Dr. Kara Beair Butler, known to her patients as Dr. Beair, is an Oklahoma native, who prides herself on commitment to her community. At the age of 3, she proclaimed her desire to be a physician and serve others, and she has never looked back. Following the diagnosis of her brother Brian with Type I Diabetes over 25 years ago, she became an advocate for families living with this disease, as well as families facing chronic illness. Her family founded the Green Country Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, which funds research for a cure. Dr. Beair has also served as a counselor and member of the Medical Staff of Camp Lo-Be-Gon, a day camp for children with Diabetes, for the last 23 years.
Dr. Beair is a proud alumna of Holland Hall School, and she currently serves as the Vice President of the Alumni Board. She pursued her undergraduate degree from Oklahoma City University, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts and Sciences, and then went on to obtain her degree as a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine from the Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine. While at OSU-COM, Dr. Beair was a member of the inaugural class of the Rural Health Option, which provided additional training in rural medicine and health disparities in Oklahoma to a select group of students. This training was invaluable. She is a Cowgirl through and through, and you will see her proudly wear her orange on game days. Despite bleeding orange, she went on to complete a dual residency in Adult Internal Medicine and Pediatrics from the OU School of Community Medicine. Upon completion of her residency, Dr. Beair was honored with the Pediatric "Undeniable Award," a distinction given to the resident who takes pleasure in hard work, seeks knowledge, and lives a life of resilience.
Following her residency, Dr. Beair stayed on at OU as the Medical Director of the Internal Medicine/Pediatrics Clinic, and also served as both the Director of the Heart Improvement Project (a program providing medical services to uninsured patients with cardiovascular risk factors) and the Medical Director of the Street Outreach Clinic at Youth Services of Tulsa. She then took an opportunity at TU to serve as the Medical Director of the Hurricane Health Clinic and the Alexander Health Center. Through her experiences at these organizations, Dr. Beair had the opportunity to serve patients of all ages and backgrounds. She was also able to work with students from high school to graduate school. She partnered with Holland Hall and Tulsa Public Schools in their launch of a new community-based learning experience called Tulsa Term. She helped develop the Community Medicine Curriculum for this project and was thrilled to teach the initial cohort in Spring of 2019. It was all these endeavors that led her to be named the 2017 recipient of the Holland Hall Young Alumni Award. Through her experiences at OSU, OU, and TU, she came to the realization that she wanted to create a community-based clinic, which would allow her to better serve her patients, demonstrate to her students the practices of which she preaches, and give back to the community through service projects and focused programming. The creation of Beair Medical Group is truly a lifelong dream coming to fruition.
In addition to being a physician, Dr. Beair is a wife and mother, and these are the roles in which she takes the most pride. She has been married to her husband Grant, a Volume Management Representative for Williams Companies, for 8 years. They have 5 year old girl/boy twins, Eden and McIntyre, and an infant daughter, Eisla. Their family attends The Church at Jenks. Dr. Beair loves cooking, crafting, traveling, exercising, and is known for throwing one heck of a party. She loves sports of all kinds and proudly serves as a coach for the Jenks Girls Softball Federation. She is looking forward to serving the community in which she lives and bringing compassionate, comprehensive care to individuals and families of all ages.
Mrs. Patti Wheaton, APRN, MSN, was born in Oklahoma City and found herself traveling the Southern United States for most of her early childhood. At the age of 6, her family laid down roots in Independence, Missouri, where she would later meet and marry her husband. They moved to Shawnee, Oklahoma, and then spent a brief stint in New Mexico, before finally settling down in Jenks, where they have spent the better part of their lives together.
Mrs. Wheaton was inspired to pursue a career in nursing by her aunt. She began her nursing career as an LPN in 1984, and by 1988, she completed her BSN from the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. Soon after, she set her sights on becoming a Nurse Practitioner. She obtained her degree as a Women's Healthcare Nurse Practitioner from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in 1991. In 2002, she earned her Master's in Nursing as a Clinical Nurse Specialist from the University of Oklahoma. She returned to school for the last time in 2005 to complete training as a Family Nurse Practitioner at George Washington University. During her career, she has worked in a variety of settings, including the Hospital, Health Department, several private practices, and a local university.
Mrs. Wheaton's roots in Jenks run deep. She moved here with her family in 1995, and both of her children attended school here. She had a solo practice in Jenks for 12 years, which many will recall as the little pink clinic on Main. She is excited to return to the Jenks healthcare community to provide care to our area’s families once again. Mrs. Wheaton developed a special interest in sleep medicine after her daughter developed Narcolepsy and is passionate about assisting Prediabetic patients in preventing the onset of Diabetes.
When she isn't working, Mrs. Wheaton enjoys bargain hunting, crafts and the critters on their family ranchette, affectionately known as "Misfit Acres." She enjoys camping and kayaking with her husband of 37 years, as well. They can be found most Sundays leading the praise and worship at their home church in Redfork, where she is also actively involved in the Sunday school program.
When she can sneak away, you’ll find Mrs. Wheaton in Colorado visiting her one and only adorable grandson, Benjamin, whose dad is a Jenks alum and whose mother taught strings in the Jenks orchestra program.
Mrs. Wheaton is looking forward to again building and growing relationships as she provides care for the people of Jenks and the surrounding cities.
