We've known Dr. Beerman for 13 years now while he has treated our son and daughter. We are thankful for him and his expertise in electrophysiology.
When i seen Dr. Beerman he's always a pleasant and professional doctor. He makes you feel comfortable and explains everything so you can understand it. He's my favorite doctor and I appreciate him a lot!!!
Dr. Beerman was professional and communicated very well. He has a wonderful personality.
Very pleased with Dr. Beerman.
Dr. Beerman has been my doctor for more than 20 years and I am alive today because of his treatment. I am so blessed to have him as a doctor.
I live Dr. beerman but i was unhappy how many times I was called by the office to reschedule my appointment.
I always leave feeling very satisfied with the care Dr. Beerman has given me for many years now. He takes his time and talks and Listens to me.Hope he doesn't retire any time soon although he deserves to rest and live a great life. I would miss him more than I can express.
Dr. Beerman was an excellent provider and I would recommend him for anyone, he is very helpful and explains himself perfectly.
we always have a great experience when seeing this doctor. He is the best.
always know we are in good hands with Dr Beerman
The level of healthcare service my child received from UPMC and Dr. Beerman was outstanding.
Dr. Beerman is a great Doctor. I am very happy with the care I receive from him.
He was very caring and polite have always had good experience with him and his assistant was very nice and helpful also this Dr I would never leave I trust him with my life
Dr. Beerman always spends extra time with me and makes sure i am comfortable with everything we talk about
dr. Bierman is a wonderful cardiologist and we are glad to have him, we just wish it was easier dealing with the hospital to get appointments and questions answered.
always professionals and courteous office is always clean and wait time is next to none.
everyone we encountered on our visit was extremely friendly and helpful
Dr Beerman and his staff are excellent. they made my daughter geel comfortable and relaxed enough for them to do the testing that they needed.
Dr Beerman is an amazing doctor!
Dr. Beerman is a wonderful doctor. we value his expertise.
Everyone we encountered was friendly and professional and made our visit very pleasant. We're very happy with our relationship with Dr. Beerman.
Dr. Beerman has some of the best bed side manner I've ever seen!
I think this was the fastest, most efficient check up I had in years. Usually I plan for 3-4hrs and I was done in 2.
Dr Beerman is a wonderful doctor. He takes the time to explain my son's condition in detail in terms I can understand. He even took the time to draw a picture of his heart so that I could fully understand his condition. My son spent 63 days in NICU. He is usually very easy going and we have no problem taking him places and doing things. However when he goes to the hospital or doctor's office he gets very upset and is far from an easy patient for medical staff and doctors to work with. Dr Beerman has always been very understanding and patient with him. We are very confident with Dr Beerman and are very thankful to have him as our son's cardiologist. Our minds are at ease knowing that he is under Dr Beerman's care, we know he is in very capable great hands.
Dr. Beerman was very easy to talk to. he explained everything I needed to know very well. he answered all my questions with answers I needed. the nursing staff was very polite. very easy to talk too.
I absolutely love Dr. Beerman. He has always treated me with respect and has never belittled me for researching and asking lots of questions or treated me like I was stupid like some doctors do. I do not like doctors with a God complex and I need to feel like my or my family's doctor is a partner and not a dictator when it comes to our health. I feel like Dr. Beerman is a partner in my son's care. Fortunately we do not have to see Dr. Beerman that often, only every two years for routine checkups on my son's BAV. But he has been one of my favorite doctors ever and I hope he never retires and continues to see my son for a long time. I have so much respect for him as a doctor. He has always taken as much time as we needed for appointments. He never ever made me feel like he was rushing to get onto his next appt and would thoroughly answer any question and no question was ever too stupid. There was only one time when we had an appt with him where he was running late (I do think there may have been some emergency as well but I'm not sure) and I will never ever complain if he is running late because I know he takes as much time that is needed with families and I would much rather him do that and be late for my appointment than rush through visits. I really hope you share this with him so he knows that I think he is a great doctor.
