Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Bean is very kind and gracious, the office personnel very friendly and professional. My family members have been going to Dr. Bean since the beginning of 1990. He is so sweet and I will definitely go back PRN.
Have been a patient for more than 15 years.
From Dr. Bean to all of the staff, very professional and extremely friendly. I was very pleased, it was my first visit and I will be back as may be necessary.
As it should be
I lik d that I never felt rushed during the appointment and he listened to my problems taking care of them before leaving his office.i would highly recommend Dr Bean.
Dr. Bean was wonderful and has a humorous manner. He is considerate of your questions and puts you at ease with the answers.
He has always been wonderful with me and my sister. He listens and has a sense of humor.
Doctor listens well and gives sound advice. Very professional and friendly. Friendly front ofgice. Impressed!
The visit with the doctor was excellent. However, the check in was painful: I had filled out all the information online at Zocdoc but the administrative person at the doctor's office responsible for receiving the paperwork had not received it. So I had to fill it all out all over again, on paper before I could see the doctor. It was a frustrating experience. I recommend that somebody confirms that the online information actually arrives at its destination.
Dr. Bean was excellent as always, and so is his staff.
An outstanding physician

Nothing to complain about! Dr. Bean is very thorough and personable. Office staff is very friendly and efficient.
Dr. Bean was very thorough and informative. He was willing to spend whatever time was needed for a thorough examination and even checked areas I had not been concerned about to make sure all of my concerns were dealt with completely. I would gladly recommend him to family and friends.
Dr. Bean is a caring, competent professional. He is thoughtful and thorough.
Great Dr. Straight to the point and simple with great professionalism.
First visit was simply a consultation. Dr. Bean is extremely knowledgeable and takes time to explain all of the necessary information. Staff is courteous and helpful. Would recommend based on this visit - but would like to do another survey once we begin treatment!
Everything got taken care of very nicely. Highly recommend Dr.Bean
I have seen Dr. Bean before so knew what to expect. Dr. Bean is very efficient and professional and I trust his opinions
I have know Dr. Bean for over 15 years and I would not trust anyone else.
I visited Dr. Bean after having a TERRIBLE experience nearby earlier this week with the Dermatological Association Of Texas (on 1401 Binz St). Dermatological Association Of Texas tried to make me pay out of pocket even though my insurance covers dermatology, I refused and left immediately. I think it was a blessing in disguise because I ended up making an appointment to see Dr. Bean instead. First of all, I had ZERO issues with my insurance at this office and paid my usual co-pay. Office staff were very friendly and accommodating unlike the rude and incompetent staff at Dermatological Association Of Texas down the street. Dr. Bean sat down with me and listened to my concerns, asked me questions about my previous skin history and then gave me his assessment. The medication will not even cost me anything because of a program and my insurance (so thankful as a student). He said to call back in a month after using the medication if it hasn't worked, but he said it's been very successful in his experience treating this condition. I'm hopeful it will work as I googled his assessment afterwards and it seems spot on. Wait time was about 15 minutes, not bad. Would definitely recommend this dermatologist!
I have been to multiple dermatologists. This is the first time that one has literally sat down, had a personal conversation with me- included me in the plan of care. He took the time to find coupons for me. He is just a kind man. I look forward to my follow up with him. I did have to wait a little bit, but I think that's because he takes time to talk to his patients (unlike the 5 minute drive by you will receive at other derm offices). would recommend him
While dr bean was perfectly peasant, waiting for over an hour to have a very cursory examination was not an experience I'll be paying to repeat.
Dr. Bean was professional and efficient. I look forward to seeing him annually.
Dr. Bean was running late but spent adequate time with me as a new patient and didn't make me feel rushed. He knows his stuff and prescribed me a medication that will hopefully help me out. He even asked me to call him in a week so he could evaluate my progress without having to come in for a Re-Check appointment. Really appreciate that, especially if it saves me a copay!
