What Patients are Saying About Dr. Douglas Beard, MD

I am pleased to remind you that on April 16, 2012 it has been one year since you operated on my back for spinal stenosis. I am delighted to tell you that from the time I regained consciousness in my room, I have never had any pain in my back, none whatsoever. I have followed your recommendation to walk a lot, so I walk one mile every day and go to wellness conditioning classes two times a week. To be relieved of back pain after about 15-16 years is a miracle. I owe a sincere thank you to you and your staff for preforming that miracle. My God bless you Dr. Beard. Thanks again.

— Bob

Every day when I get up and head into the kitchen to have a cup of coffee, I sit down and give thanks to you doctors that have given me new life for my old back/spine. I consider myself VERY LUCKY to have you for my doctors, and also VERY LUCKY that you have found the time to operate on me. Maybe VERY LUCKY is not the correct word to use, possible I should say it is a miracle that you have “fixed” me.

— Tom
