Dr. Beecum takes the time to answer any questions you have and discuss your circumstances with you until you are completely satisfied. I highly recommend this doctor for her professionalism and focus on the patient's needs.
Daytona Beach, FL |
Dr. Beecum and her staff are all caring and compassionate people. Everyone makes you feel comfortable and puts you at ease from the moment you open the front door until you leave. They are all great and I would highly recommend Dr. Beecum (which I have already sent family members to her) for anyone looking for a physician whether it be for a new Dr. or if you are looking to chance Dr.'s.
