I am a physician. I consider Dr. Beers to be the role model of what an internal medicine specialist and physician should be. He is absolutely outstanding and brilliant and kind. I am lucky to have him as my doctor.

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.

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.

I do not recommend any product or service. I will tell others my experience and let them decide if the product or service is for them.My visit went well with Dr Beers. He ordered an A1C blood test and a 4th Covid shot. Then I sat and waited. After 30 minute wait (it Is now 1115) I went to the nurses station and no body was there. I then went to the reception desk and asked how to find someone to do the blood test and give me the shot. They found a tech to complete those functions. A 1020 hr's appointment stretched to after 1200 hr's. I don't think that the nurses and techs checked to see that all the ordered tasks were complete before going to lunch. I had to send me copes for a noon appointment. I think planning 90 min in my schedule for routine medical care should be enough.

Dr Beers has been seeing [name removed] for years. He has treated him like a regular person. Even though his disability keeps him from answering in correct way. Dr Beers has a unique special way he treats [name removed]. I wish all Internrsts and reg Doctors were the same.

Dr Beers has been my PCP for 20 years. Through every health care provider change, my FIRST requirement was that my carrier be one that allowed me to remain In his care. His incredible wealth of knowledge has kept me alive when I absolutely should be dead.I have had a cascade of life threatening Illnesses, and under his care I am thriving. His habit of reviewing each patients health records that is seeing that day, is incredibly rare, and is very beneficial to his clients. He has called me at home, he has given up his lunch to see me immediately, he is the best possible physician. I have seen many healthcare providers in my life, including some excellent examples. None compare to Doctor Beers, he Is better at his profession at nearly 72, than many fresh graduates are In their 20s and 30s. As for reception, they are invariably kind and helpful. Even as the staff has changed over the years, the level of service has not. I also use the services of the Medication Management Team, they are absolutely wonderful. Lab services phlebotomists draw my blood very often, I have never had a bad experience with a blood draw. Even when I have had to have a second stick (my veins are scarred from years of chemotherapy), It Is painless.

Dr. Beers and I have worked together since [year removed] or so. He is very familiar with my complete medical history. A top professional, we often discuss the most medical/scientific findings relevant to a condition or concern. A very decent, genuine and empathic MD! I have never had any unsatisfactory experiences. He has been extremely helpful over many years right down to our mtg this week. He carefully explained my current concern/issue and related it to known medical history. Very helpful visit as was our last visit regarding possible hearing loss.

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.

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.
