Dr. Bearden is an exceptional physician. He has always treated me with respect. Just recently, my wife, Deborah was concerned about a matter and Dr. Bearden was kind in his treatment toward her concern. Deborah was impressed with Dr. Bearden’s thoughtfulness. Dr. Bearden is a great person and friend.

I've been dealing with psychiatrists for ten years now, and I've had a lot of them. I started with Dr. Bearden about two years ago, and I've never had a better psychiatrist. He's kind and listens to all that you have to say, and he takes you seriously (whereas other psychiatrists seem to be at times skeptical of their patients, since we all know that some people who lack integrity lie about mental health conditions in order to get pills). It's so difficult to live your life with a genuinely debilitating mental health condition and feel like not even your healthcare professional is on your side--but I've known Dr. Bearden is on my side since my very first appointment (and I've probably had around 30 appointments by now). The knowledge that he pulls forth, from just a simple list of my symptoms and a brief account of my health over the past few weeks, compels me to place all my trust in him. I also have never really had problems with the office staff like some others apparently have.

Kind hearted, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to. Dr. BEARDEN is outstanding. His office staff, however, is terrible (specifically the older woman). She's rude, condescending, difficult to speak with, and becomes aggressive when simple requests are made. I don't like dealing with them.

He is a nice person who is very patient. He was recommended by a friend who has also had very good experiences with him. He will really work to get your medication just right. He has been a doctor for a while and really knows his stuff.
