Sara McLear, ARNP-C
Vice President of Clinic Operations
Nursing isn’t just a career path for Sara McLear — it’s what she was born to do. Sara holds nearly 20 years of nursing experience and has been with Laser Spine Institute for almost a decade. As our Vice President of Clinic Operations, she manages all clinic processes for our facilities across the United States, attains and maintains our AAAHC accreditations and implements change to keep our clinic operations streamlined.
Sara was introduced to nursing at an early age. While spending summer vacations with her aunt who worked as a home health nurse, she was able to tag along during her aunt’s nursing visits. As a child, Sara was given a first-hand look at patient-centered care.
In 2007, Sara joined our team as an operating room nurse who grasped the ASC process. She rejoined us the next year as a Nurse Practitioner in the clinic, where she was promoted to Clinic Manager and several other enterprise clinic positions as she furthered her nursing certifications.
Sara is a certified advanced registered nurse practitioner who earned her Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Tampa. She also holds a Bachelor of Science in nursing from St. Petersburg College and attended the University of Texas at El Paso for business administration, management and operations.
At home, Sara loves watching the Miami Dolphins and spending time with her husband and loved ones, including her 170-pound English mastiff, Marino.
