Dr. Beal was really good with my sons throat surgery. I was so worried. I don't normally do reviews but wanted to because of the difference in care from my ent before we moved to Shreveport. I mean doctors don't normally spend the time with you Dr. Beal did and he spoke to my son and made him feel comfortable in a scary situation for a 5 year old. Kudos to him and his nurse! She was friendly and available to speak to me the day after surgery all three times I called. Thank you for making the experience the best it could be.

Was referred to Dr. Beal and very happy with the referral. Dr. Beal has a very calming nature and a wonderful upbeat attitude. He answers all questions as thoroughly as possible but doesn't just tell you what he thinks you want to hear. He is patient and looks me straight in the eye when he talks to me and listens when I talk to him. I never feel hurried or rushed and am very confident and pleased with the treatment I am receiving from him. Would recommend him to anyone.

Two years ago, Dr. Beal diagnosed Lymph Node cancer in my neck. He sent me straightaway to W.K. Cancer Center. Long story shortened, cancer was treated and is still in remission. Saw him today for polyps in my sinus cavity. Will have them taken care of. One of the most concerned and through physicians that I know.

After seeing several doctors, Dr. Beal recognized a condition outside of his specialty and referred me to the appropriate provider. I suffered almost a year with this, being bounced back from my primary care to my dermatologist. So glad I went to see him.

Dr. Beal is more concerned with performing surgery for personal gain rather than actually treating the patient. I have a complicated condition with my sinuses and instead of performing a thorough analysis of my underlying conditions, he opted for surgery to remove polyps. The surgery was not successful in resolving my condition. In addition, Dr. Beal never followed up with me after surgery to ensure that my condition was better. Stay away.

I was having trouble breathing through my nose for years before I decided to finally seek help. Dr. Beal and his staff were extremely helpful with my needs. After a CT scan of my sinuses revealed a cyst and deviated septum, Dr. Beal recommended a sinoplasty, ESS and a turbinate reduction. I went through with the surgery and I couldn't be happier with his suggestions!!! I haven't been able to breathe like this in years. He will take care of you like family!
