Dr. Sara Troyer
Tell us about your basic philosophy and greatest pleasure in practicing pediatrics and adolescent medicine.
My philosophy as a pediatrician is to educate. In order for patients to achieve positive health outcomes, I feel it is paramount to help children and their families understand the habits that build a healthy life as well as to understand the conditions that affect their medical needs. I believe in encouraging patients and their caregivers to ask questions to help them understand why a given treatment is, or isn’t, recommended. I also stress preventative care, especially the role that immunizations play in preventing disease. I enjoy working with families and children on strategies for developing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
When I am not at work I enjoy reading and spending time with my husband and two daughters.
