Colorado has been home for most of Dr. Sarah Benjamin's life. She grew up in Loveland and attended Colorado State University.
After graduating from CSU with a bachelor's degree in Zoology, her interest in podiatric medicine led her to obtain her Doctor of Podiatric Medicine degree from the California College of Podiatric Medicine.
Her three year residency program at the Veterans Hospital in Palo Alto, California gave her a broad understanding of conservative as well as surgical treatment of all foot related disorders. She also had the opportunity to rotate through Stanford Hospital and lecture poditatric topics to Stanford Medical Students. Dr. Benjamin served on the Colorado Podiatric Board from July 2007 to October 2009.
Sarah has trained for marathons and can relate to runners and running injuries.
Her goals are and have always been to give the best care and treatment to patients. She enjoys all aspects of practice including surgery, trauma, diabetic wound care, plantar fasciitis, and ingrown nails.
