Very good

  Apr 1, 2024
We were delighted to get the emergency appointment with Dr Beers. He corrected a (seeming) misdiagnosis given a couple of days previous at a clinic. His correction, along with understandable explanation of the new diagnosis and reason for the replacement medication made Dr Beers our hero! His citing of relevant literature pertinent to his diagnosis (including citing of appropriate medication for the said diagnosis) continue to be appreciated and keep him in this writer's "stellar" column. Thank you Legacy!

As always, Dr. Beers demonstrated professionalism and interest in me as a patient and person. Always an excellent visit.

(He doesn't take new clients.) Dr Beers has taught me how to take care of myself and manage my constellation of health challenges, so my latest visit was to confirm a diagnosis for an extreme health event. I have very poor lower leg circulation, DVT events, veinous stasis, etc. During the ice storm I had two large, very painful subdural hematomas and massive swelling on my right leg. Reluctant to visit the emergency room because of my likely mortality from exposure to patients with active respiratory illnesses, I treated myself at home as I had for DVT, elevated leg, compression hose, rest and moderate exercise. Dr Beers told me that I had done exactly what he would have recommended that I do. In 23 years in his care, he, the absolute best physician possible, has saved my life, educated me and partnered with me in balancing the multiple health challenges in my life. The fact that I am able to enjoy my poor health happily is a testament to his level of care!

Dr Beers is definitely the best Doctor I've ever had.

Dr. Beers is a wonderful doctor! I recently survived a very traumatic event at work and he has been very kind and responsive to me, even though I largely will need several issues addressed through a worker's comp doctor. I have really appreciated his professionalism and genuine concern in reaching out to me and following up with me. He is a tremendous asset to the medical profession and I feel very fortunate to be his patient!

Dr Beers is a top notch physician. I have been a patient of his for well over 25 years. I will continue to see him until he retires. I have the upmost confidence in him.

  Jan 11, 2024
Dr Beers is not just a doctor, but a teacher in a way that explains in lay terms what ails me. Doctor, meaning in Latin is teacher. He adheres to that.

Dr. Douglas Beers goes over and beyond any PCP to not only address the current concerns, but he listens and addresses ALL of the potential way to prevent certain possible outcome, health risks, and discusses your personal needs for change, minimizing risks. He not only listens, but hears and responds to the needs without any drama or condescending attitude.

  Jan 3, 2024
I came to see Dr. Beers as a potential new PCP, as my Dr. Is Leaving Legacy. I was most impressed with him, he had done a complete review of my medical history. He asked me pertinent questions. He allowed me time to ask him many questions and to voice my health concerns. I was very pleased and impressed with Dr. Beers. I am very happy to have on my medical team.

Great visit

  Dec 18, 2023
Dr. Beers is the gold standard of an internal medicine physician. I had the pleasure of working with his patients (as an ICU nurse) before meeting him, and going to him as a patient. He treats all his patients, regardless of their ethnicity, income, social status, orientation or diagnosis with utmost respect and dignity. His enthusiasm for listening and working with his patients is obvious. He is current on skills and knowledge and has made helpful referrals. I truly feel I can discuss any problem with him, no matter how private or embarrassing. He is the finest physician I have ever known, in over 3 decades as an ICU nurse.

  Dec 13, 2023
Dr. Beers is exceptional in explaining what the problems are or could be, what the latest research is, and factoring in my own observations into his analysis. I always learn something important.

  Dec 7, 2023
Dr. Beers keeps up with current research, knows my history, and takes the time to address all the concerns I bring to a visit.

Only problem was having to go to Vancouver for my blood draw.

  Nov 13, 2023
I was able to get a cancelled appointment to see Dr. Beers the same day I called. It was for rapid growth of a growth on my scalp that I was becoming concerned about. Dr Beers took time to discuss this and a lot of discussion about my overall health.

  Nov 13, 2023
I'm in a wheelchair. Stack of chairs in front of check in window. MA didn't help clear a path to go back to a room. Got stuck in the restroom due to sticky lock and my poor grip. Restroom and lobby have most of the lights burned out.

I have been pleased to be a patient ( friend ) of this provider for 31 years

  Oct 26, 2023
Discussed a wide variety of minor health concerns I had, and Dr. Beers was extremely thorough on sharing detailed feedback on everything, leaving me feeling better about my overall health. Dr. Beers was running behind due to a patient showing up 30 minutes late earlier in the day. I appreciated being able to get both my Covid and flu shots while there.

  Oct 25, 2023
Could not understand the fellow who took me back to see Dr Beers. Probably more my issue

  Oct 24, 2023
Consistently positive experiences with Legacy and I thoroughly trust Dr. Beers how lucky am I?

I always value my conversations with Dr Beers, who speaks in collaborative language about my health concerns and the ways WE may approach managing them. He is sharp, an excellent listener and sees the whole person. I am so fortunate to be in is care.

  Oct 24, 2023
I would prefer speaking directly with a person rather than leaving a machine message and waiting for a call back. I understand why it is this way, but don't like it.

  Oct 19, 2023
Dr Beers is the best doctor I've ever had. It would be an amazing health care system if every provider in this country were as thoughtful, concise, caring and knowledgeable as he is.

  Oct 19, 2023
Dr Beers is very thorough and discusses each lab result. Lab tech Robert was very friendly and efficient in administering vaccinations

  Oct 19, 2023
Dr. Beers has been my provider for over 30 years. He has my most confidence and the only reason I would not recommend him to someone else is because I want to make sure he is always available to me.

  Oct 16, 2023
Good questioning on how I am feeling during my appointment and giving me answers to my issues.

Good md. Rapport

  Aug 16, 2023
I have been seeing Dr.Beers for a very long time. Him and all of his staff have always been kind and compassionate. Sometimes the wait is long, but that is true everywhere now. Not just in healthcare. The wait is worth the quality of care I receive from Dr. Beers.
