Dr. Sarah Ghabbour

Internship & Residency: Tufts Medical Center
Medical School: Dartmouth College, Geisel School of Medicine

For as long as she can remember, Dr. Sarah Ghabbour always wanted to be a pediatrician. “I just wanted to treat children, it’s always been my life-long dream,” she explains. “To tell you the truth, I could never imagine myself doing anything else.”

As a pediatric urgent care physician at ReadyMED, Dr. Ghabbour likes being able to take care of all the different types of problems that children might have. “I like the satisfaction of being able to fix something and provide a solution quickly. The great thing about ReadyMED is that you can be seen the same day and find a resolution for what’s going on.”

When treating her patients, Dr. Ghabbour realizes that every child is part of a family and that the family is essential to good care. “I like working closely with parents and answering their questions and concerns so I can provide the guidance needed for proper treatment during the course of an illness. Good communication is really essential in pediatric medicine.”

Dr. Ghabbour had a child during her medical residency and feels that has helped her better understand the challenges that mothers often deal with. “I think it makes me more empathetic with parents and allows me to better understand the struggles they go through such as sleep deprivation, difficulties with breast-feeding, and other issues since I have experienced them myself.”

In her spare time, Dr. Ghabbour enjoys ice-skating, hiking, soccer, reading novels and listening to a good podcast. She also loves spending time with her family.
