Internal Medicine


Dr. Sweeney was born and raised in Santa Barbara. She attended UC San Diego, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science with minors in Chemistry and History. She graduated from New York Medical College in 2002. She completed her Internal Medicine Residency at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in 2005 and received Board Certification in Internal Medicine in August 2005.

Dr. Sweeney’s Internal Medicine clinic is located in beautiful Montecito, where she currently lives with her husband and three children.

Internal Medicine is first and foremost the practice of preventive medicine.  Dr. Sweeney strives to help patients maintain their good health and even achieve better health, just as much as she strives to help improve the health of those patients with disease.

Dr. Sweeney believes the doctor-patient relationship is built on trust. She believes trust is earned by doctors who take the time to listen to their patients as well as explain to their patients what options they have in every health-related situation.

Time is critical and valuable.  Dr. Sweeney does not believe in rushing through visits at the expense of her patients’ understanding of their own health issues.  She wants to empower her patients with the knowledge of their own health situation so that they can participate actively and daily in maintaining and improving it.
