Dr. Sailer is a native Seattleite, attending Whitman College for his Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry and Biology and graduating with Honors from the University of Washington Medical School.

Dr. Sailer’s philosophy of care is simple. Take good care of people and treat them like you would a family member. He listens to the patient, puts them at ease, and thoroughly explains their condition so they can make an informed decision about their care.
