July 24, 2018
Dr. Beckham is excellent! PIH has issues scheduling timely appointments, especially for fairly urgent issues such as Cardiology. Lastly, my understanding is that there are only (5) Heart Monitor/Recorders available for the entire Hospital and Cardiology department. Waiting list to gain access to a monitor is approximately a Month. For those suffering with Cardio issues, this is not satisfactory.
July 24, 2018
Dr Beckham was very thorough with explaining what he wants to do and what he wants to check. Very warming person.

Dr. Beckham is the best cardiologist I have ever seen! He is both professional and knowledgeable yet it is his positive, kind, and caring demeanor that impressed me the most. He took the time to familiarize himself with my medical history and reviewed my test results before devising a course of treatment. Throughout the exam he looked me in the eye and addressed me by name plus he shook my hand at the beginning and the end of the consultation. I have had doctors who never even looked up from the file or computer screen the entire time! I would strongly recommend Dr. Beckham to anyone seeking the services of a cardiologist.

Yes
October 02, 2017
I think the wait is worth seeing Dr. Beckham, he has the knowledge and experience. Since the heart is a very serious matter, you want the best doctor and Dr. Beckham is one of the best. The thing is you may see him in the hospital or the clinic. Eventually there is a relaxed communication.That's important, to be able follow his instructions. Although there should be a place where exercise is available.Something connected to the cardiac department. Cardiac exercise program, you can't just say exercise.
