Patient Comments (14)
I went to Northwest Memorial Hospital believing that I needed back surgery after the diagnosis of a local orthopedic doctor. However, once it was determined that my prinary issue was hips, I was referred to Dr. Beal. From the first, I felt that I was in capable hands. The day of surgery ran smoothly and my follow-up care has been excellent. As I get ready for a second surgery, I have nothing but confidence in Dr.Beal and his team. I would definitely recommend them; they have been wonderful.

Dr Beal is very easy to talk and explains things so you understand him. He explained the surgery, recovery, how the pain was going to be and the solutions to making the pain easier to handle. His bedside manor was excellent and help eased my anxieties!!! I would highly recommend Dr Beal!!!!

I was experiencing pain a year and a half after bilateral partial knee replacement and I was not confident in my doctor's solution. On a friend's suggestion I sought a second opinion with Dr. Beal and it seemed total knee revision in both knees was the course to take. Dr. Beal seemed confident he could do the revision, and had experience with revision surgery. I have had both surgeries and am very pleased with the lessening of pain, fuller range of motion, and over all stability of both knees.

Well coordinated staff care; excellent pre- and post-op preparation, reminders, checklists. Dr. Beal has very good bedside manner.

From our first meeting I felt I finally met a doctor who would work with me and help me with my arthritic knees. We discussed my condition and offered alternative treatment with the understanding that knee replacement was inevitable. I was never pressured about surgery and was allowed time to consider my options. After 2 years of injections I decided to have surgery and am glad I did. After 2 weeks I am walking without pain. Dr. Beal and his staff has made this an easy process. Thank you.

I really like Dr Beal. He just needs to spend more pre op post op time with the patient. His expertise is excellent. Was very satisfied with him.

Dr Beal is smart, compassionate and conservative with his treatment. After injection therapy failed to bring me long term comfort, Dr Beal recommended a total knee replacement. After a thorough explanation, the decision was left up to me. I had a successful knee replacement. Dr Beal and his staff have been so kind and helpful in many ways . They have provided outstanding daily follow-ups which have brought me great comfort. Thank you, Dr. Matthew Beal! I will be forever grateful.
in Dundee, IL |
I have been very happy with the results of my knee replacement surgery after almost 14 days. The pain has been substantially less than what I expected and my progress, according to the physical therapist, has been excellent. The fact that doctor Beal does so many of these and that Northwestern is such a great hospital leads me to recommend Dr.Beal to anyone looking for joint replacement .
in Winnetka, IL |
He listens, cares and knows
