Ratings for Dr. Craig A. Beard
Dr. Beard performed knee surgery on me in 2008. Prior to that I was fornunate to be a part of his operating team in the operating room. He is a professional and his expertise highly exceeds his qualifications. I have no doubts about his abilities or skill levels. I know I can count on integrity and honesty when consulting in the office. He does not sugar coat anything. He's just a down to earth good person. He will continue to be my orthopedic physician every time I need one.
Dr. Beard has completed two knee surgeries for me. The first one was in 1993 ACL along with meniscus, and the second was meniscus only. He has been excellent both times. He spent more than 30 minutes on the phone with me explaining my results and what needed to be done. He allowed me to ask all the questions I needed and never once made me feel like I was being rushed. His bedside manner is excellent and he is so very nice. He staff helped me navigate workers comp for the second injury, and although they could have a bit more personality, they helped me tremendously. I am very pleased with the service and operation, and will not see any other orthopaedic specialist besides Dr. Beard.
I had knee surgery on Feb 21,2008 I feel he was understanding about my feelings.and the timing he let me pick the day and time that fitted me best.He didn't push me in to having my surgery.He let me make the choice of having it done.I would tell my friends and family about him.He's honest with you.Thats what I like in a doctor.
Knee replacement surgery was performed by Dr. Craig Beard. Resulting in an artery being cut in my leg. It bled into my lower leg which caused compartment syndrome. I almost lost my leg. They were ready to amputate my leg. Me and my family decided to go to another hospital for treatment in another city. My leg was saved after many surgery's, however I am left with no feeling in my foot and a problem known as "drop foot" where I am unable to move my ankle and foot, it drops down and I can not raise it up. I can still walk but with great difficulty. Just the facts.
