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.

Dr. Beard was incredible about explaining the different procedure options that I might qualify for and what the next steps would be in order to get the insurance to cover whichever procedure we agreed was best. She was very informative and patient with my questions.
