The whole experience was wonderful. Staff and Doctor are wonderful people
the pediatric heart care from Pittsburg is excellent
I redoubled expressing my concerns when I felt it was important that he should hear me out. The provider told me how he felt, reassured me. The next day, I got a call which told me that my provider cares enough to ask his colleges if there was anything else he could do for my concerns and has set me up with another test to reassure me that I am ok.
Excellent provider, excellent staff! Able to fully discuss my daughter's health issue from all angles resulting in a plan of treatment and tests.

Dr.Beerman knows my son well, even though he only sees him annually for check-ups. I appreciate that he remembers personal things about my son. He truly cares about his patients.
We waited quite a while to see the doctor, but were satisfied with the visit overall.
Excellent provider - always a pleasure to work with him on my daughter's care.
My visit with Doctor Beerman was good. But, we waited way to long for my appointment!
awesome care received
Dr Beerman is the best doctor ever.
Dr. Beerman has been our son's physician since he was a baby, almost 16 years ago. The doctor always takes his time to explain our son's diagnosis and to answer our questions. Dr. Beerman is very knowledgeable, and our family trusts him.
Dr. ,Beerrman is #1. There may be a longer wait for him because he gives all of his patients the time they need. Never feel rushed like some.other doctors.
Dr. Beerman has been involved with our daughter since she was two days old and although our visits are farther apart than when she was younger, he always takes the time he needs with us. My wife and I are grateful for all he has done for our daughter.
My son was being seen as a follow up appt from having a catherization/ablation done on his heart due to Supra Venticular Tachicardia. Since the onset of this we've received nothing but excellent care from Dr Beerman and Staff at CHP. Thank you very much for having excellent Drs and Staff.
I am very pleased with the care I get from Dr. Beerman and his staff. They are very knowledgable about my health.

Dr. Beerman is a very caring and thorough doctor. I have been lucky to have him as a patient for so long and do not look forward to the day he retires.

Dr. Beerman is the best. Takes his time, answers all my questions and has kept me going when things didn't look good. He never gave up on me. There should be more Dr.s like him. Compassionate, kind, caring, and a gentleman. Can't say enough good things about Dr. Lee Beerman.
He would have gotten a higher ranking but we always have to wait a long time to see him. We really like him and maybe the nature of his specialty causes him delays but if that's the case then perhaps the scheduling should be changed so the waiting isn't consistently so long.
Dr. Beerman is always very helpful, knowledgeable, and spends the time needed with us. We are very appreciative of him. He is one of the very best!
He was great
Dr. Beerman is an amazing cardiologist and I always feel that my child is in the best posssible hands with him.

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 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.
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.
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
