Dr. Sarah Haller originally hails from South Carolina.

Naturally, she would suffer from constant feet aches. When it got unbearable, Sarah consulted a podiatrist who provided her with an easy in-office treatment and suggestions that will help her to dance pain-free in the future.

Sarah currently lives in the small city of Hoboken, in Hudson County, New Jersey.

Wednesday Wisdom: ⁣ ⁣ Crushing Residency tips! ⁣ ⁣ 1. Schedule/ time management is number 1!! This is likely your first time running solo..By that I mean no “classes” at 8am with an attendance roster so your responsibility is all self guided.⁣ ⁣ 2. You likely have cases starting at 7:45am with a GROWING 🌱 inpatient list that you need to update attendings on as well as monitor lab work and other consults ⁣ 3. Not to mention a pager 📟 that always is going off with a consult in the ER ⁣ ⁣ These are some of the tips that I live by… and used from school, residency, fellowship and NOW! ⁣ ⁣ 1. Early Morning ☀️ Routine: I try to be in bed by 10:30pm and wake up at 5:15am to allow for a morning workout and shower. I feel this is dare I say it.. just as invigorating as a cup of ☕️ ⁣ ⁣ 2. Make a 📝 list: it keeps me accountable and on track for the day ⁣ ⁣ 3. Take a ⏱ break: a quick 2 minute breathing meditation on the flight of stairs between patient rounds is often just the mental break I need to decompress.⁣ ⁣ 4. Reward 🏆 yourself: after you accomplish all the goals and finish all the charts allow yourself to separate from work. Yes, there are papers to edit and posters to be made but in order to focus better challenge yourself to congratulate yourself on “micro wins” throughout the week! ⁣ ⁣ Do you do any of these?

When she is not working, the doctor spends her time scoping out her next adventure. Sarah is an avid yogi and also loves to read books and play golf. When she is in the mood to head outdoors, Sarah takes her Labrador for a walk in the streets of New Jersey.

Dr. Sarah Haller: Family and Dating Life

As far as her family is concerned, Sarah doesn’t prefer to divulge details about her family on her social media account. Taking into account Sarah’s beautiful ear-to-ear smile and weighted degrees, it’s a shame the podiatrist is still single. Yes, we scoured through Sarah’s account but couldn’t find one picture or caption that states otherwise. Also, as much as people who have watched the TLC show want Dr. Sarah and Dr. Brad to get together, we don’t think it’s happening anytime soon. From what we can tell, they are just really good friends. Well, we are just happy that Dr. Sarah is having the time of her life, professionally and personally.
