Sartell Pediatrics welcomes new medical providers
Sartell Pediatrics announes two new providers to the group. Emily Korman, DO and pediatric nurse practitioner Sarah Rudnitski, CPNP-PC will be seeing patients at the clinic located at 111 Second St. S. in Sartell. Both will work alongside Dr. David Smith and psychologist Dr. Kimberly Christensen in providing comprehensive health-care services to children of all ages.
Korman received her medical degree from Des Moines (Iowa) University Osteopathic School. She then went on to complete her pediatric residency at Blank Children’s Hospital in Des Moines. Korman’s clinical interest includes female adolescent and reproductive health-care services. A native to the St. Cloud area and graduate of Rocori High School, Korman said she is excited to be back in central Minnesota and working with its pediatric and adolescent populations.
Rudnitski completed her education at the University of South Alabama where she received a master’s degree in pediatric primary care. Prior to joining Sartell Pediatrics, she worked in both clinical and hospital settings in the St. Cloud area. As a registered nurse at St. Cloud Hospital, Rudnitski served as the charge, mentor and bedside nurse for the pediatric unit, the PICU and NICU. With more than 15 years of total pediatric experience, she has developed special interests in the assessment and care of newborns and babies, as well as family-centered pediatric care.
“Dr. Korman and Sarah Rudnitski complement our team by providing care and services previously unavailable,” said Dr. David Smith, owner and pediatrician. “They both offer reproductive health-care services including birth control as well as STD testing and treatment, which is especially important for our growing adolescent population. With Sarah’s vast experience and interest in newborns and babies, we are well positioned to help children at all ends of the spectrum. Most importantly, however, both providers are extremely kind individuals who deliver care consistent with our mission. I couldn’t be happier to have them as part of our team.”
