About Me

Becoming a doctor was such a perfect match for me that I never really considered other options, despite having no physicians in my family or close circles.

Practicing internal medicine fits me because I’m a compassionate and generous listener who loves math and science, as well as a good challenge. Since no one can know everything in medicine, I enjoy being an important member of the team that manages challenging patient situations. Getting to know patients well over their lifetime helps me treat each person according to their values and needs.

As a general internist, I ensure that my patients get well, stay well and understand all aspects of their health care.

My deepest satisfaction during my workday comes when patients tell me that something that I did or said changed their lives and improved their quality of life. I’m also proud when medical students and residents tell me that I’ve changed the way that they practice medicine or how they live their lives for the better.

    Dr Sarah Jonaus is the best example of a competent, caring and attentive PCP I could give. She is amazing. She listens intently and she responds to my questions and any other issues with the utmost knowledge and care. She has been right with me through some really difficult circumstances this year as I was caring for my aging parents who were also her patients. She not only cared for their needs with excellence, she cared for me as well, always considering my physical and emotional well-being as a caregiver. This is why I drive an hour and a half to see her. I would recommend her to anyone.
