Sara Kertz, DO, was born in St. Louis and used her education as an opportunity to see different areas of the United States. After graduating with honors from the University of Rochester, Dr. Kertz worked as a microbiologist before attending Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences. After a pediatric internship at Oklahoma State University, Dr. Kertz completed a pediatric residency where she knew she wanted to put down roots - in Phoenix.
Dr. Kertz loves that pediatrics is a family affair. "I can encourage and guide not only my young patients to live healthy and happy lives, but their families too," Dr. Kertz says. "It really does take a village - we are in this together!" She has a special interest in wellness and support for newborns through adolescence.
In her free time, Dr. Kertz enjoys spending time outdoors and playing games with her two sons, her husband and their poodle. She also enjoys traveling and cooking.
