Dr. Bean is the consumate professional. Tells it like it is, and always puts you at ease. Always answers questions or concerns you have. Dr. Bean has operated on me several times and I have always been satisfied with the outcome,things beyond his control happen and that is part of life and have to be accepted.
in Owenton, KY |
Dr. Bean has excellent patient repore'. He does a thorough review of the situation from all angles prior to a decision. In which he involves the patient to be the final decision. You can be comfortable knowing he has the experience, the knowledge and expertise in his area of Neurosurgery. The procedural scheduling staff (a male) definitely needs to become more efficient in returning calls. Having to call back no less than 3 times is too much. Immediate care nurses need to do the same.
