He was very unprofessional, rude and no bedside manner. I would never recommend him to anyone.

Doctor Beecher done replacement surgery on my left hip. He was informative on what would take place. I had no pain at all after surgery and have gotten a long great after surgery. He will be doing replacement surgery on my right in October. I know I will be in the best hands for my surgery.

I visit Dr. Beecher for the first time ever, he and his staff was very polite.. I listen and gave me my options and the best options for me, he also explain everything clearly and made sure I understood and before he move on to the next thing he asked did I have any questions about what he just explain.. I can say my visit was a great one.

I just had a total knee replacement on Monday. Dr Beecher and the staff at Mercy were awesome.
Newton |
RUDE, unsympathetic, dismissive, worst bedside manor from all my years alive and I have had over 20 surgeries. Seemef to be more concerned with his own opinions rather than helping my knee situation.DO NOT USE THE SURGEON. I WOULDN'T LET HIM CUT ON MY DOG
