About

Dr. Sean Zager

Dr. Zager is a graduate of the University of Michigan Medical School, where he also completed a fellowship in Integrative Medicine.  His residency training is in family medicine through UCSF/Sutter Health in Santa Rosa, California.  Dr. Zager is a board certified family physician with a passion for holistic approaches to patient care.  

When it comes to caring for people with hypothyroidism, Dr. Zager has found it helpful to draw from both conventional and evidence-based alternative methods of diagnosis and treatment.  Hypothyroid care is certainly not a ""one-size-fits-all"" operation.  Effective approaches come from an understanding of each person's narrative, with reference to lifestyle and individual goals.  Dr. Zager also often thinks of thyroid management in relation to adrenal, immune and gastrointestinal health.

In his free time, Dr. Zager likes to run with his son in the stroller, hang out with friends and listen to music, and strum on his ukulele.


What makes you passionate about treating patients with hypothyroidism: 

It is rewarding to work with patients who finally feel "seen" in their hypothyroid care.   To witness improvement in the health of my patients, by virtue of a more integrative and personalized treatment approach, is why I do this work.  I enjoy helping hypothyroid patients feel empowered, with a clear understanding of the various diagnostic and therapeutic options available for better thyroid health.  As thyroid function is brought into balance, it is a wonderful thing to watch symptoms fade and patients reclaim a capacity to move forward in their lives.


My approach to treating patients with hypothyroidism is:

My approach to treating patients with hypothyroidism is highly individualized and informed by trends in both symptoms and lab results.  My patients and I discuss prescription treatment options alongside natural/botanical therapies and lifestyle considerations for thyroid support.  We frequently talk through the pillars of health -- nutrition, exercise, stress management and sleep hygiene.  Finally, as our thyroid glands live in a (fantastically complex) body and not a vacuum, my patients and I often look at potential contributions to thyroid dysfunction from other glands (e.g., adrenal) and systems (e.g., GI) in the body.

Rating: 5- 6 reviews

Background

While I have been a practicing physician since 2003, I made the change to telemedicine full time in 2020. I believe it is the future of patient care.‍After many experiences with patients who did not receive quality thyroid care due to single lab numbers, I attended a conference in 2012 that altered the way I view thyroid care. I look at the whole patient by assessing symptoms as well as reviewing labs to offer the best treatment and care for the individual. I find that supporting thyroid concerns can make a noticeable and positive change in people’s lives.‍
