, helpful and she always takes time to answer my questions. I'm sure she has got to be very busy, but I never feel this way when I see her. She makes good eye contact, listens carefully, and is consistently cheerful and helpful. I never feel hurried or rushed, and I believe that she provides me excellent care. She is very very good at her job.
