Shad Beaty, MD, FAAP, provides care with Springfield Clinic’s Pediatrics Department. Previously practicing in Morton, Dr. Beaty is a board-certified pediatrician who sees patients at Springfield Clinic Bloomington-Normal (2005 Jacobssen Drive).
“Science has always been a passion of mine in school, and I enjoy getting to work with people. Those two passions came together to a career in medicine,” he says.
A native of central Illinois, Dr. Beaty completed his undergraduate degree at Illinois Wesleyan University. He earned his medical degree from the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria and completed his pediatric residency at OSF Healthcare St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria.
Dr. Beaty’s scope of practice will include patients from birth through college, and his team focuses on providing a laid-back family and child-centered care experience.
“When it comes to my job, I most enjoy my interactions with my patients and their families,” says Dr. Beaty.
