I have had good experiences with Dr. Beers and would recommend him to any friend or family. The only questionable treatment I ever had with this office is when I was diagnosed with Morgellons disease. I believe that I did not have enough of a medical background to fully understand Moregellons. Dr. Beers is the best doctor that I have ever seen.

Dr Beers and I discussed every concern I had at this time. Along with some other tests the doctor ordered for me, he also encouraged and reminded me that I am late for my mammogram. I will be getting it done soon with my other tests.

Dr. Beers is the best doctor I've ever had. He is very generous with his time, patiently responds to any and all questions, and explains complex issues in a straightforward and understandable way. He has also provided me very useful and practical recommendations related to diet and exercise. I highly recommend him!

Dr. Beers was present, kind, knowledgeable as usual. He listens well and explains things clearly. I have been seeing him for over 30 years and he has always provided me with good care. He treats me as a partner in determining my own health care and focuses on wellness care. I leave appointments with a sense of well-being.

As expected, Dr. Beers established rapport immediately, listened to my health concerns (e.g., HBP), discussed with me a possible strategy, while sharing pertinent "latest research" info. He is friendly and professional.

I have known Douglas Beers, MD since around 1986-87. He is a very ethical and science informed MD. He is the best PCP/MD I have ever had. I have great respect for his outstanding care for a wide range of diverse individuals. Dr. Beers is always well informed regarding my medical history and we have a great working relationship. I have never had a bad experience with Dr. Beers. He was very supportive and science informed when I needed his help during a sharp rebound in major depression following a careful titration off Paroxetine with my psychiatrist, which unfortunately was not successful. Restoration of Paroxetine by my psychiatrist worked. When my psychiatrist became disabled by a stroke, Dr. Beers took over prescribing my psychiatric medications. Fortunately, for me, Dr. Beers is well informed in that regard (as am I given my career in mental health). I trust him 100%. He has been very supportive of my successful climbing experiences post retirement and gave me wise and informed advise regarding safer skiing and the need to avoid any closed head injuries.

The only area that bothers me is how charts are written up saying things I do not agree with. When at Emmanuel, for example, "they" wrote that I presented with "chest pain". That is not true and I specifically told them I had chest PRESSURE. Pain and pressure are two different things. I have noticed statements in my chart that do not reflect reality and that bothers me. I specifically asked them to change pain to pressure. I do not know if that is the case. In that case, by the way, they mentioned them putting me on nitro. I never even filled the script. When at Emmanuel they wanted to make me take a prilosec/lidocaine combo and a shot for DVT. They said it was preventative. I did not need that and it should have not been offered. The average patient would not know enough to decline. I was in medicine for 30 years and know. This sort of thing is aggravating. Dr. Beers, on the other hand, is a fantastic, knowledgeable, helpful, considerate, and good physician. Keep up the good work.

Dr Doug is without question the best doctor I have ever had. He genuinely cares for his patients, knows their history, carefully considers each possible diagnosis and follows through with after care and checkups. I wish that every doctor was as compassionate, considerate, caring and professional as he is. But he's one of a kind, and I am so fortunate to have him as my physician.

Visits are never on time in this office. I do not appreciate having to have an office visit with the DR just renew a perscription that I hav ebeen taking for years. It is a waste of the DR and my time especially when visits are mostly 45 minutes late.

Dr Beers is an ideal primary care doctor--personable, smart, open to questions about anything. My only issue this time around was an 18 month old charge popping up when I was checking in. Instead of looking into it (since it may have been a coding error), reception told me to call Billing who were helpful but not very adept at handling the issue and following up with me. General comment: the office is pretty drab (and not very comfortable) compared to other clinics at Legacy and elsewhere.

My wife dropped me off early and I was given a quite place to wait until the Doctor could see me. We talked about my condition and symptoms then the doctor did some tests on me and quickly came to a diagnosis.

The office lab closed early the receptionist didn't know how to get labs drawn due to prior covid scheduling. They could have called the hospital lab but instead said I could check. I went over and had my blood drawn quickly. I would have taken the receptionist a quick second to call the hospital I'd hope she would have done that for a pt who may have medical issues that would have made going to hospital more difficult luckily I work for legacy so know. She should have as well!! This was a newer receptionist not the usual people I'm familiar with who are generally very helpful ND knowledgeable.

The provider left the room before i had an understanding of how to treat a particular skin lesion and he had to be requested for a return visit to clarify the treatment needed, but did so after around ten minutes. He always i very thorough, but this time, somewhat hurried.

Dr. Beers is the best. he has been my doctor for over [removed] years and he always knows me and my medical record when I see him. I currently have to drive hours for my appts so its a whole day a spend just to see him which I gladly do. I have ms so sometimes I need extra help understanding things and he's great at explaining things so I get it. he always goes the extra mile to make sure I get the best care possible and he's very thorough. Dr. Beers keeps up on all the ms stuff so that he can help me because over the years he has had to fill in as my neurologist a few times when I was without one and that's been very helpful to me and my medical needs in all aspects of my life. Dr. Beers is the best and I would recommend him 100 times over and anyone that can be lucky enough to have him for a doctor should be grateful because doctors like him are hard to come by these days.

The lab situation for this visit is/was deplorable. There was no lab personnel to draw blood. The nurse called the lab and there was a 2 hour 45 minutes wait. This seems to be the same situation for EVERY visit. To date, despite labs being ordered, I still have not scheduled a lab appointment.
