Dr. Beard is a wonderful doctor. However, I encountered a lot of trouble with office staff who were to get back to me about appts, etc. I love BSW\'s online portal. But not every question can be handled that way, particularly since you need to be a patient before using.

My concerns were met with immediate defensive and disrespectful tone..... as if questioning anything about the procedure was a personal attack. This was prior to any definitive effort made to find objective answers. Since then, the doctor and team investigated and verified concrete answers above my expectations. I am happy and confident and would rate the doctor higher at this time.
