About

"I was born and raised in Iowa, but have had the privilege of training at excellent institutions throughout the Midwest. When University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics' Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology offered me my dream job, I was honored. I am extremely excited to bring my unique training and experience to care for obstetric and gynecologic patients in my home state, as well as to help train upcoming physicians who will do the same." — Sarah Shaffer