He was thorough and spent the time to explain the diagnosis and treatment options. Highly reccomend him.
Dr Bean and his staff were dealt with me better than most physicians I have visited. I felt very comfortable and pleased with all parts of office visit.
The visit was fine as was the staff on duty. The only turn off I experienced was that I had to fill out paperwork manually AFTER I had prefilled it via zocdoc. I had filled it out since last week but for whatever reason had not been printed out by person in charge.
this doctor knows his business very professonal.
Listened carefully and responded thoughtfully. Offered multiple treatment options before deciding on a first course of action. Minimal paperwork. Courteous and efficient staff. Actually saw Dr. Bean before the appointed time. Very efficient but never felt rushed. Excellent experience!!
Pues es un doctor muy Profesional y sabe muy bien lo k hace
I was very satisfied with his bedside manners. He made me feel as though he listened to what I said. He gave me a diagnosis and a solution. Checkout was simple
Dr Bean is always extremely knowledgeable. Gets right to the point. Very helpful. Everything you could ask for.
Dr. Bean takes the time with his patients. He listens and makes sure the patient understands their condition.
Dr. Bean and his staff were friendly and professional. I would definitely go back.
The doctor sent me right away to a doctor in the same building who was able to take care of my problem. He was very helpful.
Great, as always.
I would very highly recommend Dr. Bean. He was very professional, as were his staff members. His pricing is fair and the care he administered was excellent.
listens, works fast, happy camper!
The doctor was great. The same cannot be said for the front desk. long story short I paid the full visit rate as she claimed she checked with Insurance - not possible as the data on their website says differently, I know very well that I have met my deductible. She told me that I will get a cheque from the office manager for refund. Basically I paid extra for her laziness...I did not want to waste my time so I paid full..
As a new patient, I had to fill out a couple of forms. I had already filled out the other forms online. The staff was courteous and efficient. The doctor came in and sat down and chatted with me regarding my visit. He prescribed a medication and gave me one refill advising me that I could call for an additional refill if my symptoms were still present.
Both Dr. Bean and his medical staff were very friendly and caring. I was surprised by the amount of time the doctor spent with me. He removed a small pill sized spot of skin for a biopsy and the procedure was absolutely painless! His nurse spent lots of extra time to make sure the bleeding had stopped before applying the bandage. I felt very well treated and not rushed at all. I would definitely recommend this practice.
Dr. Bean and his staff were friendly, courteous and professional. There was an issue with my secondary insurance; I had the wrong card but they overcame the problem and everything went smoothly. I scheduled a second, check up appointment in three weeks. Way to go ZocDoc!
The entire staff is really sweet and Dr. Bean definitely knows what he is doing. My eczema cleared off right away with the medicine he prescribed.
Dr. Bean is a great doctor. His office was busy today which caused him to run behind schedule. I've found him to be punctual for most of my office visits.
I had a good experience. I would definetly recommend Dr. Bean!!
Love this doctor!!! He's the best Dermatologist in town!!!
He is about my age and I like that.
Very efficient and professional. The doctor was able to see me before my scheduled appointment. I think I was there for the entire time of thirty minutes or less. I even got a free sample of body wash!
The doctor listen to my complaints then we talked about my treatment plan, and we discussed the side effects of taking medicines on a regular basis. I was really impressed with his honesty and level of professionalism.
Very professional and knew what he was doing with regard to my skin condition. Highly reccommended.
staff and receptionist fast 'n polite, Dr. exam as wanted,,solution done! Excellant!
He was a very nice doctor who really took the time to help me with my acne. I recommend him to everyone.
Dr. Bean has been my and my husband's dermatologist for many years. Although there are many other dermatologists closer to our home and office, we continue to consult with Dr. Bean, as he is very professional and easy to talk to.
Nice guy, seemed knowledgeable, but like too many Houston area physicians.. he's clearly double or triple booking his time slots. People shouldn't be waiting 75 minutes from an on-time arrival to see a doctor. Really.
