Kingman Regional Medical Center announced that Dr. Sarah Knievel has recently joined Dr. Paul Yamaguchi at Mohave Pain Management in Kingman.

Knievel attended medical school at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver. She also did an internship in internal medicine at the St. Joseph Exempla Hospital in Denver and a residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.
