Dr. Beal is undoubtedly skilled at what he does. However, nothing makes up for the fact that he is arrogant, doesn't interact, refuses to listen to anything negative about his staff (and there ARE negative things to say), and fails to explain anything. No thanks, never again. One hip replacement was one too many with this guy.

I first saw Dr. Beal after being hospitalised with pain but no idea of the ailment. Meeting him, he was very calm and attentive which offered reassurance. After listening to the pain inexperienced and its location, he performed an exam and recommended a CT scan. Thanks to his assessment, it was discovered I had/have a labral tear. Although this isn’t Dr. Beal’s area of treatment, I appreciate that through his assessment, I was able to receive a diagnosis.

I had surgery 11 days ago. I am using a cane and doing my regular routine, excluding driving.. The pain is minimal. My bandage was taking off yesterday, and my PT commented on how amazing the stitching is. One negative...the swelling is ridiculous (can't wear a shoe) and I don't have an appetite. Regardless, I will be going back to Dr. Beal for my left knee.

My Full knee replacement was caused by a car accident this wasn’t your regular knee replacement . Included with surgery was building structure of the tibia plateau. Dr. Beal’s confidence in his skills and knowledge of what he would need to do to repair my knee I knew he was the one that I wanted to do my knee . 10 days after surgery I walked 2 miles I would say it’s A miracle but I know it was the doctors skills.

I am VERY pleased with the day today on-line support, it just feels like they are checking on me. Care in the hospital was great as well. Dr. Hardt visited with me after surgery so he was aware of my status. I am very pleased with support after this surgery.

Sandra McCann-Beavers in Chicago, Illinois – Jan 24, 2018
Dr. Beal is an excellent doctor. This was my first knee replacement. He took the time to explain the procedure to me and what I can expect afterwards. If I had any questions, as silly as they could have been, he took the time to answer them. He came to visit me several times while in the hospital to see how I was feeling, or if I had any additional questions. I would recommend Dr Beal to any of my family members or friends.

Madonna L Stover in Joliet, IL – Dec 18, 2017
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.

Harry Watson in Chicago, IL – Oct 13, 2017
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.
