Sarah Faria is a nurse practitioner at Sturdy Memorial Associates at Plainville - Urgent Care. She initially started her career with a degree in communications and worked in health-related public relations. She learned a lot about patient experiences and the complex medical system, later deciding that she wanted to go back to school to become an advocate for patients and help them navigate the healthcare system.
As a nurse practitioner in urgent care, Sarah believes in listening to her patients and treating them as a whole and not just their illness or symptoms. She works to educate families on how to prevent illnesses from happening and connect them with resources to help improve their overall health. At an appointment with Sarah, patients can expect her to listen to their needs and receive the best care possible in an urgent care setting.
Sarah finds it rewarding to educate people and help them understand their options for diagnostics and treatments. In her free time, Sarah spends time with her family - her husband, two young children and dog. She also enjoys coaching her kids recreation soccer teams and volunteering at their school.
