Sabrina Felson, MD, is board-certified in internal medicine and has practiced at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center Manhattan Campus since 2006. She maintains a busy primary practice, caring for close to 1,000 of our nation’s veterans. She supervises New York University internal medicine residents during their ambulatory clinics and instructs medical students on the bedside physical exam. In her role as assistant chief of outpatient medicine, Felson shares responsibility for the smooth operations of the primary care clinic, and to this end she is involved in faculty evaluations, system redesign, and clinic flow. She has developed IT tools used throughout her service network to promote communication with the patient, encouraging appropriate follow-up between visits. Like any true generalist, she is interested in many facets of health care, including veteran homelessness, maximizing the utility of clinical reminders, addiction medicine, diabetes, patient navigation, resident clinics, and, most importantly, taking very good care of patients.
Felson attended Case Western Reserve University Medical School before moving to New York City for residency at New York University, which she was drawn to because of its clinical hub, the historic Bellevue Hospital. She had the honor of serving as senior chief resident before joining the NYU faculty. She is a member of the American College of Physicians.
