My name is Sarah Konopnicki. I am originally from Long Island, NY, however my parents immigrated from Russia, and I grew up with Russian as my first language. I received by Bachelor of Science in Biology from Stony Brook University in New York and earned my medical degree at Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Colorado.  

I fell in love with Family Medicine as a specialty because of its breadth of practice and the privilege of forming long-term relationships with my patients. As a Family Medicine physician, I have the unique opportunity to improve not only the health of an individual but an entire community. I met my husband in medical school, and we were extremely excited to couples match at UTMB, as our respective programs provided us with strong academics, patient diversity, and lack of snow. My career interests include full spectrum practice including inpatient and outpatient practice, academics, women’s health, and addiction medicine.  

As I progress through my training, I am excited to provide comprehensive, compassionate care to the Galveston community and to continue learning from my patients, co-residents, and attending faculty.
