Dr. Alexander Sabre shared as an anecdote that since he was a child, wearing diapers and running around his father's clinic, he found his great passion for Medicine. Currently, his exceptional talent and passion position him as one of the best Obstetricians and Gynecologists in Phoenix, Arizona.

He has been practically always connected in some way or another to the medical profession, as his father is a surgeon and his mother is a nurse.
Currently, he works as an obstetrician and gynecologist at MomDoc LLC, Honor Health Care System, and also holds leadership positions within this health system. Additionally, he is responsible for the Obstetrics and Gynecology department at Abrazo Arrowhead Hospital.

His main responsibilities include attending to approximately 25 patients per day, which includes new obstetric visits, established visits, annual visits, women's evaluations, and comprehensive gynecology, among other activities.

As an obstetrician, he mentioned that the greatest challenge is managing labor without complications, including assisted vaginal deliveries, natural births, and cesarean sections.

Dr. Sabre is deeply committed to providing care to his patients. For him, everyone in the medical profession should treat patients as if they were attending to the spouse of a friend, the mother of someone close, or the sister of someone else. He believes in taking into account the individual aspects of each person, rather than viewing them as mere numbers on a patient list, and providing comprehensive care for women in all aspects of their lives.

Throughout his career, he participated as a resident at the Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center in New York City, Singleton Moms, and he is a member of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG), American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG), and Society of OB/GYN Hospitalists (SOGH).
His surgical practice has earned him recognition and awards, including the CIR Patient Care Trust Fund Resident Research Grant in 2020, and the SOGH Inaugural Future Leaders Award, among others.

In the interview, he emphasized that the biggest challenge he has faced throughout his career is maintaining the attitude of
"No matter how many obstacles I have to face, I will be able to overcome them, even if many people tell me I can't."
Unforgettable Experience

This attitude motivated him to live one of the best experiences in his academic and personal life in the city of Guadalajara, Mexico, and fulfill his greatest dream of becoming a doctor.

"When I arrived in Guadalajara, I didn't know any Spanish. I started conversing with people while holding two suitcases and two sheets of paper, and I simply fell in love with the culture, the people, the city," he expressed.

He studied at the Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara (UAG) in the International Medicine Program and graduated in 2016. His connection to this university came from his father, who is also a
UAG graduate from the Class of 1983.

"Everything related to my experience here was wonderful. It opened my mind and allowed me to embrace and enjoy everything that came my way. It gave me the ability to practice medicine and pursue my dreams and my greatest passion."

He recalls some of his anecdotes at UAG, such as being the president of the Medical School and participating in different volunteer activities with Cruz Verde and similar associations.

He also remembers the great instructors he had during his studies, particularly Dr. Carmelita, who had a great passion for teaching and motivated them to learn and feel part of this great country. He has incredible memories from his time at UAG.

"It's wonderful to be back at UAG and see all the changes it has undergone. It brings back all my memories from when I was here."

He then advised students to build a network with their classmates, colleagues, and people who can help and contribute to their careers and professional growth. In his experience, this aspect has greatly supported his professional development.

"Passion is also important. Explore and discover what truly excites you in the field of medicine and go after it," he concluded.
