Dr. Sartin Joins Team at Methodist Infectious Disease Clinic

Published: Oct. 5, 2018

OMAHA – Dr. Jeffrey Sartin has always been fascinated by science and medicine. The drive to figure things out drew him to treating infectious diseases.

“But what I really like is making patients better,” said Dr. Sartin, who has joined the Infectious Disease/Travel Medicine staff at Methodist Physicians Clinic Regency.

Sometimes it’s the little things that are most rewarding.

He tells the story of treating a patient in his late 80s who had a vascular infection.

“We weren’t sure that he was going to do well,” Dr. Sartin said. “And lo and behold when I saw him about two months down the road, I asked him how he was doing. And he said, ‘Well, I’m back to driving my tractor.’ To me, that was a very good outcome.”

Dr. Sartin earned his bachelor’s degree and completed medical school at Emory University in Atlanta. He completed an internal medicine residency and an infectious disease fellowship at the Mayo Clinic School of Graduate Medical Education in Rochester, Minnesota.

He comes to Methodist with a wealth of experience – he has been a board-certified internist since 1989, and he became a board-certified infectious disease physician in 1992. He most recently was an internist and infectious disease physician at Infectious Disease and Epidemiology Associates in Omaha.

While he is involved in all aspects of treating infectious diseases, he is especially experienced with orthopedic infections, HIV and travel medicine.

In addition to the Infectious Diseases Clinic at Regency, Dr. Sartin will see patients at Methodist Women’s Hospital and Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital.

Wherever the location, Dr. Sartin looks forward to establishing relationships built on trust.

“I think patients are faced with a lot of uncertainty when they’re sick,” he said. “You have to have a feeling that whatever you’re going through, this health care provider is going to help you get better and get through it.”
