Sarah Kent is an Oregon native, originally from West Linn. She attended the University of Idaho on a volleyball scholarship where she earned a degree in Exercise Science and a minor in Spanish. She completed her Master of Physician Assistant studies at Oregon Health & Science University and has worked mostly in Family Medicine since graduating. Her resume is long as she has worked across the country during her husband’s training; she has practiced in Rhode Island, Illinois, Idaho, and Oregon. She and her family are now moving to Bend from Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. These experiences across the country have offered excellent opportunities to treat people of all ages, backgrounds, ethnicities, genders, and socioeconomic statuses. She is very passionate about Family Medicine and believes that preventative, integrated, and patient-centered care is the key to a healthy life. Growing with an individual, and their family, is one of the greatest rewards in primary care. While she has cared for all ages, birth to end of life, she has a special interest in pediatrics, adolescent care, women’s health and preventative medicine.
Her husband, Dr. Joe Kent, is an Interventional Spine and Pain physician at Desert Orthopedics. They have two children and a doodle-mutt, Rainier. She enjoys camping, hiking, biking, skiing, disc golf, volleyball and a good cup of coffee. She is looking forward to exploring all that Central Oregon offers with her kids and husband.
