I am super grateful to have Sara as my care provider. She is very kind and knowledgeable. It is not always easy to talk about what needs to be talked about in a women's health appointment, but she makes me feel comfortable, safe, and not judged.

*Dr. Thorson is an AMAZING dr. She makes you feel like you and her are a team working on your health rather than just being told what to do. SO SO SO glad I found her!

I grew up in Olympia, Washington, and studied public health at the University of Washington in Seattle. After a year working abroad in Turkey, I moved to Pennsylvania for medical school. Eager to return to the beautiful Pacific Northwest, I completed my residency training in Vancouver, Washington. My husband and I made Portland our home in 2016.

About my practice

It is an honor and a joy to be a family physician. I welcome patients from all walks of life. I love to treat all ages — from infants to the elderly — as well as women during the exciting time of pregnancy. Using my background in integrative medicine, I partner with my patients to strive for holistic wellness, not just the absence of disease. I also perform a number of in-office procedures, including those pertaining to skin, nails, and women’s health.

How I thrive

In my free time, I enjoy family dinners, running, gardening, and playing guitar badly.
