I had shoulder surgery with Dr. Bean in October of 2015 and received excellent medical care with him. I recovered and have complete range of motion in my shoulder. Then in 2016 I tore my ACL, I knew I wanted Dr. Bean to perform the reconstruction surgery of my knee. I also have full function of my knee and would highly recommend anyone to him. He has a very approachable and cheerful personality.

I had knee replacement surgery four months ago and I can honestly say that it doesn't even 'feel' like I had the procedure. My knee is absolutely great! Excellent functionality, no swelling and no pain. I highly recommend Dr. Bean. He is kind, a great listener and has an excellent bed side manner. I will definitely be having my 2nd knee done with him.

I had ankle surgery with him and he is so kind! Great at what he does! I would not recommend going to anyone else.

Received excellent medical attention. I am now scheduled to see him for a different medical procedure. I am positive I will continue to receive excellent customer service.

I have been a patient of Dr. Bean's for over 20 years. Dr. Bean's care and craft impacted my life as early as 14 years old. Every surgery he has performed has lasted and returned to normal or better functionality. I greatly appreciate all that he has done for me and highly recommend him to everyone. He's one physician in this city that you can always count on. Thank you Dr. Bean!

I had both my knees replaced and because of Dr Bean I have been delivering mail in and out of a mail trucks 8 years. I would highly recommend him.

I give one star only because there is no option for negative stars. 83 year old family member went into the ER (what a joke) at their hospital on the west side with a horribly broken arm on a Thursday. He was sent home with a wrap and a sling. Seven days later and still no treatment. This is the worst patient care that I have ever seen. Patient is being treated like a number.
To give some reply, this patient had cardiovascular issues that needed to be addressed by his cardiologist prior to performing an Orthopedic procedure. I have limited control of the hospital procedures being implemented when I am not present. The patient underwent an Orthopedic procedure to stabilize a fracture within 9 days having to wait for the approval of the Cardiologist. The patient recovered from the injury well and then apologized for a family members comment on this site.
