Dr. Sarah L. Stevens, MD

Pediatrics | Female | 54 years old

I try to take the approach of listening to what the teenagers have to say about whatever they have come to me for. I try to understand what they are worried about or what they want to change. I help them problem solve on how to make that change happen. I include parents, but I work to help the teenagers take an active role in their own health care. I try to help teenagers and their parents - or caregivers - navigate their changing relationship. I try not to "tell them what they have to do." That won't result in lasting change of habits, behaviors or ways of thinking. I also work to help young people with chronic health conditions take more control of their conditions instead of letting the health condition control them. I always try to help teenagers see the positives in their lives - and to recognize their own strengths and resilience in the face of difficult circumstances.Read more

Took my concerns seriously. Thoroughly investigated several possible diagnoses by ordering bloodwork and other testing. Listened carefully and asked follow-up questions to get to root of concerns.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
