Dr is the best. Takes his time and really listens

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I have been Dr. Beers' patient for 33 years. He continues to be an amazing doctor. He Is respectful, listens to me, asks questions, and treats me as a partner In my own health care. He is open minded and helps me explore various options. He is holistic and looks at all aspects of my life and how they contribute to my well being. Dr. Beers Is informed about current medical options and answers my questions comprehensively. I feel valued as a human being rather than a set of medical issues. He Is warm and Interesting with a good sense of humor. I have previously changed health insurance providers when they stopped contracting with Legacy Medical Group in order to keep Douglas Beers as my PCP. I am completely happy with the care I receive from him. I recommend to other people regularly.

Doug has been our family Doc for some time. So yes we may be a bit biased. Very knowledgeable. Honest. Will not comment on extraordinary things until he has studied the situation. I may not agree withh all his judgements yet his remarks are always on the table and highly respected.

I love Dr. Beers teamYou all are Awesome

  Apr 27, 2023
This clinic feels like family. My only complaint is that appts are made too close together, which makes a patient sit in the treatment room sometimes for a half hr. Dr. Beers always gives you your time as needed and is very thorough.

  Apr 27, 2023
Dr Beers is a good listener and reassuring Provider. The medical assistant was also good and courteous . I had a good positive experience

  Apr 19, 2023
I have no access to my records via the internet!! I spent 2 hours having a technician help me rest my password & now, it adds something for my user name & kicks me off every time!!

  Apr 18, 2023
In fact, I have recommended Dr Beers to someone who was looking for the Platonic ideal in a primary care physician.

  Apr 13, 2023
Dr Beers is guided by science and kindness. I can't imagine a better doctor, and I feel fortunate to be a patient of his.

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.

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.

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!
