Dr. Sarah Washatka, D.O., obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education at Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee, where she was a full scholarship soccer collegiate athlete. She taught Special Education for three years at Northwest High School in Georgia while obtaining her pre-requisites to go to medical school at night and on her summer breaks. She always wanted to be a physician, and she knew from the start that she wanted to combine conventional medicine with a more holistic approach, so she applied and got into osteopathic medical school. She then moved to Michigan for 4 years, where she obtained her medical degree at Michigan State College of Osteopathic Medicine. Dr. Washatka completed her Residency in Family Medicine at Oklahoma State University Medical Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She is a Board-Certified Family Medicine Physician but specializes in functional and holistic medicine. She combines her training in conventional medicine with her experience and knowledge of more holistic and alternative treatments to build an individualized plan of healing for each patient.
I have been taking my 3-month-old daughter to Dr. Sarah Washatka since her birth and have loved her! She is friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable. She takes the time to listen and answer my questions; I don't feel rushed at all. I have been very pleased with both her and her treatment. For both illnesses my daughter has had, she has given us great diagnosis and treatment, and we have been back to feeling better right away! I highly recommend!
Dr. Sarah Washatka is thorough, patient, and skilled. She is addressing all my issues and looking to get to the root cause of my symptoms. She listens, takes into account my medical history, and is helping me figure out why my health is not up to par.
Dr. Sarah Washatka was amazing! She was very personable, knowledgeable, and very understanding of the decisions we made on how to parent our son. She supported us in our decisions and offered support. For any parents out there who are “crunchy” and prefer to do things holistically and different than everyone else, Dr. Washatka will be perfect for you! We are 100% satisfied in the care she gave our son and are excited to see her ourselves also!
