Amelia Sattler

Family medicine doctor

Bio:   I am an ebullient family physician with special interests in medical education, adolescent medicine, mental health and preventive care. I earned my undergraduate degree in psychology at the University of Puget Sound and enjoy working with patients to explore and overcome mental and emotional challenges that may contribute to disease.

My medical training began while seated around the dinner table in rural northern California where, as a child, I was inspired by the joy that my parents experienced working as family practitioners. In pursuit of formal medical training I ventured from the west coast to Mayo Medical School in Rochester, Minnesota where I was “raised” in a culture of medicine that prioritizes the needs of patients. I strongly believe in and strive to integrate and propagate this philosophy of care.

After surviving four winters and meeting my husband, I happily returned to San Jose, California where I completed residency in Family Medicine at the San Jose-O’Connor Family Medicine Residency Program. During residency I participated in the O’Connor-Stanford “Leaders in Education” Residency Pathway (OSLER) where I began formal training in medical education, working with Stanford clinician educators and medical students. I continued this training as a fellow in the Rathmann Family Foundation Medical Education Faculty Fellowship in Patient-Centered Care in 2014.

Outside of work I am usually found spending time with my husband and two children in our dahlia and vegetable garden, hiking or cooking. I also enjoy playing soccer, swimming and traveling throughout the world.

SHC Patient, Jul 2019

Dr. Sattler is by far the most empathetic and compassionate heath care provider I have ever met. She spends a considerable amount of time ensuring that all my questions get answered and appointments with her never feel rushed. I could not recommend her enough.

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

The dr. expressed concern about my feelings but she doesn't know how to provide comforting words. I told her about something personal but she didn't seem to care - She doesn't know how to talk to her patients - or at least me.

SHC Patient, May 2019

Excellent.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Dr. Sattler was very thorough, spent plenty of time with me to understand and help me with my health issues.

SHC Patient, Oct 2018

Doctor contacted the son of the patient and answered all the questions as a follow up.

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

Dr Sattler is by far one of the best Doctors I have experienced. She is knowledgeable, kind, concerned for her patients and always makes me feel less stressed about visiting the clinic. I moved from California to Idaho a year ago and although I need a local medical provider, I continue to fly back so I can receive her medical expertise and care.

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

Dr. Sattler is one of the most thorough, caring and kind doctors I have ever had.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

She asked me very few questions and pretty much just prompted me to talk. I had to fill her in on my medical record and ask questions but didn't feel like she had looked at my record or seemed that interested in me, frankly.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Dr Sattler is an amazing physician with the perfect blend of knowledge and compassion. I have complete trust and faith in her. I feel extremely fortunate to have her as my physician.

Dr. Sattler is an excellent, caring and thoughtful provider. She knew I was going on a trip, she called me on a Sunday to discuss the results of my lab tests and make sure I start on medication before I leave. That is going above and beyond. Thank you Dr. Sattler.
