Dr. Kara Beair Butler

Dr. Beair has her own private practice in Tulsa . She has many accomplishments that make her well-rounded in service delivery. She has a direct understanding of the disease process and what is needed to manage them appropriately. Unfortunately, not everyone has access to what is needed and now we can help bridge the gap through OSHO.  - Sadie

President

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 was a volunteer at Camp Lo-Be-Gon for 25 years, a day camp for children with Diabetes. 

Dr. Beair is a proud alumna of Holland Hall School, and is now the Past 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.


"I met Dr. Beair through OSHO. They were looking for resources for their patient's. It quickly became a mutual give and take relationship where we were always helping one another. I'm thrilled she wanted to join me  on my first Board of Directors. When you meet her, you wouldn't know all of her accomplishments right off the bat. She is relatable, funny, and kind. I can't imagine OSHO failing with her as our President. I'm blessed our paths crossed!" - Founder
