Sara O’Heron, M.D.

OB/GYN and Pediatrics

Sara O’Heron, MD is honored to provide the community of Peachtree City, Georgia with the highest standard of OB/GYN, pediatric, and women’s health care. As founder of Lifeboat Medical Associates, Dr. O’Heron continues a commitment to serving women and children that stems from her diverse training and professional background.

Born and raised in Wales, United Kingdom, Dr. O’Heron emigrated to Canada to pursue higher education. After completing her undergraduate degree in dance and visual arts, she earned a degree in education. She went on to work with autistic children in the field of special education and helped create a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation program for parents of autistic preschoolers.

Feeling drawn toward medicine, Dr. O’Heron proceeded to earn her medical degree at McMaster University in Ontario, where she specialized in maternal and child health. She went on to complete a fellowship in high-risk surgical obstetrics.

Dr. O’Heron practiced OB/GYN and pediatrics while teaching at McMaster University until the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston recruited her to teach primary care obstetrics. While in Texas, she worked in an underserved area and specialized in evaluating cases of child abuse. Then, she moved to Peachtree City, Georgia to teach full time at Emory University.

In 1999, Dr. O’Heron opened Lifeboat Medical Associates, where she proudly continues to serve her community as a skilled Gynecologist, Pediatrician, and Family Practitioner. She still maintains an affiliation with Emory University, Mercer University, and Medical College of Georgia, where she teaches aspiring medical professionals. Dr. O’Heron also continues to work with social services, child placement agencies, and children with autism, ADD, and developmental issues.

Dr. O’Heron is an expert in the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine and BRCA genetic testing for breast and ovarian cancer.
