***Top Doctors of 2018 Honoree by Sonoma Magazine***
I am a 3rd-generation physician; the first Ob/Gyn. I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and moved to Virginia to become a U.S. citizen in my childhood. I received my BA in Biology at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, where I was a member of the Crew Team. I attended medical school at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. After medical school I moved to Santa Clara, CA where I did my Ob/Gyn residency training at Kaiser Permanente Hospital. I worked in private practice in Mountain View, CA for two years before moving to Sonoma County. I joined Kaiser Permanente in January, 2003 and am now excited to start my new adventure with the OB/GYN team at Annadel Medical Group.
I met my wife in my final year of residency. My wife and I share a love for triathlon, scuba diving, and travel. In June 2004 I completed my first Ironman distance triathlon, one month after the birth of my son. We are active in the athletic community in Santa Rosa where we swim, bike and run. My wife did her first Ironman distance triathlon, one year after the birth of our son. I believe physical fitness is an attribute to all aspects of your health.
I am often asked why I chose to become an obstetrician/gynecologist. For me, there was no question. I like the constant variation of seeing healthy women in the office, doing pelvic surgery and helping bring new life into this world. Nothing is as special as attending the birth of a woman's new baby. I enjoy getting to know new people and being involved in these special moments of their lives.
I consider it a privilege to provide medical care to my patients. It is especially powerful for me when one of my patients is asked who her doctor is and she happily responds, "Dr. Sacher is my Ob/Gyn."
I am a generalist Ob/Gyn, providing all aspects of women's healthcare but I do have areas of specialty and interest. I am a member of the high-risk obstetrics team, treating various high-risk pregnancy conditions including diabetes, high blood pressure and twins. I am also interested in new and innovative operative techniques.
I am board certified in obstetrics and gynecologist and am a fellow of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
I look forward to taking care of your health care needs from your first Gyn visit, to the birth of your child, through menopause and into your golden years.
When I am not seeing patients, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two sons in beautiful Sonoma County.
