A long overdue THANK YOU to Dr. Beer
Many, many years ago you helped my son greatly. He had crushed one of his knuckles in a car door. He had recently lost his job and he did not have any insurance. Mount Carmel East Hospital referred him to you. The hospital called you and you agreed to see him immediately. You preformed surgery on him the next day, right before you were to leave town. He was followed up by the resident. He did fabulous and has never forgotten you or the help you extended to him; you operated free of charge. He has done well in life, he has worked for the same company for the last 24 years, he has a stepson and a 22 year old daughter. I could not remember your name but he remembered it immediately and he was forever thankful for your help. I believe he has also paid it forward by helping others in need. I just wanted to thank you and to let you know what an impression you left on my son. You may not remember him, Adam Smith, but he certainly remembers you and your kindness. Thank you!!!

Dr. Beer has done five surgeries on my hands. I find him to be extremely knowledgeable and personable. As I have gotten to know him over the years he recognizes me and takes a personal interest in my well-being. After I had one of the surgeries, I developed an inflammation —-NOT an infection—-and he demonstrated concern and monitored my progress very closely. The joints in my hands are pain free where I had the surgeries and my quality of life is greatly improved. Initially he recommended non-invasive options before recommending surgery. I find him to be confident in his expertise without being arrogant or condescending. I recommend him without reservation.

Explanations clear and complete. Doesn't do unnecessary procedures. The office is very well run and appointments are met on time. Wish he was my primary care doc.

Deplorable. Doesn’t care about post op pain or checking in you afterwards. His main deal is getting you to schedule surgery. MA is only way to get a message thru - no portal, etc. MA thinks she’s the dr. Find a dr that is good & cares about how you are doing

Dr Beer may be a good surgeon, but don't expect him to care at all about rehabilitation post surgery. I had surgery on my hand a year ago, and continue to have residual negative effects, including a numb thumb . He has never reached out to ask how I am doing even though I have called his office to complain of continuing pain, post surgery. I asked him THREE times if he would refer me for Occupational Therapy and his answer each time was "You don't need that". I do not recommend him. Surgery is only half the battle. Rehab is critical.

Very impressive. Caring and accommodating. Knowledgeable. Great bedside manner. It is important to him that you understand what the issue is. He speaks to you in a manner that is respectful. Many doctors are condescending and make you feel ignorant. Dr Beer is awesome! What can I say? ??

Right diagnosis the first time, especially for an extremely hard to diagnose issue. Great surgeon, quick and efficient. I have had a lot of issues being very young with a lot of medical issues being over looked, and he took my concerns very seriously.

I have been been with Dr. Beer for approximately 15 years. He's done both elbows, both thumbs and trigger finger. While his schedule is full I would never consider going to anyone else. He is the best.

Just tried (5/11/2018) to make an appointment for a shot in an arthritic thumb he had done in the past and was told next available is July 18. Didn't even ask about the shoulder. That is just not acceptable.

For the first time in Tucson, I was referred to a Doctor that I trust and was actually interested in what I had to say relative to my condition. I would recommend Dr. Beer to anyone that has a shoulder problem and needs a resolution

I have had both hands carpel tunnel and trigger fingers fixed plus both shoulders fixed and have had great success with his work. I consider him a fantastic surgeon and confident at his work which make me relaxed when having a procedure done with him and his staff. Hats off to him and his staff. Phil Costello
