Sara D. Turbow, MD, MPH

Associate Medical Director of the Primary Care Center

After coming to Emory for medical school, it was Grady that kept me here for internal medicine residency and as an attending. I am passionate about educating residents and medical students and enjoy working with Grady patients each day. Beyond my work in the primary care center and on the inpatient wards, I also work in the Hepatitis C clinic and supervise the internal medicine resident ambulatory education curriculum.
