Sascha - A little all over making sure all are Seen. Heard. & Understood

I’m Sascha, i’m the CEO of Capture Therapeutics by PhysioFirst, and I started this practice to offer individuals a better healthcare experience. I felt like we were often numbers in a system without faces. I envisioned a team of professionals that  worked together towards common goals to achieve not our goal, but our patients’ specific goals. 

I am originally from Grand Falls, NB. I studied at the University of New Brunswick where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. Then I pursued my Master’s degree at McMaster’s University in Ontario where I saw different ways the health care system could work. I had some exposure to women’s health and pediatrics while in Ontario. I returned to start practicing privately in Grand Falls, NB, and pursued my Doctorate degree through the states. 

After my doctorate graduation I decided that I needed to start something from scratch that served a greater purpose. I wanted patients to have a safe and private space where they could discuss their health issues without fear. I wanted them to feel like they mattered. If you walk into one of our clinics I hope that you feel a sense of belonging and meet professionals that hold your well being at heart. I also wanted a state of the art facility where we could give people that extra edge on their road to recovery.

My love lies in consultations and pelvic health/women’s health. I spend most of my days ensuring that all clinics operate smoothly and that helps develop plans to help other rural communities like ours. I work with patients with incontinence, sexual pain, breast-feeding concerns, pregnancy related questions/pains, paediatrics, and pessary fittings. 

I hope that when you enter our clinic, you feel safe and at home. We want you to open up, be honest, and let us help you. We work as a team and you are at the core of that team. 

Thank you for choosing us!


Sascha xo
