Getting to Know Dr. Sarah Haller

Dr Haller

At Essex Union Podiatry, we are excited to be adding Dr. Sarah E. Haller to our ranks. We sat down with Dr. Haller to learn more about her and what she has to offer our patients.

Q. What inspired you to become a podiatrist?

A. As a child, I was a ballet dancer for 15 years and on pointe for four. After daily practice, my feet would ache incessantly. We found a podiatrist who helped me with a simple in-office procedure and recommendations for the future, allowing me to dance pain-free.

Q. Is there any current research in your field that interests you?

A. Yes. As a fellow, I was involved in a multitude of ongoing projects involving a wide variety of topics ranging from trauma to nail pathology. I have continued this pursuit of research to share valid studies that improve the daily lives of patients everywhere.
