Patient Comments (5)

My visit with dr. Beard was unfortunate, unpleasant, a waste of time, a waste of insurance coverage, and a waste of my money. He was dismissive, short, and condescending. I would absolutely not refer anyone that I know to him and would actually make the effort to direct them elsewhere.

Dr. Beard has been very professional and helpful with my knee replacement. I have 100% confidence in his ability as a physician.

I met with Dr. Beard for a problematic shoulder. He was friendly, listened to me, looked at my M.R.I and explained what he was seeing. He then gave me several options to try. We made a plan, made sure I felt comfortable with that plan, and explained anything I was unsure of.I felt totally at ease...more

I would indeed recommend Dr. Beard! He did an excellent surgery on my right knee.

My appt was at 9:00am and he didn't come in the room until 9:55am, he didn't care that I felt there were issues from surgery and said, it was nothing I did. Uncaring and unwilling to help. I will never go back and I am transferring out to another Ortho Doctor.
