“You see patients suddenly start to push back on an eating disorder, decide they don’t want it anymore.”


Sara Niego, M.D.

Service Chief, Eating Disorders Program

“You see patients suddenly start to push back on an eating disorder, decide they don’t want it anymore.”


Orienting patients towards lives of recovery and away from their eating disorders is the lifework of Eating Disorders Program Service Chief, Sara Niego, M.D.

“I like every patient,” she says of her mission. “There is no patient I don’t like treating, no kind of patient or disorder. I see people as people not patients, and I think that’s my defining feature.”

Dr. Niego serves as the psychiatrist for the Eating Disorders Program, and has “an extensive background in both research and the clinical treatment of eating disorders.” She evaluates and monitors each patient medically, manages medications, and works with all patients both individually and in group.

“You can’t really help patients unless they feel they are heard and understood by you,” she believes. “What I bring to my treatment of patients is all this knowledge I’ve garnered through the years plus someone I think they can relate to.”
