Cumming, GA |
I was very happy with the care I received from Dr. Beckworth and his staff. I've had no major issues since my back procedure.
Atlanta, GA |
I had been struggling with back pain for almost six months prior to seeing Dr. Beckworth. I'd already had a bad experience with a doctor from another practice, and I was nervous about a new doctor. Dr. Beckworth and his entire team were wonderful and professional. He fully explained the source of my pain and the various treatment options and lifestyle changes. I'm now back to living my life again without constant, crippling back pain.
Smyrna, GA |
I recommend Dr. Beckworth to anyone experiencing back pain or back related extremities pain. He is patient, thorough, and professional.
in Conyers, GA |
Dr. Beckworth spent a great deal of time explaining my condition. He talked to me during the procedure explaining what was happening. I even enjoyed his corny jokes.
in Decatur, GA |
Dr. Beckworth is an extremely compassionate man. He understands when a patient is anxious about having a needle stuck in their back, and he will take you by the hand and in a calm voice, will explain the procedure.

Dr. Beckworth's Care Philosophy

Dr. Beckworth treats spine and musculoskeletal disorders non-surgically.  He utilizes appropriate therapy programs, lifestyle interventions and non-invasive procedures to help with pain and function.

Dr. Beckworth says...

Dr. Beckworth works at the Emory Spine Center, the largest spine center in the US.  He is board certified in Physiatry (Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation), Electrodiagnostic Medicine and Pain Medicine.  He has won multiple teacher of the year awards for the Emory Department of PM&R residency program where he is currently the associate residency program director.  He is a research division member with the Spine Intervention Society.  Previously he was a section editor for Spineline, a publication of the North American Spine Society.
