Almost 1-1/2 hr. sitting in room before blood test - The staff forgot I was waiting...

My doctor, Doug Beers, is the most informative and thorough physician I have ever worked with. He is a "rock star" as far as I am concerned!!

Finding Dr Beers was one of the good things in my HIV journey. He is patient, thoughtful, personal, and warm. His questions and suggestions are alwys germain and on point. I highly recommend him as a paractitioner and as a human being.

I have worked with Dr. Beers as my PCP for almost 35 years. He is an excellent doctor with great communication skills including, but not limited to a great sense of humor. We discuss- when relevant- best evidenced based research from a collaborative perspective. He is well informed about a wide range of medical and/or other subjects. Legacy and his patients is/are fortunate that Dr. Beers is still working.

  Jan 3, 2023
Dr Beers was warm and welcoming being my first appointment with him

  Dec 27, 2022
Visits with Dr. Beers are always good. Most are checkups as I am rarely ill.

  Dec 22, 2022
I have never had a poor experience with any associate at Legacy. They are always friendly, efficient and get me checked in and ready to go. I really appreciate staff getting me (on short notice) to see Dr Beers for injuries from an auto accident last May. Staff got the insurance info from the person who collided with us for billing my accident out quickly. Thank you everyone.

  Dec 21, 2022
Dr Beers is the best provider I've had in my life.

  Dec 20, 2022

  Dec 15, 2022
A very good doctor!!

  Dec 15, 2022
Exceptional health care concerns addressed with plans of actions. I am pleased to be accepted as a returning patient.

  Dec 14, 2022
This office could be so much better if it ran on time. Everything is usually late. Can also be very difficult to get an appointment. Put the blood draw option back in the clinic. There should not be a requirement to have an office visit to refill a prescription. It might be easier to get an appointment when you need ift if there were not done many unnecessary required visits. This comes across as just a way to charge more money than to offer better care.

  Dec 14, 2022
Pleasant visit.

  Dec 12, 2022
Our family loves Dr. Beers!

Dr. Beers is unique, a singularity, one of a kind, unparalleled.

  Nov 29, 2022
I have been seeing Dr. Beers for many years. He always treats me as a partner in my health care. He listens carefully and asks good questions. He is knowledgeable and compassionate. I always feel heard and respected. Legacy is very fortunate to have him on staff.

  Nov 21, 2022
Best doc I've have in long as I can remember.

  Nov 17, 2022
I have been a patient of Dr. Beers for over 25 years. He has always treated me with respect and professionalism. He has never been in a hurry and has always listened. When he retires he will be hard to replace.

  Nov 16, 2022
Dr. Beers is an excellent doctor. Always listen to your question/concerns.

  Nov 15, 2022
Dr Beers was great. But the exam room was icy cold and there's no blankets available. I had an EKG done and shivered through it all. After Dr Beers was done, the physicians assistant didn't return to give me directions and I sat in the exam room long enough that I finally stepped out to see if they forgot me. The doctor also said I would pick up a heart monitor the same day, but found out at the desk I would need another appointment. Just seems to be a lack of continuity of care.

  Nov 1, 2022
Very helpful!

  Oct 25, 2022
Dr. Beers is awesome. We love Legacy. Recently I had a visit to Ottsu. Ottsu is horrible and contemptible.

I, as a pediatric medical provider have never seen an annual wellness exam being done by asking questions only; If I had not asked for Dr. Beers to check my ears for a possible cerumen impaction or ask for a pelvic and pap smear, I would have not been touched!!!! What about the person who has a melanoma or precancerous mold on the skin that they cannot see, a lump in the breast and no mammogram was requested? I, as a provider would have done the whole spectrum of S-O-A-P and a thorough examination. I have an Ophthalmologist for the glaucoma issue, a dentist for the dental needs, and I stay on top of my health by asking questions on MY RECORD. The time has changed, I know, but an annual P.E. Where you onlyl have a Q and A time together? Is this the new standard, usual and customary way an annual P.E. Is done? Dr. Beers was always one who took the time to ask, share and examine my body, at least look into the ears and listen to the chest for any cardiac symptoms, but not this time. What is happening? I felt somewhat insulted to have an annual P.E. Via Q/A only. This is the new standard of doing a P.E.? I would never bill an insurance company the billing rate for a total P.E.after dping a NO TOUCH, Q/A exam. I actually received a report of one of the providers that Dr. Beers referred me to for a right hip wound and he listed the total exam being done (HEENT/NECK/CR/ABD/EXTREMETIES/REFLEXES, etc. And he never touched me. He pulled down the dressing on the wound and inspected the drainage, but never touched me. I was appalled and insulted to have this NO TOUCH physical exam. I am being honest and sincere in all that I say.

  Oct 20, 2022
Dr. Beers is the best! He easily cites evidence from medical literature when answering my questions (eg, regarding sleep, as well as how Losartan and Carvedilol work). He listens, is supportive and builds on my strengths! (Give him a raise!)

  Oct 17, 2022
As always, Dr. Beers was personable, professional in his advice and a caring listener. I appreciate his honesty and suggestions, and felt better about my overall health after my visit.

  Oct 12, 2022

Length of experience, communication & knowledge.

Long wait in waiting room, but it was explained by Dr Beers why. Very good reason for it. Dr Beers is the best primary care physician over the course of my 60 years. Bar none!

  Jul 11, 2022
He is an excellent physician and knows his trade!

  Jul 5, 2022
I am satisfied with Dr Beers for my health care. Only one thing I wish he had done in the beginning with my injury would have been a culture in the beginning instead of the end.

  Jun 30, 2022
He takes time to listen to my issues and concerns. Lets me see the charts and talks about what to improve on.

  Jun 22, 2022
Everything was right to the point,quick in and back to work.

  Jun 21, 2022
Wait time was a bit long. Dr. Beers seemed very interested in hearing about any health concerns I might have.

  Jun 20, 2022
Hopefully, Legacy will continue facilitating Dr. Beers training next generation of health providers as he is a great model to follow. He is a terrific MD with great communications skills and a very wide range of specific medical/scientific skills. He has been my PCP since around 1986-87; I am very grateful for all his care.

  Jun 16, 2022
Need better follow up.
