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
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
When I am not seeing patients, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two
sons in beautiful Sonoma County.