I have been bringing my 9 year old to dr Beermen since he was 3 he has been the best and explains things so we can understand them. The whole team is wonderful. And I will and have recommended them to other friends and family
I am always happy and satisfied when I see Dr. BEERMAN. HE TAKES HIS TIME, LISTENS AND ANSWERS my questions. He is a very caring and special doctor. Don't know what I will do when he retires, I would have a hard time adjusting to a new Dr. since I have known him over thirty years, and he has been my daughter's doctor too. Thank you Dr. Beerman for everything you do..I appreciate your thoughtfulness and going above and beyond. God bless you and Children's hospital.
The providers were professional, skilled, informative and friendly
always treated with care and importance
everyone was wonderful however our appt was at 10:30 am and we weren't even taken back until 11:30 then at the end of the visit had to wait an additional 30 min for the doctor to type up discharge paperwork. we did not get out of the doctors office until almost 2 pm

Dr Beerman was was great! He was very attentive when my daughter explained her symptoms and asked corresponding questions.
Dr. Beerman is the best health care provider that I could ask for and I am very fortunate to have him for my cardiac condition.
All is good!
Care was good. Most of the above questions in this section did not apply to my visit, therefore I did not respond to those questions and left blank.
I was impressed with the provider.
Always confident that our son is in the best hands possible with DR Beerman
With this being my first child and being born with a heart defect Dr. Beerman did an excellent job of reassuring me everything would be okay. He put things into terms that I knew and understood. I wouldn't ask for any other doctor or place to take my daughter.
Always excellent care and service!
Many thanks to Dr. Beerman and his staff for fitting us into his busy schedule at basically a moment's notice - we called on FRI and got to see him on TUE. Completely thorough evaluation of his medical concerns.
Dr Beerman and his Fellow went above and beyond to address any concerns I had! A++ to them both
We had an excellent visit with Dr. Beerman. He answered all of our questions & comcerns.
My son is mentally handicapped and I act as his guardian. He has been under the care of Dr. Beerman for over 40 yrs. We are so very fortunate to have him as my son's cardiologist. It is a special blessing.
it takes way to long for doctor to come in a visit you when your in the room needs to be way more faster
The only complaint is that my son had an appointment for 1:30pm and we got to see the doctor at 4:15pm. I took all day!
love Dr. Beerman,would not go to any other pediatric doctor
Dr. Beerman is a wonderful physician.
Always so confident in our care with Dr. Beerman.
I drive 9 hours to see Dr. Beerman and I would drive 1,000. He has given me something you cannot buy. He has extended the quality of my life by offering me the best treatment one could offer. I pray he is around for many more years.
dr beerman is awesome...my som adores him!
very good bedside manner. very friendly.
we absolutely love dr. Beerman!
Dr beerman is amazing I went to a doctor in my area that did not make me comfortable at all and did not explain anything to me when I got to meet Dr beerman he not only explained things but made me feel better and more relaxed I would recommend him to everyone
Dr. Beerman is an awesome doctor.
he is one of the best doctors I have ever seen, he is very knowledgable and makes sure that you feel comfortable with your medical situation
We were very pleased with Dr. Beerman. He took his time with us and answered all of our questions. He even went out of his way to find out the test results for two of our other sons who had EKG's at Children's to see if their QT's were in the normal range.
I feel my son is in the best hands with DR Beerman
Dr. Beerman and staff are excellent providers. I am sure that my health would not be as good today if it were not for the care I receive from them.
Dr. Beerman was my son's doctor years ago. I have full faith in him. Excellent doctor.
We were so happy with dr beerman and his staff, especially the nurses and medical assistants. We would recommend this practice to anyone!
Dr. Beerman and his staff were excellent. Additionally, registration was superb
Dr. Beerman is an excellent doctor!
Very professional, easy to talk to and understand, made us feel very comfortable.
Very grateful that Dr Beerman take my child seriously especially when dealing with the invisibility of dysautonomia symtoms.
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.