Dr. Bean is extremely professional, kind and competent. He is a fantastic doctor who runs a cheerful and professional office! I cannot recommend him highly enough!
The wait was longer than anticipated. The staff didn't realize I was coming in because they don't check this until later in the morning- so book your appointment later! Also, no need to pre-fill paperwork because you have to do it there anyway. Dr. Bean was sweet, pleasant, and knew exactly what my issue was and how to fix it. I have no doubt my skin will look fantastic again soon! Also, the staff was very nice, they just seemed a little overwhelmed.
It was a good visit, he was very helpful and informative.
Great old type doctor...
The description of Dr. Bean's treatments is not entirely accurate. He does not typically do laser wart removal. He primarily focuses on freezing treatment as he sees this as the most successful.
Dr. Bean is the kind of man you hope to get as your doctor when you go in for a visit.
Dr. Bean was very reassuring & very knowledgeable about the concerns I had about possible skin cancer. He explained the different options in a way I could understand.It made me feel more at ease. I would highly recommend him.
Dr Bean is the best.
Awesome as always!
I had scheduled an appointment online the night before, they did look it up and there was less paperwork to fill out when I arrived. Although Zocdoc said that they used my ins. carrier(MHealth) they did not, though I fault zocdoc and not the Dr.'s office. I waited about 15 minutes and was seen before a couple of people that arrived just in front of me (I assume from scheduling my appt. online). Dr. Bean was courteous and knowledgeable. After checking my skin, he answered my questions and wasn't too lengthy. I was in and out with the needed prescriptions, but didn't feel rushed. I'd definitely go to him again (if he was in network).
Very nice! Helpful! Gives you time!
My appt was great. . Dr. Bean answered all my questions. I would recommend him to others.
Overall, Dr. Bean was great. I did have a long wait. Luckily, I had no immediate plans so it didn't interfere. Dr. Bean was quick, concise, asked questions, and gave me a clear answer. His patient load seems much older than I am, I would suggest going to him if you are 50+, although he treated me very well !
I completed my paperwork online, however when I arrived they said they couldn't access it! So I had to fill it out twice!!!
He was nice but his office could use an upgrade.
Excellent bedside manner and attentive staff...Highly recommended.
I was impressed by Dr. Bean's competence and demeanor and the friendliness of his staff. However, I did notice a heavy layer of dust and dirt on exposed parts of the examination table, and the examination and waiting rooms contained dirty, shabby chairs. A bit more care in these respects would be welcome.
The doctor answered all questions asked right away and in general very helpful.
Fine. He answered my questions and reassured me of any fears I had.
It was a very nice visit. Everything with smoothly and timely. The ladies in the front office were very nice and helpful. I didn't feel rushed at all. I will definitely be back.
I am very satisfied with my appointment with Dr. Bean.
strong, confident answers to all my questions; well done
Dr. Bean was professional, had a gentle demeanor and his staff cheerful, professional and very efficient! I highly recommend him for anyone needing a Dermatologist!
He quickly and efficiently solved a medical condition that I had been worrying about for a month.
Dr. Bean was kind, courteous, and patient. He took his time to explain everything.
He is an exceelent doctor.
I would highly recommend him. He listened intently and provided his insight. He has a nice bedside manner as well. Thanks.
Dr. Bean was awesome with a nice and helpful staff. He listened to my issues, explained what the problem was, and gave his recommendation. Would recommend.
Dr. Bean was very caring, however, his receptionist can be a bit more pleasant in dealing with the customers.
He's nice and professional but one thing I feel uncomfortable with is he didn't wear glove while did the physical exam and not wash his hand before and after that.
Professional and direct, understanding
The appointment was quick and efficient.
Dr.Bean is great, I would definitely see him again in the future.
I have no gripes or anything. Really helpful doctor.
Excellent. Dr. Bean addressed my medical issue skillfully and quickly.
