Her new role and duties at Westview will be integral to the continuing quality of care that Westview’s reputation is built upon. Working collaboratively with the facility’s Medical Director, Dr. Joseph Botta and local physicians, Kerri’s expertise will help provide the best suitable outcomes for the patients and residents entrusted in the care of Westview. With advanced practice experiences in primary care, internal medicine and orthopedics, she’s able to offer an array of assessments, treatment modalities and referrals within the community.
“I most enjoy the camaraderie and mutual support of Westview staff and administration,” stated Sauer. “I find the home-like feeling of the facility to be very therapeutic and I’m looking forward to supplementing the Westview team with all that my prior experience, training and education has to offer.”
