Overall Patient Satisfaction
Likelihood of recommending Dr. Beard to family and friends is 3.9 out of 5
While I appreciate and take patient feedback very seriously, your comments regarding your recent visit are concerning to say the least. Having provided non-surgical and surgical care to central and western Nebraska since 1995, I would never dream of disrespecting a patient in any way regardless of the situation.
Your comments about my attitude toward your referring physician are also alarming. I greatly value my relationships with referring physicians and I personally work very hard to maintain a mutual level of respect with all physicians.
I approach every patient and his or her needs individually and I understand it may be upsetting when my recommendations do not meet patient expectations, however it remains the surgeons judgment to determine who is a good candidate for surgery and who is not.
Again, I appreciate your feedback and I would love an opportunity to clear up any miscommunications or misunderstandings that may have occurred. Please call Front Range Center for Brain & Spine Surgery at 970-493-1292 and ask to speak with Nancy.
Thank you and we look forward to speaking with you further.
