Dr. Beals is awesome!! I've been to numerous Dermatologist for the past 20 years and he was the first Dermatologist to really help me!! I highly recommend him for your healthcare.

I was really worried about this spot I had on my shoulder. I walked in to the clinic to smiling faces and when I met with the Doctor I felt like he really cared. It was a great experience and now I know I have nothing to worry about. I am glad I went and I would recommend Dermatology Surgery Center to anyone I know!

NEVER switch to this doctor. Before he ever saw her my mother had to pay $191 up front. Some bull story about medicare and Aetna not paying anyhow. When we went for a second visit to biopsy a couple of sites they wanted another 185. When she refused to pay it they came down to $50 something dollars. When the biopsy results came back there was another excision to be made, but Mother wanted nothing else to be done by this doctor. She could only imagine how much a surgery would cost
We are sorry that you felt the experience you had was negative. That was not our intention. Unfortunately, we have no control over the benefits of the insurance plan that your mother contracted with. We can only abide by the benefit guidelines that she signed up for, in order to file with her insurance plan. The rates collected for her services were provided to us by her insurance plan.

I will never go back. He did not help me at all and I found him to be incredibly condescending and rude. He blamed me for my malidy w one clance. He did not diagnose me and my condition worsened.

I had a sore on my leg that that Dr. Beals decided to watch for two months. At my insistence, a biopsy disclosed a basil cell carcinoma. The cancer had grown to such size that after excision, he referred me to a plastic surgeon for treatment . Disgusted, I moved my records to Coastal Dermatology .Yesterday, Dr. Adams of Coastal removed a basil cell cancer from my face The cancer was under scar tissue of a previous surgery performed by Dr. Beals to remove a basil cell carcinoma.
