Sarah E. Stapleton, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I have always wanted to have a practice where I am able to treat patients as if they were members of my family. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, I am thrilled to have the time to get to know each one of my patients in a way that lets us partner in all aspects of wellness.
