Sarah Elmer

Sarah was born in southern Indiana and attended Butler University in Indianapolis, IN. There, she completed her Bachelor of Health Sciences and Master of Physician Assistant Studies in just five years and graduated summa cum laude from the College of Health Sciences. Sarah holds certification with the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants and is licensed by the Texas Board of Physician Assistant Examiners. She also holds certifications for facial aesthetics with AestheticSAFE and the American Academy of Procedural Medicine, and completed a mentorship on Botox/Filler injections. Sarah worked at the University of Chicago for six years in general surgery and reconstructive plastic surgery; this is where she first started working with DIEP flap patients.

Sarah joined Dr. Potter’s team in 2017 after moving to Austin, TX. She has a passion for women’s health and working in the operating room/suturing; her favorite thing about this work is “giving women a part of themselves back.” Dr. Potter and the entire team are a fully patient-oriented practice; driven by excellent patient outcome and experiences. Sarah finds the most motivating part is when patients tell her that their course was improved by having them as part of their surgical team. The level of care that is provided at this office is top-quality and patients have frequently said that this is what sets this practice apart from other providers. Sarah reflected, “The work is not always easy, but working with such an excellent team and seeing the high level of patient satisfaction keeps me going.”
