I was referred here by Tricare because gynecology on Fort Bragg wasn't able to accommodate me. What a blessing that turned out to be! Dr. Beal has been the first doctor I've seen since being here that has taken a vested interest in my problems and has bent over backwards to try to help me. I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2009 and because of that I have very abnormal periods, they're abnormal even for sufferers of PCOS. When I first saw Dr. Beal I informed her my husband was PCSing very shortly so I didn't have a lot of time left in the area. Instead of just brushing me aside and letting me be someone else's problem she jumped in and took on the challenge. She was able to get more done for me in 4 weeks as far as testing and appointments than the Army clinics on post in 4 years. With them I was always made to feel like a number with my questions and concerns constantly brushed aside. Dr. Beal has been professional, caring and amazing in every aspect. I kind of wish we'd be here a little longer just so I could continue to work with her rather than having to find a new OB/GYN at my husband's new duty station. She has worked tirelessly to make sure that I'll be armed with everything I need once I do find a new doctor, so I won't have to go through this all over again like the doctors at the clinic on post have made me do several times over.
I also have to give kudos to Dr. Beal's staff. Every person I've encountered in the office has been friendly, supportive and helpful. I have never had longer than a 15 minute wait to be processed and seen and that was only because I was 15 minutes early. My appointments have always been right on time. I would highly recommend Dr. Beal to any of my friends in the area.
Good riddance – I went to see Dr. Beal the first time in 2007. On the first visit, she gave me a pitch for this natural and herbal remedies. She showed me a catalog and gave me her website where I could buy them. I found it very unprofessional not only that a doctor would be trying to sell me something in their office but that it had cut into my time as a patient to listen to the schpeel. Nevertheless, I kept her
The second visit, I had scheduled an appointment and when I arrived, the office was no longer there. I was baffled, to say the least. I called the old number and they told me where the new office was. I told them I had no idea they had moved. They said that notifications had been sent in the mail. I told them I never got one. They insisted they did. Still, I kept her
One day, I started bleeding vaginally. Called them to make an appointment and they told me I had to wait 10 days. I was outraged that I had to wait such a long time when there was obviously something wrong with me. They never tried to accommodate me, nothing was offered. I ended up calling my brother in law, who happens to be a doctor. He told me more than likely it was the hormones I was taking. He advised me to stop taking them and call my doctor. I told him I wouldn’t be able to get in earlier than 10 days. He was upset not only by the fact that I had to wait so long, but also because I should have never been put on hormones with family history of breast cancer in the family. I stopped taking hormones. The bleeding went away. Went to see Dr. Beal after 10 days and she agreed with my brother in law’s decision. Still, I kept her
Another time, I ended up in the ER with severe abdominal pain. After 5 hours, I was seen by a doctor. They did a Cat Scan and found a mass in my cervix. They called Dr. Beal, she gave instructions to call her the next day to schedule an appointment. The whole ER incident took 10 hours from start to finish. I called Dr. Beal’s office the next day, related the incident of the previous day and I was told it would be 2 weeks before I could see her. I lost it! I was finally able to get an earlier appointment. The day of the appointment, after waiting over an hour to be called, I handed Dr. Beal the ER results. She suggested that a biopsy should be performed. I am pretty scared at this point. So, I go to the front desk to schedule it, then they tell me that it would be 18 days before they had an opening. I was floored! I asked them if there was another office or place that could perform it. They said no. I got very loud and told them they had to find a way to schedule it ASAP. They found a way to squeeze me in for the following week. Biopsy was done and on the follow up appointment, I was told everything was fine, no further action needed to be taken. Upon exiting my consultation, I approached the front desk, asked them for my medical records because I would be changing doctors. They told me it would be $40 and that it would take a couple of days. I paid and told them to call them as soon as they had them ready . Picked up my records, never went back again.
