Dr. Tsai earned her MD from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas in 1995. She is a board-certified internist who specializes in lipid disorders, hypertension, and weight management. She earned her Masters in Public Health from the University of California, Berkeley and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in cardiovascular disease prevention at the Stanford Prevention Research Center.
She currently practices in the Stanford Women’s Heart Health Clinic, Preventive Cardiology Clinic, and Internal Medicine Clinic. Her focus is on preventing, reversing, and treating cardiometabolic conditions such as elevated blood pressure, elevated blood glucose, and abnormal cholesterol in order to ultimately prevent heart attacks and strokes. Her clinic team includes dietitians, genetic counselors, psychologists, and cardiologists who work together to help improve their patient’s lifestyles, mental health, and physical health.
She lives with her husband, 3 sons, and their Golden Retriever, Izzy. Outside work, Sandra enjoys reading, running, and hiking.
At the Salon:
At the salon, participants will learn about the cardiometabolic spectrum.
We will review how the interplay between blood pressure, cholesterol,
glucose, and weight relate to the development of cardiovascular diseases
like heart attacks and stroke. Determining a person's risk using screening
tools and how to reduce this risk using lifestyle modification, and when necessary, pharmaceuticals will also be discussed.
