Dr. Beckham is very encouraging with advice on how to improve my health and always shows how pleased he is when I've followed his advice and have success. Recently we tried to reduce my meds, I followed Dr instructions for 3months and nothing I tried worked, I needed that little pill to keep my BP at a safe level. Dr acknowledged my effort and said he wasn't disappointed, made all the difference in how I felt. I had been feeling disappointed in my self before he said that. Happy patient

GREAT DOCTOR
August 13, 2018
Dr. Beckham was very friendly, outgoing, apologetic for the long wait; he felt like an old friend. He was clearly rushed, but since it was my first time, I didn't mind. I really liked him, as an individual, and felt very comfortable talking to him. He explained the tests he wants to perform, and he answered my questions. I would recommend him; he seems very sincere and knowledgeable. But if everyday is like the day I was there, I'd worry about his health! Stop and smell the flowers; life is too short!
August 13, 2018
Very knowledgeable, respectful and sincere, I felt very comfortable and I completely understood what his plan is.

Good DR
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.
July 17, 2018
Dr. Beckham is a knowledgeable cardiologist. He seems to be concerned about my health issues and wants to be helpful in my care.

He is excellent. As a matter of fact I choose him because I met him when I brought my patient to see him ( I have a residential facility for elderly) and I liked his bedside manners. I had met almost every doctors in the area,that’s why I switch cardiologist for myself too. He is an asset for PIH, I will never hesitate to recommend to friends and families of my patients.

Knowledgeable doctor and highly skilled, but does not take his time with the patient.
February 05, 2018
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.
