As a child, Dr. Sartin always had this vision of becoming a volunteer doctor in a place that really needed better access to medical care. She wanted to be able to help the most vulnerable people, especially those who are suffering from medical disease. Eventually, her vision came true! For two years, she and her husband served as volunteer doctors in a mission hospital about 15 miles from Kathmandu, Nepal.
Dr. Sartin believes that the doctor patient relationship is a two-way street and uses shared decision-making. Both the doctor and the patient need to work together in bringing about healing and better health. Her goal is also to treat patients the way she would a family or a friend. Providing compassionate care is the key to developing meaningful relationships as well as to reaching treatment goals in the most effective manner.
Outside of being a doctor, Dr. Sartin is a stay home mom and she home-schools her 4 kids. Her family enjoys traveling.
Dr. Sartin attended Loma Linda University School of Medicine. She also completed her Family Medicine Residency training at the Loma Linda University Medical Center.
