They were very accommodating changing appointment time due to conflict with another doctor appointment. The entire experience was above my expectations, zero wait time, prompt diagnosis with immediate corrective treatment, plus thorough explanation by the staff and a personal visit by Dr. Beals.

Coming to this office was a great experience! Dr Beals and his staff couldn’t be more friendly. I felt comfortable and at ease discussing my medical issues. I felt good leaving knowing that I would be well taken care of. I would definitely return to this clinic and recommend my friends.

My 13 year old daughter has a suspicious mole on her back. Dr. Beals and staff agreed. Took a biopsy and the mole came back pre-cancerous. After discussing our family history of melanoma we agreed to monitor more moles. Love all the providers and staff. Very friendly and caring.

Suspicious lesion on the side of my nose, led Dr. Jones to schedule a biopsy for me with Dr. Beals who did an excellent job in "punching" my nose. Couple of stitches and a couple of weeks later, I was as good as new. Wonderful care.

I am the one that encouraged my best friend to see this Dr when she could not get into her own. For a year she was misdiagnosed with shingles, bites, and ECT. This Dr came in and accused my friend who was covered from head to ankles in sores that she was a PICKER. Told her to admit it. What a jerk! Anyways she almost died in December because of UNDIAGNOSED form of staph. She also had a history of basal cell carcinoma. He dismissed her like trash. Her staph attacked her heart and lungs. A JERK!

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

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.
