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.

Positive, focused, attentive, looks at you directly while listening and also when talking. Chooses his words carefully and ensures his message is clear and understood. When he asks a question, he clearly wants to hear the answer. Did not quickly move on to the next question while I was still answering the last. Dr. Beckham raises the standard for what the Dr. / Patient experience should be each and every time. Thanks!

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.

The Doctor was kind, friendly, and knowledgeable. The wait of over an hour in the exam room was not acceptable.

The office staff was great. I needed to schedule some tests, and one staffer was on the phone calling my home as I was waiting for another staffer to schedule. The 1st staffer had my husband on the phone before she realized I was standing by her. We all (including hubby) got a good laugh and I commended them for their efficiency. Seriously, this visit exceeded my expectations for both the time it took, and the quality of care I received from Dr. Beckham and his staff.
