Physician Assistant


Meet Vivian Yael Sarne, PA-C

Vivian Yael Sarne completed her Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies and a Bachelor of Science in Health Services at Touro College, School of Health Sciences, in Manhattan, New York; she also received a Bachelor of Science in Biology at Touro College, Flatbush Campus, Lander College of Arts and Sciences.

Vivian is board certified by the state of Texas as a Physician Assistant and is fluent in English, Spanish, and Hebrew. Previously she worked as an emergency room physician assistant at Medical Center of Arlington, Texas. “Treating patients in the ER was frustrating at times,” Vivian said. “There was only so much I could do for someone who came in with back pain. At Spine Team Texas, I have more tools to help patients alleviate pain and feel better.”

A Dallas native and mother of four, Vivian was happy to return to her home state after completing her education in New York. “The weather is better here,” she said. Plus, she enjoys swimming and barbequing — two pastimes that are better in Texas!
