Dr. Beals is knowledgeable and caring. She listens to her patients and spends time with them. Most of the time you will have to wait past your scheduled time to see Dr. Beals. I don't mind the wait time because I know Dr. Beals is spending the same quality time with another patient that she spends with me. She is worth the wait.
