Sarah Hurley is a Physician Assistant who would be immediately recognized by her current patients for her welcoming smile and great insight. She is open to seeing new patients as well, as part of the team at Wiscasset Family Medicine.
I thought it would be great to give her a chance to tackle five questions:
Dr. Linville: Sarah, where are you from and what are your favorite parts of Maine?
Sarah: I am from coastal Connecticut where I was lucky enough to spend much of my childhood on a little secluded beach that was my playground. My family also owned a small ski cabin in Vermont where I was able to grow up skiing the local mom and pop ski hills. The ocean and the mountains are the elements that make me feel whole and free and Maine has them both! A couple favorite spots are Simpsons Point in Brunswick (where I live) and Saddleback Ski Mountain.
Dr. Linville: How do you like to stay healthy in the winter?
Sarah: Fresh air, steamy showers and honey as a general cure all!
Dr. Linville: What do you like most about working at WFM?
Sarah: My fellow practitioners enrich my days with their knowledge and friendship. Wiscasset Family Medicine feels like home, aesthetically and emotionally, and this carries over into the personal care we are able to provider our patients. I also relish the privilege of welcoming new babies to the practice and watching them thrive.
Dr. Linville: Where would you go on a warm weather trip if you could snap your fingers and arrive?
Sarah: My husband, our toddler daughter and I travelled to a little island off the coast of Belize this past spring. There were no cars, few tourists and a totally laid back and present vibe. We stayed in a beach bungalow and rode rusty old bikes with my daughter in the handlebar basket. My daughter said it best when we arrived and she said “Mommy, my body feels good here”. I agree.
Dr. Linville: Is there anything else you’d like to share with the readers of our website?
Sarah: I am passionate about Women’s Health! I welcome our female patients to come chat with me about contraception, sexual and reproductive health.