Excellent doctor! Relaxing atmosphere! Good nurse!
Fine doctor. Plan to continue with him. Very pleased.
He was the best dermatologist I have ever been to. I went for an annual screening with 3 specific places to be checked. He did not overplay things and removed one spot. Then made time to remove a mole from my wife's chest and give her an annual screening. We will be back in 12 months for the next check-up.
very good, made me feel comfortable, friendly staff
Straightforward and professional, 40 years of experience but not dated. Listens, responds, answers questions fully without an overload of medical jargon. Staff obviously likes him and works well with him and patients. An minor aside- best of collection of current magazines I've ever seen.
Dr. Bean was considerate, professional, and seemed to have a good knowledge of his subject area. He allowed me to ask him many questions, and I did not feel rushed. I was pleased with my visit, and would recommend him.
Dr. Bean was not only knowledgable, but also easy to talk to.
He was helpful, attentive and reasonable. I would recommend to a prospective patient.
He listened really well and really seemed to care. He also asked for me to call him back to let him know how I was doing in a few days.
My visit was better than I expected. No long waiting period, and was seen immediately. Dr Bean was very knowledgable and helpful.
Office got backed up just after I arrived, so while I was served super promptly everyone after me seemed like they were in for a wait if even one had an issue that would take a long visit. It seemed some of them arrived early though, so I wouldn't base my opinion on potential overbooking on this single visit. Overall he was attentive, helpful, and asked me to check with him via phone in ten days rather than asking for a return visit, which saves those with a tight budget some money.
Had me waiting for over an hour, completely unacceptable. I will never go back here. I cannot stand people who waste my time and treat their customers like plebes.
He was informative. Pretty educated and confident
He took the time to explain the different options available and provided samples of the medications so I could find the one that works best before purchasing a prescription.
Professional, pleasant My problems weren't complicated, and he handled them quickly
He is a nice man and i think he is very knowledgeable, but i think his office time management is not the best.
Very professional! Listens carefully to your problem.
I would recommend him
He was supposed to follow up with me about my visit and never did, so I sought out another doctor.
He was great! I appreciated how thorough and polite he was with seeing me and caring for my needs and concerns. I am so pleased that I was able to see him and I would see him again and recommend him to anyone that I know.
The visit was great and very informative
I went to 2 other specialist before Dr. Bean and they did nothing to sove my problem and just through possible solutions so they could write a perscription and get me out in 5 minutes--probably late for their golf game. Dr. Bean was fantastic and my problem of 8 months has been solved. I can't say enough about this gentleman and his proffesionalism. YOU ROCK DOC BEAN !!!!!
He took care of my problem and gave me several options. He was quick but listened to my thoughts
He was terrific. Plus, he gave me a voucher that he had luin around for a free trial of a poison ivy treatment.
It's was really good .. The only thing I faced problem with is finding the sutie .. I hope that they will figure out away to show in which floor the sutie is ..
The Dr. & Staff were very nice. It took us longer to get there and park then to wait and see the Doctor Bean.
Parking was a problem. Wait was inexcusable. Kept in waiting room for 1 hour and 20 minutes with screaming child and extremely cold temperature. Some items in the treatment room looked to have been never cleaned. If these filthy items were not in use, they should be removed. Even though I had seen the doctor previously, there was no sign of my records. Even though none of my information had changed, I was asked to complete 7 pages of forms.
on time, very efficient, straight to point
My first visit so far so good.
he was very professional and the staff was very friendly....
I waited for almost 1 hours in a small lobby only to see the doctor and have him say he wont help me because I would develop keloids. Even though I have never gotten one in my 25 years of age. I will never go back and it was a waste of my co-pay.
Very personable and answered all my questions. The only reason I think it took longer to get me seen was due to paperwork. Staff is nice as well.
Dr. Bean is very thorough and listens to me.
He was calming and reassuring
I've only seen him once and I can say he and his staff are very professional.
