Dr. Sarah Derksen, DVM

I was born here in Phoenix and have lived here all of my life. I attended Northern Arizona University for my undergraduate studies and graduated in 2001 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Zoology. Following graduation, I attended veterinary school at Colorado State University and earned my DVM in 2005. My primary focus since school has been private practice, but I also have experience in emergency medicine and spay/neuter/shelter medicine. My particular areas of interest include internal medicine, anesthesia, pain control, and the human-animal bond.

I moved back to Arizona following graduation from CSU to be closer to my family and joined Family VetCare in 2014. I am a new mother to a baby girl and love to spend time with her and my two nephews. Outside of my family, I enjoy spending time with my friends and my dog and two cats. I like the outdoors, movies and dining out.
