Dr. Pauk and her team are some of the best medical professionals I have ever experienced. I'm extremely grateful for all the help and work they provided bring my daughter into the world. [...] is an incredible nurse, she was extremely helpful in the last few weeks of my pregnancy.
Dr. Pauk was wonderful. I have met few providers (both as a pt and [...]) with her willingness to educate and collaborate in care plans, rather than direct. She is clearly invested in both the physical and emotional well being of her pts. She made sure I was able to get my labs drawn before close (which made my appt go far over the allotted time) and took time for my many questions which was really validating. I have had a tough time on the gynecologic front and struggle at these types of appts, especially now with the extra emotional strain from my personal life and [...]. I felt she normalized and respected my discomfort. I couldn't ask for better bedside manner and on top of it she made me laugh. 5 stars, would definitely recommend.

*Dr. Sara J. Pauk is an amazing doctor. Always very knowledgeable, caring and attentive. She has made the experience better and really the only reason I still come to UW Medicine for my medical care.
Dr. Pauk is fantastic. Her care and concern is genuine and she's never once been dismissive of me, which is so important to me [...]. My lifestyle is one that would make enough people raise their eyebrows but she is so tactful - I've never once felt judged by her. She takes the time to answer my questions - she'll educate me, share facts and statistics, and then layer in my concerns so the whole thing is just a nice back and forth conversation. She factors in what I have to say in her responses to me so her approach to care feels comprehensive. It's never stoic, interrogative, assumptive or judgmental. Her tone is always friendly and warm. Dr. Pauk gives me the information/resources needed to make the best decisions for my care while validating any concerns I have. I just really admire and respect how she shows up. I think it could be easy to treat patients like a number or a bunch of checked boxes but Dr. Pauk is a breath of fresh air. She leads with curiosity, is never assumptive or dismissive and she informs with the intent to empower you to make the best decision for you. It's always a treat to see her...even if the reason I'm seeing her is not.
Dr. Pauk is absolutely excellent and by far the best provider I've seen in the UW system. She is warm, respectful, thoughtful and thorough. She never seems rushed, listens carefully, creates a rapport, and gives clear, practical advice. Dr. Pauk's care has always been excellent and look forward to continuing to her continued support with all of my women's health needs!
Dr. [Pauk] was great. I was incredibly anxious about the appt a day she was fantastic, detailed and kind. I'll recommend her to anyone looking
No suggestions for improvement. The entire office is top notch in every way. Those who made the experience better were [...] and [...] (both nurses, and I hope I'm getting their names right), as well as Dr. Pauk. The entire team at that clinic is exceptional.
Both *Sara Pauk and the attending nurse were excellent. The clerks and receptionists were also great. Thank you for all the work you do, especially for women's health.
