This is the second time I've visited Dr. Beer - both visits under challenging circumstances involving an injury to my eye.Dr. Beer is calm, gracious and very helpful. He does not rush and is very thoughtful. He is also clearly an expert in his field. The team at the front desk were also very kind and helpful, which I was thankful for under the less than ideal circumstances. I would highly recommend Dr. Beer.

I saw Dr. Beer for a second opinion. There was no wait time at all, and he confirmed the other medicalpractitioner’s diagnosis. I would see him again and would recommend him.

Thoroughly professional with an easy manner. Presents all the facts and takes time to provide explanations. Not pushy - just provides options and the relevant details relating to each. Highly recommend!

I was very nervus because of an eye condition I feared was getting worse: Dr Beer was very thorough in the examination and did several tests to better diagnose my condition. He was very patient with all my questions and explainedeverything to me in plain English. I did not feel rushed or patronized. And he also told me about what I should do to prevent loss of eye sight (including dietary supplements) and established a good schedule of future consultations.

Great visit, straight to the point! Previous doctors led me to expect that I would have to come back for contact lenses (wait for shipment) but he had a supply in the office! Walked out with new contacts and a trial supply. Nice doctor, too! Will definitely come back

I was disappointed that I was asked to fill out the same forms that I had taken the time to fill out online. When I asked I was told the questions were different. They were not. reception was a bit unfriendlyand disinterested even slightly rude. However, I liked the doctor . He was professional ,knowledgeable and prompt.

I really appreciated my appointment with Dr. Beer. My former ophthalmologist apparently moved, and I had to find a new eye doctor. I have had cataract surgery, and I had been followed for the possibility of glaucoma. I was able toschedule my appointment within a week, and I was seen immediately upon my arrival. I was comfortable with Dr. Beer and feel his practice is completely professional and competent.
