We see many specialists, all from Children's. All are very knowledgeable and excellent providers, but Dr. Beerman is by far the best there is to offer. He not only is a very experienced and knowledgeable cardiologist, but is a very kind and caring man. He truly makes you feel like you are his only patient. He never rushes you out the door and takes the time to answer all your questions and concerns. Nurses and reception staff in the Monroeville office also very nice.
Dr. Beerman has always been very attentive when we meet with him and we have always appreciated his care.

Dr. Beerman is a phenomenal physician and trust him with the utmost respect in my health care.
Dr. Beerman is an excellent doctor who always listens, discusses things with us and explains things clearly and concisely. My daughter has been his patient since birth, and she trusts him implicitly.

Great doctor, can not say enough good things about Dr.Beerman, wonderful man!
everything was great as usual.
Dr. Beerman was wonderful. I have already told a few people about him; knowledgeable, caring, interested, made us feel at ease. Just fantastic overall.
In the 21 plus years i have been coming to Dr. Beerman, he has always been extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and gave me the best care.
Would definitely recommend Dr. Beerman --he is very professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. Answered all of my questions and carefully reviewed my child's records and tests. One of my other children also has seen Dr. Beerman for heart issues, and we have always had the same level of excellent care from him.
Extremely happy with the care my son receives at Heart Institute @ Childrens in Monroeville!
Dr. Beerman was wonderful. He spoke using terms that we could understand. He took his time with us and did not rush. He was able to diagnose my daughter's condition just by listening to her heart. He was right on the mark. I am thankful that my daughter had the pleasure of being treated by Dr. Beerman.
Excellent provider, dr. Beerman was compassionate,kind,respectfull and had a great bedside manner. I truly felt comfortable and had faith in him...I would definitely recommend him
Very good experience considering.
Dr. Beerman has been my for a long time and I feel as though he's a family member!
I have been coming to Childrens and seeing Dr. Beerman my whole life, and I truly appreciate what he and his staff have done for me. And I would recommend them to anyone.
It's hard forDr. Beerman to always be on time due to echo test, pacemaker testing etc. He gives all his patients is undived attention for as long a necessary. I always feel like I have had a good check up with him, and he will take his time to answer all your questions. He is never allowed to retire as long as I am still around; in my eyes he is irriplacable. He is one of the few Drs. who truely cares for his patients and goes the extra mile. Love you Dr. Beeman !!!!!!!!!
Dr. Beerman has always been personable, friendly and encouraged my son and I to be participants in his cardiac care. I appreciate the time he spends getting to know my son and taking the time to answer all of my questions. I never feel rushed for time with Dr. Beerman.
Very grateful that Dr Beerman take my child seriously especially when dealing with the invisibility of dysautonomia symtoms.
Very professional, easy to talk to and understand, made us feel very comfortable.
