Sarah Vepraskas, MD is a board-certified pediatrician that cares for hospitalized children. She feels privileged to be able to provide healthcare for children and educate patients and their families during what can be a stressful time in their lives. Her care philosophy is a team approach that is patient and family centered, as she believes all team members play an essential role in improving the health of a hospitalized child. She finds it rewarding to care for children that can initially be very ill and then are able to quickly get better and return to their normal activities after receiving excellent medical care.
She enjoys working with residents and medical students and teaching them not only about inpatient pediatric medicine, but also just how fun taking care of kids can be. One of her favorite parts of teaching is helping medical students apply the knowledge they have learned in their classes to understand both their patients’ conditions and treatment plans while in the hospital.
