December 23, 2019
Dr. Beckham is a reasonable doctor. One of the few cardiologists that are reasonable. He just seems always rushed because his schedule is so full. I think you guys (PIH) need to schedule fewer patients every day so the doctors have more time with their patients. Otherwise, some patients might start seeking help elsewhere. Just sayin'.
