About Sara Rourke, MD

I chose medicine for the long-lasting relationships and connections with my patients. Families make being a pediatrician the best job in the world. I can't imagine doing anything else. I believe in family-centered care; no one knows a child better than their parent or guardian. My job as a physician is to listen to patients and their families and use that information, coupled with my medical knowledge and experience, to promote and optimize each child's health and wellness. It is such a privilege to contribute to the healthy growth and development of children. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time camping, hiking and exploring outdoors with my husband and our children.

Dr. Rourke is simply the best. She is patient and kind and appologized for our experience with the intake nurse who appeared to be burnt out and hostile.

We loved meeting Dr. Rourke for the first time! And we are super excited to have her be our new baby's pediatrician. She was warm, knowledgeable, kind and intelligent. She answered all our questions and made us feel at ease.

Dr. Rourke is a great doctor. She does not rush through the apt. and takes time to listen to all our concerns. We would definitely recommend her to other parents.
