Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Beer "Some surgeons adopt aggressive surgery rapidly for spinal problems while others never seem to identify the root of the problem and recommend sometimes inappropriate, often unreliable treatments like pain medications or spinal stimulators. My philosophy focuses on what's right for you with the least invasive most conservative alternatives first while at the same time providing options for definitive surgical care if necessary. We take an accountable team approach. At WSNA, WE HAVE YOUR BACK!"

I would recommend Dr Steve to anyone that is in pain with back/neck problems. He saw me after 6 weeks of 10+ pain and within a week he had alleviated the pain through surgery and got me back to my healthy self. Previously I had struggled through 5 different doctors, none of them could find the problem, let alone fix it. Personally, I have been around doctors after being in the medical profession for 50 + years and I can tell you Steve Beer is one of the best I have had the privilege to meet.

We just saw Dr. Beer yesterday in Douglas. First off, he was an hour and a half late. Room was full of people waiting. WAY overbooked. So we finally get to see him and as NEW patients ,we of course had a lot of questions. KEEP LOOKING. This guy is rude,egotistical, doesn't listen and doesn't have time for you. Our appointment lasted MAYBE 10 minutes. We got to our car ,looked at each other and said "what just happened " . I went back in and got our records. We will continue our search.

Last summer, I ruptured a disc in my neck. After several treatments from other doctors as well as a painful shot, the pain not only persisted but also intensified. As a result, I went to Dr. Beer. He came highly recommended, and he and his staff were very professional and friendly. I really appreciate the time Dr. Beer and his staff took to inform me of every aspect of my injury before the surgery, which was a complete success, and I've been pain free for over a year. Consummate Professionals!

Dr Beer did a fusion, and hardware removal surgery on me in 2014.. What was supposed to be 2-3 hour surgery ended up being more than 7. Removing the hardware left me with widespread damage to my bladder along other things. Pain management in the hospital after surgery was cruel. I have had four spine surgeries and this one was handled badly. After tests came back verifying damage, he had his PA tell me to leave the office, then they refused to make an appointment for me to talk to him directly.

Dr. Beer is a phenomenal surgeon and doctor. He is always so nice and he is honest and upfront with his patients. He listens to every question and concern of each patient while making sure he addresses each of those. The downside to that is that it oftentimes puts him behind, thus making the wait time in his office quite lengthy.

Worked through Dr. Beer's office to treat my mom's back condition. This doctor stopped accepting medicaid; even previous to this, the practice seemed to treat us as a low priority patient. Even if you aren't medicaid, I would recommend shopping around for a practice with a social conscience.
in Wheatland, WY |
The office staff is disorganized, unhelpful, and rude. My mother waited over 2 months for an appointment; she's been a patient for several years. The last two times she's had to wait 2 hours before she could see the Dr. The last time, he wasn't even there, even though she'd scheduled an appointment to discuss surgeries. The PA was kind, but he didn't listen to her, and he couldn't provide the help she needed. We are looking for a different Dr. now, one who actually cares about his patients.

had a rough surgery with this guy as my surgeon still recuperating after 9 months.....
in Laramie, WY |
The staff and Dr. Beer have been nothing short of incredible for me. He explained the procedure and my options to my wife and I. His staff has called me to follow up a few times to see how my recovery was going. They made a very bad situation not just bearable but pleasant. I can't say enough good things!
