After earning a BA in Psychology from UCLA, Dr. Sarah Beaty attended medical school at Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine. She ultimately graduated from the Adventist Health Glendale Family Medicine Residency program. During her residency, she received an outstanding education in women’s healthcare, which sparked her passion and gave her direction in the medical field.
Dr. Beaty was asked to join as faculty for the residency program, and began working at nearby affiliated sites. She currently serves as the attending physician to rotating second year family medicine residents. Together, they provide prenatal care and women’s health services at various clinics, as well as adolescent healthcare at a local high school. Dr. Beaty enjoys teaching her residents, and caring for diverse populations alongside them.
She believes that every patient should be treated equally, regardless of economic status, race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, or cultural background; that medical care should be a basic right and not withheld from anyone. Dr. Beaty understands that every patient has a story to tell and can teach a lesson if you listen. For her, communication is key– both to understand a patient’s full story, and to ensure that they understand and are able to carry out their care plan.
Dr. Beaty often tells her residents, “If you ask the right questions and really listen to the patient, they will lead you to the right diagnosis. It is when we are rushed and think we know all the right questions to ask that we miss things. It is a privilege for a patient to entrust you with the health of their body, and we must not forget this or take it for granted. Every appointment, blood draw, procedure, and conversation is an important part of their medical story. What may be very trivial to us as providers, can be very scary to a patient. Taking the time to really explore these feelings is monumental.”
In her free time, Dr. Sarah Beaty enjoys being home with her family, which includes her husband (an archeologist) and their three children, aged 7, 5 and 21 months. They love cooking, movie nights on the projector, playing at the beach, hiking, and camping. Prior to the pandemic, they would frequently travel to Ensenada, California to visit relatives.
